NBA Basketball Betting: Top Weeknight Games January 24-27

NBA Basketball Betting Top Weeknight Games January 24-27

At the onset of the week are rumblings out of Los Angeles about the NBA betting woes of the Lakers. To show, the Lakers are fighting for their playoff lives. Of great concern is that LeBron James called the team out a few days ago. James ripped his teammates for inconsistent efforts. Of course, that put the spotlight on head coach Frank Vogel. The Lakers bought into Vogel’s defensive emphasis two years ago and won the championship. This year they take too many possessions off on the defensive end of the court.

Late on, the Lakers have covered only two of their previous six. Los Angeles has an NBA betting record of 23-23 straight up, 19-27 against the spread, and 25-20 over the total. NBA metrics show the Lakers ranked an abysmal 27th for points per game allowed. Of great concern is that LeBron James (abdominal) and Anthony Davis (knee) are day-day statuses.

Brooklyn has perked up with four payouts in their most recent six games. Now the Nets stand at 29-16 straight up, 19-26 against the spread, and 21-24 under the total.
