Basketball Betting: Boston Celtics vs. LA Lakers

Basketball betting Christmas Day features the Lakers and Celtics in a likely NBA basketball betting preview of the 2009 Finals.

Basketball betting fans have had this one circled on the calendar since the schedule was released last summer.  This is the biggest NBA basketball betting matchup in this series since the Bird/Magic days!  After a basketball betting start to the season that featured a flood of red ink, the Boston Celtics have seen a strong resurgence in their NBA basketball betting value.

Boston had a nice basketball betting run going since the beginning of December as they got the cash in 6 out of 9 games.  Boston had an overall basketball betting record of a phenomenal 25-2 straight up and 15-12 against the basketball betting odds.

In road basketball betting action the Celtics were 6-5 against the spread with 6 of those 11 games going under the total.  Ray Allen has been a strong presence for Boston as he led the team in scoring with an average of 19 points per game.  Kevin Garnett has averaged close to 10 rebounds per game.

The Celtics have been strong on both sides of the court ranking 8th overall on offense and 2nd overall on defense.  The Los Angeles Lakers are always one of the most popular teams in NBA basketball betting which consistently holds down their overall board value and this year is no different.

Los Angeles had an overall basketball betting record of 21-4 straight up and 11-14 against the basketball betting odds. At home the Lakers had a basketball betting mark of 6-9 against the spread.  Los Angeles had a strong basketball betting trend on the over/under board, however, as 11 of their 15 home games have gone over the total.

The Lakers have been in a basketball betting meltdown since December 5 as they lost 8 consecutive games against the spread.

Not only has the linemaker caught up the with Lakers and jacked their prices up sky high but there is also basketball betting speculation that the Lakers are “bored” by playing in the weak Pacific Division and with their huge lead overall in the Western Conference.  Kobe Bryant leads LA with an average of over 25 points per game.
