The Lakers are not just one of the most popular teams in all of NBA betting but rather in all of sports betting, period! The Lakers, as a result, are often one of the worst basketball betting values on the board as gamblers will get less of a price than what is actually merited on the basketball betting lines.
The one area that the Lakers do offer basketball betting value is as a visitor. Los Angeles had a basketball betting record of 22-17 against the spread in road play this season. Kobe Bryant, as always, is the man that makes the Lakers go.
Bryant is one of the elite assets in all of basketball betting and he was leading the Lakers in scoring with an average of 27.2 points per game. He also led the team in assists. Pao Gasol led the Lakers in rebounds with an average of 9.5 per game. Los Angeles is one of the best offensive teams in the league and ranked 3rd overall.
Their defense, on the other hand, ranked just 13th best. The Lakers have been trending heavily under against the basketball betting lines as of late. From March 15 through April 3 LA went under the total in 10 out of 11 games. The Sacramento Kings have had a train wreck of a basketball betting season.
Sacramento had a basketball betting record of 16-59 straight up and 36-39 against the spread. The Kings have not offered much value against the spread at home this year as they were just 15-22 against the board as a host. The Kings do have a surprisingly good offense that ranked 11th overall in the league.
Their defense, however, ranked a pathetic 29th and is the reason for their demise. Sacramento did payoff gamblers 3 out of 4 times from March 29 through April 3, showing that they can bring surprise value on occasion.
