NBA Basketball Betting: Portland Trailblazers vs. L.A. Lakers

NBA basketball betting offers two of the best teams in the west as the surprising Trailblazers and powerful Lakers meet in NBA betting action from LA.

NBA basketball betting fans continue to gain respect for Portland while the question for LA is which NBA betting commodity will show up here?  It was not that long ago when the Portland Trailblazers were a NBA basketball betting pariah that was unwanted by gamblers and considered a disgrace by their fans and community.

Portland has quickly gotten their NBA basketball betting act together since that bad stretch in franchise history.  Portland had an overall NBA basketball betting record of 19-12 straight up which was good for a share of first place in the Northwest division with the Denver Nuggets.

The Trailblazers were 14-16 against the basketball betting odds.  As a NBA basketball betting road team Portland was just 6-11 against the spread.  The home team was 19-11 against the NBA betting odds in all Portland games this season.

From December 16 through December 27 the Blazers went on a nice NBA basketball betting stretch in which they got the cash in 4 out of 6 games.  Brandon Roy has proven to be a strong NBA betting asset as he was averaging 23 points per game to lead the Blazers.

Roy also led the team in assists while Joel Przybilla led in rebounds with an average of over 8 per game.  Portland was a solid NBA basketball betting defensive team with a ranking of 10th overall.

The Los Angeles Lakers were just 1-8 against the basketball betting odds before their highly anticipated Christmas Day showdown with the Boston Celtics, which they won 92-83 as 2 point NBA basketball betting favorites.

It seems as if the Lakers were suffering from a combination of NBA basketball betting boredom as well as probably being guilty of peeking ahead to Boston.  When you are a superpower team that plays in the terrible Pacific division, boredom is understandable.

Kobe Bryant is one of the most valuable weapons in NBA basketball betting as he was averaging over 26 points per game.
