NBA Betting: LA Lakers vs. Miami Heat

NBA betting includes an attractive inter-conference pairing of the Lakers and Heat as online basketball betting handicappers will evaluate a star-studded affair.

NBA betting on the Lakers has seen a sharp drop in overall board value after LA got off to a most surprising start against the online basketball betting number, at least for such a “public” team.  NBA betting fans have always flocked to the Lakers.  They are one of the most “public” teams in all of online basketball betting, if not sports overall.

This has generally meant that the Lakers have very little NBA betting value to offer, especially at home.  On the road, the Lakers offer better online basketball betting value here and there, though it is still not consistently reliable.

Los Angeles is coming off a tough NBA betting stretch from November 28 through December 12 in which they went 2-7 against the NBA betting lines.  The Lakers also had a strong over/under NBA betting string from November 25 through December 12 in which they went over the total in 7 out of 10 games.

Overall the Lakers had a record of a brilliant 19-3 straight up but just 10-11 against the NBA betting number.  Los Angeles was 5-4 against the spread in road action with 5 of their 9 away games going under the total.  Speaking of a lack of NBA betting value, the Miami Heat have been even worse at bringing home the bacon than the Lakers.

Miami is basically a one man team with Dwyane Wade, but even he cannot carry the entire NBA betting load, great as he is.  Wade was averaging 29 points per game scoring to lead Miami.  He also led the Heat in assists with 7 per game.

From November 24 through December 12 Miami went on a rough NBA betting stretch in which they were 2-7 against the spread, despite going 5-4 straight up, which is indicative of their lack of board value.  Overall Miami stood at 12-10 straight up and just 8-13-1 against the NBA betting lines.

At home Miami was 4-7 against the spread.  In over/under NBA betting Miami went 7-4 over the total at home. offers the Lakers and Heat for you now, so be sure and visit now to open an account!
