Sports book gambling fans saw the defending world champion Lakers as far and away the top on line sports gambling commodity in the Pacific as well as the Western Conference. The Lakers have not disappointed as they had a sports book gambling record of 46-17 straight up although they continue to be a horrible on line sports gambling overlay with a mark of 26-35-2 against the spread.
The Lakers are one of the most popular teams in all of sports gambling online and that kills their overall board value. The Lakers have also emerged as a sports book gambling favorite of the “undertakers” as just 27 out of their 63 games went over the total.
The resurgent Phoenix Suns are the only other sports book gambling commodity in the Pacific Division with a winning straight up record at 39-25. The Suns were also making solid sports book gambling profits with a mark of 37-26-1 against the spread.
Phoenix was especially solid on the road with a sports book gambling mark of 20-13 against the spread. The Suns have gone back to their old run and gun style and rank 1st in the NBA for team scoring but just 28th overall for points allowed.
Despite those numbers Phoenix has gone over the sports book gambling total in just 28 out of 64 games as they are drawing far too many public dollars on the “over” due to their reputation. The rest of the Pacific Division is a sports book gambling wasteland.
The Los Angeles Clippers were 25-37 straight up and 28-34 against the spread, including a weak 18-27 as underdogs. The Sacramento Kings were 21-41 straight up and 31-29-2 against the spread.
The Golden State Warriors were in the basement with a mark of 17-44 straight up but were a profitable 34-26-1 against the board as line makers were sweetening the pot for a reluctant public. Golden State was 17-12-1 against the spread as a dog.
