NBA betting odds will be posted on a worst/first basketball betting matchup from Staples Center in Los Angeles. NBA betting odds have been generous to the Grizzlies as of late while the Lakers are an expensive basketball betting commodity.
The Memphis Grizzlies have been one of the worst teams in the NBA all season but have recently done well against the NBA betting odds. From March 27 through April 3 the Grizzlies went on a nice basketball betting stretch in which they got the cash in 4 out of 5 games.
Memphis had an overall record, however, of just 21-54 straight up and 33-41-1 against the NBA betting odds. Memphis was 16-21 against the NBA betting odds in road action. The big problem for the Grizzlies against the NBA betting odds has been their 30th ranked so-called "offense." Their defense was a more respectable 14th. Memphis has been break even on the over/under board this season.
As usual, the Los Angeles Lakers, like a fine car, are one of the best but one of the most expensive teams to play against the NBA betting odds. LA had a basketball betting record of 60-16 straight up and 39-37 against the NBA betting odds.
The Lakers have operated in the red at home this season with a mark of 17-20 against the NBA betting odds as a host. The Lakers have been a streaky team all season against the NBA betting odds. A great example of this comes from March 15 through April 1 when the Lakers first failed to cover 3 straight games, then had 4 straight payoffs, and then lost their next 3 straight against the NBA betting odds.
The problem that gamblers have with taking Los Angeles, especially at home, is that everyone in the general betting public has the same idea and the odds makers are fully aware of this public demand, which forces them to jack the line up on LA past the point of true value, meaning that to bet on the Lakers, especially at the Staples Center, means making consistent overlays that cannot possibly be sustained.
