NBA Playoffs betting will resume Saturday with a western conference sportsbook betting matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets. NBA Playoffs betting enters the final four round with the winner of this sportsbook betting series heading to the NBA Finals.
The Denver Nuggets have been the most successful and profitable team in NBA Playoffs betting this spring. The Nuggets paid off their sportsbook betting backers 11 out of 11 times in playoff action. Offense is the major reason for the Nuggets NBA Playoffs betting success as they ranked 1st in the NBA for playoff scoring. Carmelo Anthony is the spark to the Denver offense and he ranked 5th in the NBA for playoff scoring with an average of 28.1 points per game.
Chauncey Billups has also been a NBA Playoffs betting asset for Denver as he ranked 9th in the NBA for scoring with an average of 21.7 points per game. Billups also leads Denver in assists this
The Los Angeles Lakers covered just 6 out of their first 13 NBA Playoffs betting appearances this year and went under the total in 9 out of those 13 games. The Lakers have been an erratic NBA Playoffs betting commodity and have been labeled as “soft” for their poor performance against the undermanned Houston Rockets, who LA struggled to beat in 7 games last round. LA is also a strong NBA Playoffs betting offensive team as they ranked 4th in the league for playoffs scoring. Their defense ranked only 8th so far in the playoffs, however, making this an even matchup.
This will be Denver’s opening home game of the series and they have renewed interest in the NBA at the Mile High City. The home crowd will definitely be on the Nuggets side and a potential asset in the game.

Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
