NBA Playoffs odds will be posted for game 6 of the western conference final sportsbook betting matchup between the Lakers and Nuggets at Denver. NBA Playoffs odds have been beaten 3 out of 5 times in this sportsbook betting series by the Nuggets but they trail in the series 3-2 and face elimination.
The Los Angeles Lakers are only 8-9 against the NBA Playoffs odds so far this post season. As is always the case they are the most popular team in NBA sportsbook betting and, as a result, the most expensive. The Lakers rarely bring full value against the NBA Playoffs odds and this year is no exception. The Lakers have been a strong “under” team against the NBA Playoffs odds as they have posted 12 unders in 17 games.
Denver, on the other hand, has been the most valuable and hottest team against the NBA Playoffs odds as they have gotten the cash in 13 out of 15 games. Denver was something of an after-thought to most gamblers against the NBA Playoffs odds as the Lakers grab most of the attention and the dollars making the Nuggets a tremendous value on the board for savvy gamblers.
Denver has the top ranked offense in the NBA Playoffs as they are averaging 109.0 points per game. The Lakers are averaging 101.9 points per game which is 4th best in the NBA Playoffs. LA’s Kobe Bryant is averaging 29.3 points per game which is 2nd best in the playoffs. Denver’s Carmelo Anthony is 5th in NBA playoff scoring with 27.3 points per game
For game 6 the Nuggets will bring strong intangibles against the NBA Playoffs odds. They will be playing at home in front of a boisterous sell out crowd and they will be facing elimination from the Playoffs. All of this should add up to an all out effort against the NBA Playoffs odds. The question is whether it will be enough. The other question is which Laker team will the Nuggets be facing? The Lakers have been in and out throughout the playoffs, just doing enough to get by. They will need to bring their “A Game” to Denver for this one!

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.
