Bet Tonight’s NBA Game

WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE: Los Angeles. As of Friday evening, 67% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Nuggets to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 63% of the betting tickets are on the over.

WHO WE LIKE: The home team is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams while the favorite has cashed in five of the last seven meetings. The Lakers, meanwhile, are just 5-14 at the betting window in their last 19 games against the Nuggets and are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five trips to Denver. Given the Lakers’ inability to close games, I see the Nuggets eventually pulling away in this one. Denver won’t overlook an improved L.A. squad.
