Bet On LA Lakers Games
The simplest way to bet for the Lakers is to play them on the money line. In this American system, the prices on teams show up as either a minus or plus number indicating the favorite or the underdog. A favorite listed as -150 means a bet of $150 is required to win $100 while an underdog at +135 means $135 is the payout for a $100 bet. The payouts are measured by the amount of risk associated with each bet.
Golden eras: they are arguably the most successful franchise in the NBA. As of the end of the 2015-2016 season, the Lakers are first in the NBA in regular season wins and are second in championships. The franchise has not gone beyond three seasons without making the playoffs although their current form may continue to extend that record. As history dictates, it won’t be long before the Lakers rise from the ashes and contend again.
Celtics rivalry: the Lakers’ rivalry with the Boston Celtics is one of the most storied in sports. As of 2016, the two franchises have faced each other 357 times with the Celtics holding a slight edge winning 55.5 percent of the games. They have the two most NBA titles and combine for 33 of the NBA’s 69 titles. The two have met in the NBA Finals a total of twelve times with the most recent coming in 2010. The Celtics hold a 9-3 edge overall.
Lakers on the spread: the rebuilding Lakers don’t get too many wins but they could still be a valuable commodity on the point spread. For this type of bet, a certain amount of points is allotted that each team has to “cover”. A spread of +8.5 means the team has up to eight points to lose while a spread of -2.5 means the team has to win by three or more.
