NBA Lines – San Antonio Spurs to Bounce Back with Decisive Victory over Lakers
Written by North Shore Sports, INC
Western Conference rivals are set to battle one another against the NBA lines at Bookmaker Sportsbook Wednesday night in San Antonio where the Spurs will attempt to knock off the Los Angeles Lakers in the team’s first meeting of the regular season.
The Los Angeles Lakers (36-22, 23-35 ATS) and San Antonio Spurs (40-15, 33-19-3 ATS) are finally set to square off against the NBA lines when they meet up for the first time this season on Wednesday, April 11; catch the live tip from the AT&T Center on NBA League Pass starting at 8:30 ET.
Though the Lakers currently hold a 1.5-game lead over the Clippers for the top spot in the Pacific Division and currently hold the #3 seed in the Western Conference playoff standings, they’ve cost their betting backers money hand over fist managing just two pointspread covers the L/15 times they took to the hardwood. Kobe Bryant has sat out of their last two games as he deals with a tendon injury in his left shin; his availability for tonight’s game is still in question.
Last time out, the Lakers squeezed a 93-91 win out at New Orleans but failed to cover the closing four-point NBA betting line. That effort came two days after they got pounded in the desert by a resurgent Phoenix Suns outfit 125-105. The split of the two-game roady dropped Head Coach Mike Brown’s squad to 13-16 SU & 10-19 ATS away from the Staples Center on the year. LA has split its 16 games played against the Top 10 ranked teams on the Sagarin Ratings, and have only managed a 1-3 SU mark versus the L/3 it’s faced (Clippers, Thunder, Grizzlies).
San Antonio’s 11-game winning streak came to a screeching halt their last time out in Utah where they fell to the Jazz by a 91-84 final count as four-point underdogs. Head Coach Gregg Popovich rested his superstars in that match-up though (Parker, Ginobili, Duncan) like he’s done a number of times this season in trying to deal with the ridiculous strike shortened schedule. That trio did play in the first leg of the home and home series with the Jazz, and the Spurs went on to win 114-104 but pushed against the 10-point closing spread.
Ever since January 30th, San Antonio has been the most lucrative team to back in NBA lines action! Besides winning 28 of the 34 games played since that point, the Spurs went on to earn their betting backers pointspread covers in 23 of those contests. To date, San Antonio checks in as the best overall bet in the league amassing a lucrative 33-19-3 ATS record. The Spurs have won 23 of the 27 games they’ve played in front of the hometown faithful (19-7-1 ATS), and check in 12-6 SU versus the Sagarin Ratings Top 10 teams.
NBA Lines Prediction: The Spurs were embarrassed against the Lakers the last time they welcomed them into the AT&T Center falling 99-83 as three-point favorites. They then lost the final meeting of the regular season in their last trip to Staples. While LA has held the upper hand covering nine of the L/13 overall meetings, it’s hardly playing at the level of the Spurs right now and is dealing with a troubling injury to its best player. Look for San Antonio to take advantage of that and refuse to take its foot off the gas pedal in making a statement to its hated rival. The Spurs have covered each of their L/7 following an outright defeat, and after tonight’s game concludes, look for that streak to be pushed to eight in a row!
Can a wounded Lakers outfit go into San Antonio and manage to pull out the win/cover, or will the Spurs take no mercy on their opponent and cruise to the NBA lines victory?
