NBA: LA Lakers vs. Milwaukee Bucks betting preview
All good things must come to an end, and the Lakers’ perfect start was no exception as they suffered back-to-back losses before heading to the Midwest for a three-game stint. The oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com don’t expect the Lakers to drop another one as they are currently 3.5-point favorites tonight as they visit Milwaukee.
The reigning champs fell short by six in Denver last Thursday and went down Sunday at home 121-116 against Phoenix, which shot an incredible 22-of-40 from three-point land. The 22 three-pointers were the second-highest total in NBA history. Despite outrebounding (62-38) and outscoring (68-28) Phoenix in the paint, L.A. was unable to stop the Suns’ phenomenal outside shooting.
Kobe Bryant was one rebound away from a triple-double, and Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom both had more than 20 points and 10 boards. If the Lakers take this offense on the road, they will have no problem beating Milwaukee Tuesday night. Bryant is 21-4 in his career against the Bucks, averaging 23.9 PPG against them. Look for L.A. to bounce back in these next three road games, all of which are against teams at .500 or below.
Milwaukee is on a three-game win streak and was afforded two days of rest after a 79-72 win against the Warriors in the Bradley Center. John Salmons led the team with 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting and Brandon Jennings had his third double-double on the season with 19 points and career-high 11 boards. This matchup against the Lakers will be the Bucks’ fourth straight game against a top-10 scoring team. Milwaukee held its last three opponents to an average of 19.8 points below each team’s scoring average on the season. The Bucks, who are allowing a league-low 89.4 points per game, will need to play tight defense against the league’s top-scoring Lakers (112.5 PPG) if they want any chance to get a win against the defending champs.
The Lakers have won the past five games SU in the series, but the NBA betting public has cashed on the other side as Milwaukee is 7-1 ATS in the past eight meetings with the Lakers.
However, this NBA betting trend found at Sportsbook.com indicates that the Lakers will cover the point spread.
Play On - Road favorites (LA LAKERS) - after being beaten by the spread by 24 or more points total in their last three games against opponent after going under the total by 54 or more points total in their last ten games. (38-14 since 1996.) (73.1%, +22.6 units. Rating = 2*).

NBA: Top NBA Weekend Power Trends 2/19-2/21
The trade deadline has passed in the NBA and several teams made significant moves to either improve their teams or their financial flexibility preparing for the upcoming offseason’s huge free agent period. Perhaps the most notable trade was the Cavaliers obtaining Antawn Jamison from the Wizards to better their chances at another NBA Finals appearance. They, along with almost all of other 29 teams will be in action as the league plays its first full post-all-star-break weekend of games. Read on as I take a look at the most compelling contests, and reveal some of this weekend’s Top StatFox Power Trends that you’ll want to consider in your wagering.
The Friday night board is highlighted by two games on ESPN. In the first one, Dallas, with its retooled roster, travels to Orlando to take on the Magic. The Mavericks made a big trade with Washington this week to try and improve their chances of a deep postseason run. The initial results were favorable, as they were able to snap out of a funk with a big win over Phoenix on Wednesday. At Orlando, Dallas will put its 7-14 ATS record off an ATS win to test. The Magic stayed as is for the stretch run and need to be a little more consistent if they hope to reach the NBA Finals once again. In the late game, Boston continues its road trip with a stop in Portland. The Celtics have won the first two games out West, including Thursday night in Los Angeles. They have enjoyed success against the Blazers, winning eight of the L10 both SU & ATS. Elsewhere, Cleveland, who had its 13-game winning streak snapped by Denver on Thursday night, looks to start a new one when it takes on the Bobcats in Charlotte. The Cavaliers have proven much more reliable on the road this season for bettors, going 16-10 ATS.
On Saturday, there are seven games to choose from for bettors, none bigger than that between Miami and Dallas. The Heat hoped to make a big move before the trade deadline but couldn’t piece it together, now they have to hope that loyalty, and perhaps some success the rest of this season, can convince Dwyane Wade to stick around. Both teams will be on back-to-back’s with Miami having played in Memphis the night before, and Dallas coming off a game in Orlando. The Heat are 4-8 SU & ATS on zero days rest this season, while the Mavs are 7-7 SU & 6-8 ATS. Another pair of teams playing on consecutive days will be the Bobcats and Bucks. The game, played in Milwaukee, will be a battle of wills, as both teams have been good on zero days rest, with the Bucks 8-5 SU & 10-3 ATS and Charlotte 7-7 SU & 10-4 ATS. Finally, in New York, Oklahoma City and Kevin Durant make their only visit hoping to improve on already stellar marks of 19-7 ATS on the road, and 16-6 ATS against the East.
Sunday offers up a plethora of TV action with four games brought to your living room by ABC & ESPN. Tipping if all off is an Eastern Conference showdown between Cleveland and Orlando at 1:00 PM ET. The Cavs will be looking for a third straight win this season over the team that took them out of the playoffs last June, while also continuing to work Antawn Jamison into the rotation. Following that game, the Celtics will be in Denver. The Nuggets knocked off the East’s best team, Cleveland, on the road Thursday, and will put their 23-5 record at home on the line here. In the evening, on ESPN, the Golden State Warriors play host to the Hawks. The Warriors are always one of the better home underdogs around for bettors and have continued their spread covering ways this season in that role with a 9-6 ATS mark. Atlanta has thrived vs. the West this season, going 16-6 SU & 14-8 ATS headed into the weekend. Finally, a late night start finds the Trailblazers hosting the red-hot Jazz. Utah was on a 15-2 SU & 12-2-3 ATS run headed into the weekend and had closed to within 1-1/2 of the Northwest Division lead.
