NBA Basketball Betting – Lakers at Chicago Bulls
Our Sportsbooks: The Los Angeles Lakers (14-9 SU, 13-8 ATS), with five covering efforts in their last six games, descend upon blizzard-ravaged Chicago on Tuesday night to face off against the Chicago Bulls ( 8-13 SU, 7-14 ATS) in an NBA game scheduled to begin at 8:30 PM ET.
In the Top Sportsbooks NBA basketball betting odds, the Bulls are listed as a one-point favorite, with the total posted at 202 points.
In the HEAD-to-HEAD NBA basketball betting trends:
* LAL have covered four of the last five meetings
* LAL have won six of the last nine meetings SU
* The last eight meetings have gone UNDER the total
* CHI has won and covered four of the last six meetings as the home team
* Four of the last five meetings in Chicago have gone UNDER the total
This Los Angeles team is doing pretty well, with a 14-9 record, which is good for second place in the Pacific Division. The Lakers, in covering five of their last six games, have averaged 112 ppg during that time. Only one team has scored more points than they have on the road. Of course, the major catalyst is Kobe Bryant, who is averaging 27.2 ppg on 45% shooting. there have plenty of rumors that had Bryant going to the Bulls in a trade, but those seem to have died down. Playing with a strained left groin muscle, Bryant racked up 32 points against the Clippers on Sunday. Also:
* LAL have won and covered five of their last six games
* LAL have covered 11 of their last 16 road games
* LAL have won two of their last six road games SU
* LAL have shot 47.1% from the field, fifth in the league
* LAL average 106.4 ppg on the road, second in the league
The Bulls rank last in the NBA with 41% shooting from the field, although it must be said that their marksmanship has picked up over the last three games, hitting 54% against Seattle, 43% against Indiana and 47% in the last game, a five-point win over the Knicks. Chicago has also topped 100 points in each of the last three games. Also:
* CHI is 7-15 ATS in its last 22 games
* CHI has won four of its last six games SU
* CHI is 3-4 ATS as a home favorite
* CHI has played four of its last five home games OVER the total
* CHI shoots 41% from the field, last in the NBA
Chicago is seeking revenge here, as the Lakers humiliated them back on November 18, winning by a 106-78 count. In that game the Lakers had 73 points off the bench. But Luol Deng, who was not available for the Bulls in that one, will be back in the lineup, and although we don’t expect to see a hot-shooting Bulls team, we think that after three days of rest, their intensity will show up on the defensive end, especially as Ben Wallace tries to take 19-year-old Andrew Bynum to school. Bryant has averaged “only” 24.6 ppg in his career against Chicago, and one must keep an eye on that groin injury (not literally) to see if it bothers him after just a day off. We like the Bulls, the one-point favorite in the Top Sportsbooks NBA basketball betting odds, but we also have to recognize the recent totals history of these teams. Not only have the last eight meetings all gone under the total, but in the last six meetings combined, only one team has reached the 100-mark. So defense has dominated.
