Raptors vs. Lakers NBA Pick / Gambling Preview (Mar. 9)

NBA Betting – Lakers look to snap winless skid against Raptors

NBA betting players are wondering what is wrong with the Los Angeles Lakers, as the defending world champions have lost three in a row, all on the road. However, they’ll return home to the Staples Center on Tuesday to host Toronto, who have also been struggling as of late, but they have their star back now.


Raptors vs Lakers odds – Tuesday, March 9, 10:30 PM ET

The Raptors (32-29) got Chris Bosh back after the All-Star missed six games with a sprained ankle and a stomach virus, but it wasn’t enough in a 114-101 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. Bosh had 12 points and 12 rebounds in 33 minutes of action, but he failed to get to the foul line even once, which is a sign that he’s still not 100%. Jarrett Jack had 20 points and nine assists for the Raptors, who shot 51.2% from the field, but they allowed the 76ers to shot 55.6%. The Raptors’ bench did their job, outscoring the Philadelphia reserves 39-21, but the starters struggled on the defensive end of the floor, and if they’re going to improve their sportsbook odds (sportsbook reviews), they need to step up on defense.

The Lakers (46-18) fell 96-94 at Orlando for their third straight loss, and they got 34 points from Kobe Bryant, but he went 12-of-30 as the Lakers shot 37.5% from the field as a team. Sports Betting at the SportsbookPau Gasol had 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers, who had 13 fewer trips to the foul line and they were outrebounded 50-39. The Lakers had just seven turnovers to Orlando’s 19, but when you shoot that badly, there’s no way you’re going to win against a team like the Magic, even if you’re the Lakers.

Los Angeles will be the sportsbook favorites in this contest at home, as the Lakers are 29-5 at the Staples Center this season. The Raptors have lost seven in a row in Los Angeles, and four of their last five overall against the Lakers, who will be out to avenge a 106-105 loss in Toronto on January 24th in their last meeting with the Raptors. Toronto is 10-19 on the road this year, and this kicks off a four-game Western road swing for the Raptors, and they may conserve some energy for more likely wins at Golden State and Sacramento over the next few days. The Lakers were frustrated in Orlando and they were testy, especially Bryant, who was involved in a couple of shoving matches with the Magic’s Matt Barnes, and they’re returning home after a tough stint away from the Staples Center. It really doesn’t look good for Toronto on Tuesday night.
