The NBA regular season is well on its way and the Brooklyn Nets have established themselves as one of the best teams in the NBA east. Meanwhile, a team that was supposed to be very good but has not been living up to their expectations has been the LA Lakers.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have been plagued by injury and lousy play so far this season. Many sports betting fans doubt their chances of making the playoffs let alone winning a championship. Kobe Bryant has not been playing like his usual self, nor has super star Steve Nash lived up to his expectation. Bryant has been leading the team with 27 points per game, but their 7-16 record on the road does not have their chances looking good come tonight’s game, especially missing Dwight Howard on the injured list.
The Nets have been having a great season sitting at a 28-19 record. At home they are almost unstoppable at 18-8 and Brooks Lopez has been excellent thus far. In their last ten games they are 6-4 and have won their last game.
This game should be an easy choice for many online sports books and online betting sites. The Nets will be favored to win this game but not by much. Many sports books have them listed as even with no over/under yet set.
