NBA Betting Online Odds for Tuesday’s Lakers Home Game
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
This NBA betting online Tuesday, sports betting sites and fans alike will have but one NBA game to wager on. Luckily enough however, the game will be nationally broadcast which means that bettors across this great land can all tune in to watch the Los Angeles Lakers host the Chicago Bulls. The Lakers have been mildly inconsistent all season long and oftentimes the team finds itself in the news not necessarily for their basketball merits but rather for LaVar Ball’s incessant ability to make outlandish statements. The most recent of which was a backhand comment towards the sitting president refuting the claim that President Trump played a hand in his son’s release from Chinese prison. Never mind the fact that a well-raised son would not be shoplifting in a foreign country, Ball elected to take a jab at one of the most controversial presidents in office, further thrusting the Lakers and Lonzo Ball in particular into the limelight. Let’s take a look at the odds sports betting sites are giving Ball and the Lakers this Tuesday evening.
Chicago Bulls vs. Los Angeles Lakers – Tuesday, November 21st
When: 10:30 pm ET
Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
TV: NBA TV
Stream: NBA League Pass
NBA Betting Online Odds:
Chicago Bulls +6 (-110) 210 ½ (-110) +185
Los Angeles Lakers -6 (-110) 210 ½ (-110) -225
The Chicago Bulls enter this evening’s matchup sporting an extremely disappointing 3-11 record that ranks them 5th in the Central Division and 14th in the Eastern Conference. It’s not the start to the 2017 season that the Bulls were vying for considering that the club has already racked up a 5 game losing streak earlier this year. The most recent NBA betting online loss that Chicago endured came at the hands of the Phoenix Suns 113-105. The Bulls 3 wins of the season have come against the Orlando Magic, the Atlanta Hawks, and the Charlotte Hornets, so it’s safe to say that Chicago isn’t beating any top-ranking teams anytime soon. Los Angeles isn’t exactly what you’d call top-ranking but they are in playoff contention and are pretty heavily favored by the NBA odds sportsbook.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers enter this evening’s contest with a 7-10 record that ranks them 2nd in the Pacific Division and 10th in the Western Conference overall. If Los Angeles can win their next two in a row, they might just be able to slip up to No. 8 in the conference and officially be eligible for a playoff ticket. But if the Lakers are to accomplish that, they’ll need more aggression from their 1st overall pick in last year’s draft. Ball has balled at times and already has two triple-doubles on the season. Ball is averaging 8.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game this season. Considering he’s a rookie, those numbers aren’t all that bad. That said, the NBA betting online community would like to see Ball improve upon his meager 31% shooting percentage.
