Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The 2017 online betting NBA season continues this evening with a flurry of matchups for players to take a swing at. There will be a total of 10 matchups this evening, so there’s no question that it’s a perfect opportunity to line up some 8 team parlay odd bets. Without a doubt, one of the most high-profile matchups of the night has to be the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors West Coast pairing. Let’s take a look at what kind of odds Lonzo Ball & Co. will be facing this evening.

Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers enter this evening’s matchup sporting a disappointing 10-17 record. After that weak performance, Los Angeles finds themselves ranked 3rd in the Pacific Division and 11th in the Western Conference overall. The Lakers find themselves in the middle in the pack. And although Los Angeles sports a losing record, it’s still feasible for LA to make the playoff cut. Granted, the Lakers will need to raise the level of their play or at least find some consistency for the rest of the season. Los Angeles enters this evening’s matchup riding a two game online betting NBA losing streak after losing consecutive matches to the Cavaliers and the Knicks.
All season long the talk around the Lakes has revolved around Lonzo Ball. All things considered, this has more to do with his loud-mouthed father than anything the league’s most notable rook is doing. But regardless, Lonzo finds himself at the forefront of the NBA discussion week in and week out. So far, we haven’t really seen anything out of Ball that merits the type of hype the kid brings to the table; Ball is averaging 9.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 7.2 assists. Lastly, with Kyle Kuzma, another rookie, leading the team in points, one has to wonder whether or not bettors should stop paying attention to Ball.
Golden State Warriors
There’s no need to clarify that the Warriors are one of the best teams in the NBA as their 23-6 record makes that notion unquestionable. Furthermore, that 23-6 record ranks the Warriors 1st in the Pacific Division and 2nd in the Western Conference. At the present time, the 24-4 Houston Rockets lead the West. Undoubtedly, it is surprising to see the Warriors sitting at the No. 2 spot. However, no one is complaining as the added drama only makes this season more entertaining. The Warriors enter this evening’s matchup riding an 8-game win streak. NBA sportsbooks have yet to make up their mind for this West Coast matchup. Nevertheless, bettors can expect them to heavily favor the Warriors once they do.
Stephen Curry will be out for this evening’s Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors matchup. Without Curry’s contributions this evening, the Warriors will be turning to Kevin Durant to carry the payload. Durant is currently averaging 26.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5.3 assists per matchup. Additionally, Durant will likely turn to Klay Thompson for some help on the court this evening. Thompson is currently putting up 20.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.
