We brought in a winner from our NBA top betting play last night as the New Jersey Nets fought until the very end to cover the +9 points against the LA Lakers. We liked the Nets new attitude following the acquisition of Gerald Wallace who is clicking well with a good point guard in Deron Wiliams. NBA players love playing with point guards who make them look good. That’s why we have been backing this Nets team because you are starting to see some of their parts starting to work well around Deron Williams. The Nets point guard is a free agent in the offseason so you will get the best from Williams until the very end and he has blended well with Wallace on the court. Out best NBA pick from Wednesday comes from the pro basketball ball game from the battle of LA as the Lakers and Clippers face off. The LA’s will tip off from Staples Center in Los Angeles on the Clippers court and its ESPN providing the live national television telecast. Our NBA pick will be playing on the LA Clippers -3 points against the LA Lakers. The pointspread used from our top NBA play comes courtesy of Top Bet sportsbook.
The LA Clippers opened up in the betting as a -3 point favorite with the over under at 188 points. Early money from the NBA bettors has not moved the line as the Clippers still are favored by -3 points and total remains at 188 points. If you bet the LA Clippers on the money line the return is -155 odds. Those who think the LA Lakers can defeat the LA Clippers straight up tonight you will earn +135 odds for your wager on the money line.
The LA Clippers have been red hot as the club has now won six straight games. Offensively the Clippers have been outstanding as the team is averaging 99 points and 50 1/2 % shooting from the field over their past five games. This is a huge circle game for the LA Clippers as they have a shot at winning the season series with the LA Lakers and they will benefit from a day of rest heading into tonight’s game. This is very similar spot to their meeting with the Lakers on January 14th in their 102-94 win as the Clippers were rested and the LA Lakers were playing the back end of a back to back.
The LA Lakers have not been good to their backers as they have failed to cover a pointspread in their past seven games. They were listless in the second half last night as they blew a big lead against the Nets in the fourth quarter and had to rally for a four point win. Andrew Bynum did not play last night and is questionable tonight with a sprained right ankle. It is tough for the Lakers to match the energy of the Clippers tonight as Chris Paul will look to take over in the fourth quarter. Take the hot LA Clippers tonight laying the short price and before wagering read online sportsbook reviews.
