Two teams headed in opposite directions meet on Thursday night as the Los Angeles Lakers visit the Miami Heat. The Lakers are red-hot having won eight straight games while the Heat are playing their worst basketball of the betting season having lost five straight.

The Lakers are coming off a 101-87 win in Atlanta on Tuesday night.  The Lakers have been playing superb defense of late as they held their fifth straight opponent to 87 points or less. Kobe Bryant had 26 points to lead a Los Angeles team that now looks like the two-time defending champs.  The Lakers are now in the top 10 in the league in both points per game and in fewest points allowed.

Thursday’s game might be looked at as a revenge game since the Heat routed the Lakers 96-80 on Christmas Day but no one really seems to be talking about the angle because of how the two teams are playing.  The Lakers are rolling while the Heat is coming apart.   The Lakers have struggled against the Heat as they are 0-5 ATS against Miami since 2008.

Miami has not only lost five in a row straight up; they are currently on a seven-game losing streak against the point spread.  The Heat continues to have trouble against winning teams. In this five-game losing streak they have fallen to New York, Orlando, San Antonio, Chicago and Portland.

Miami has really been poor at home against the number going 11-20 ATS. Here are more basketball betting stats for Thursday’s game. The Lakers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Lakers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 vs. the Southeast. The Lakers are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 Thursday games. The Heat are 35-14-2 ATS in their last 51 vs. the Pacific. The Heat are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The Heat are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games.

The Under is 4-1 in the Lakers last 5 overall. The Under is 24-9 in the Lakers last 33 vs. the Eastern Conference. The Over is 9-1 in Miami’s last 10 vs. the Western Conference. In this series, the Under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Miami.

NBA Betting May 7, 2021 – Los Angeles Lakers at Portland Trail Blazers

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers will both be playing after the regular season concludes. We just don’t know if they’ll be in the top-six or in the play-in tournament. LA and Portland are two of three teams vying for the final two playoff spots with the club missing out being relegated to the play-in.

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

If the Dallas Mavericks are relegated to the play-in tournament they can lay the blame on one of the worst teams in the Western Conference. The Mavs enter their contest with the Brooklyn Nets having won seven of their last 10 games with the three defeats all coming at the hands of the Sacramento Kings.

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

The new play-in format has the Toronto Raptors in line to potentially compete for a spot in the postseason. That’s good news for a club that has plodded along for most of the campaign. While there are some who detest the play-in the Raps certainly aren’t one of them. They enter the week 2.5 games out of the 10th spot and continue a difficult stretch of games against Western Conference foes with Tuesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a freefall that even their two best players have been unable to get them out of. We all thought they would return to their early season ways once Anthony Davis and LeBron James returned, but that hasn’t happened.

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now. Despite the loss of Jamal Murray, the Nugs are on a roll having won four straight and eight of their last nine games. Their only loss during that span was to the Dubs and a setback to the same club preceded the current run.
