The Lakers-Spurs line had dropped to -2.5 in favor of San Antonio at 90 percent of online sportsbooks.  Diamond Sports was still offering the Lakers at +3 as of late Sunday

In this series, the Spurs have won and covered the last 3.  The Lakers are 7-1 Against The Spread in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning home record but are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 vs. the NBA Southwest. 

San Antonio is 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.  They are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600.

"We're playing much more aggressive basketball," said Kobe Bryant, who led Los Angeles on Friday with 27 points. "We're attacking. We're getting after it at both ends. That's a big difference."

The Lakers have won three straight road games, but this contest begins a daunting four-game trip over seven days. Los Angeles will also travel to Atlanta, Miami and Dallas -- each of the four opponents on the trip owns one of the league's 10 best records.

The Bulls-Heat line was listed at Miami -5 across the board.  Chicago has won the last two in this series, both on the road.  7 of the last 8 in this series were won on the road.  The Heat are just 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points.

Oklahoma City was a -5.5 favorite hosting the Phoenix Suns.   The home team has won 4 of the last 5 in this series.   Here is something very important to consider:  The Suns have not lost by more than the current spread over the last 10 games in this series. 

Golden State was a +7 underdog in Philadelphia.

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Not much has gone right for Washington State this season, including three losses in four PAC-12 contests. While the Cougars were able to bring down UCLA earlier in the year, Washington State has dropped its other three conference games by an average of 14 points apiece. Although Washington State will have an opportunity to protect its home floor in Thursday night’s PAC-12 action, they’ll be facing off against an Oregon Ducks team with two victories in three attempts on the road this season.

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

Just last season the Portland Trail Blazers won 53 games and reached the Western Conference final. They are currently on pace to win 33 games and miss the postseason for the first time in seven years. There still is plenty of basketball left with the Blazers hitting the midway point and snatching a victory last time out. But the West is stacked and the Houston Rockets are one of the teams at the top of the standings. Led by NBA scoring leader James Harden, Houston is one of five times within three games of each other in the congested West race and look to get back in the win column after dropping Tuesday’s game in Memphis.
