Lakers-Spurs Line Still -3 at Some Sportsbooks

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.

How does that saying go about playing with fire and getting burned? Well, that’s just what the Denver Nuggets are doing in the Western Conference finals against the Los Angeles Lakers. Maybe the Nuggets need to fall behind three games to one in the series since that’s when they play their best. If they want to do that, though, they need to win Game 3 on Tuesday night since no team in the history of the league has overcome a 3-0 series deficit. The Nuggets aren’t going to quit and neither is LeBron and Co. They got a dagger triple from Anthony Davis at the horn to subdue Denver in Game 2 to take a commanding lead in the series.
