My betting tips for Utah vs LA Lakers

Usually I bet on football and especially on the English Premier League matches, but I also love to bet on basketball games from NBA. In today’s betting coupon we have a match that I think are sufficiently secure. I’m talking about the match between Utah and the LA Lakers. The bookmakers favored the hosts from Salt Lake City as Bet365 offers odds of 1.9 for a Lakers win with 3.5 points in hand.

If this match had been played a week earlier I am sure that the odds would be reversed and the Lakers should be placed in the role of the favorite. But the bad start for the Californians, who started with three straight losses changed the bookmakers’ expectations.

Lakers big weakness is the attack, which is very strange since we can find names such like Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol in the squad. However, they played pretty well in the last match when Lakers beat Detroit with more than 20 points margin. So I think that the attack starts to get better for the team from LA.

Utah is not in good form with a win and three loses so far. The victory came against one of the weakest teams in the league – Sacramento. In their other three matches the Mormons couldn’t do much and lost from New Orleans, San Antonio and Memphis. To me this is a clear sign that it is unlikely for Utah to beat the stars from Los Angelis, which will be extremely motivated to prove that they can play together.

So, I find it strange that the bookies have given the advantage to the Lakers and I think I can take this in my bets.
