For the Lakers haters out there the NBA odds action in this Western Conference series has been gravy. The upstart #8 Oklahoma City Thunder have pushed the defending NBA betting champion Lakers to the brink so far and making Phil Jackson sweat with their “nothing to lose” attitude. Yet even with two NBA playoff betting victories so far in this series the Thunder still face the very real possibility of elimination from the basketball betting playoffs if they don’t win at home on Friday night.
Nobody in Oklahoma wants to see the franchise’s first trip to the NBA playoff betting action end with a loss on their home court and with any luck it won’t. Led by the leading scorer in the NBA odds action this season (Kevin Durant 30.1 ppg) this team has found a way to scratch and claw its way to two previous victories on their home court and will desperately try and find a way to even the series at 3-3 on April 30th.
Durant has proven through the course the NBA betting regular season and now in the NBA playoff betting action that he can scorer at will against any team or any NBA betting opponent. But Durant is hardly the problem for the Thunder, it’s the rest of the team that hasn’t been able to get the ball in the hoop and scoring has been hard to come by all season, not just the NBA playoff betting action.
The Lakers on the other hand have scoring options at nearly every position on the court and should win the Game 6 basketball betting contest. This squad simply has too much talent to lose to team like the Thunder. Oklahoma City has plays tremendous defense and defense, according to sports betting experts, is what wins championships. But it’s unlikely that no matter how good of defense the Thunder plays that it will be able to shut down Kobe Bryant, Gasol, Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum all on the same night.
However, the interesting thing in this NBA odds series is that the road team has yet to win a game with the hosts wining all give NBA betting matchups so far. The Thunder have already won two at home so why not another?
