Christmas Day may feature presents, Christmas trees, and family quality time. But it also features an electrifying game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Watch Kobe and LeBron go head to head in this top game of the month. The sports odds for the Cavs have them in their fourth and last match on the road for this trip, and the Lakers are holding their home ground for the second game in a row.
Last NBA betting season, the two teams faced each other twice and LA blew the Cavs out of the water both times. The first time, Lakers won 101-91. The second time, 105-88.
So yes, LeBron is a star; one of the best around. Yes, the Cavs have a possibly powerful weapon in Shaq (seeing how he’s on the decline now, but who knows). But LA has them outmatched on offense. On defense, the Cavs are just one place above the Lakers in the basketball betting league, but that’s not enough to secure a win and keep the Lakers offense at bay. Unless Shaq reawakens and works together with LeBron and the rest of the Cavs, expect Kobe and the Lakers to get yet another win at home, and expect the sports odds to favor the Lakers substantially.
