With the Los Angeles Lakers set to face the San Antonio Spurs tonight, NBA betting analyst Andy Staples thinks the Lakers will come away with a victory.
Here’s what Staples thinks: “This is a really good team.
This is a team that will be very hard to beat.
They’ve been able to win the past couple of games with this core.
If we can get a lot of shots, and they have some shooting, that’ll help them out.
I think the big thing for them is they’re going to have to guard everyone.”
The Lakers are one of the best teams in the NBA right now.
They are averaging 101.3 points per 100 possessions and are shooting 41.2 percent from the field, while limiting opponents to 46.5 percent shooting from the floor and 42.3 percent from 3-point range.
If the Lakers can take advantage of the Spurs lack of size (4.5 wingspan, 6’7″ wingspan) and length (6’7″, 198 pounds) this team could be the one to take the next step.
The Lakers have been struggling offensively this season.
They have averaged just 87.6 points per game, which is the lowest in the league.
They’re averaging a ridiculous 28.7 turnovers per game and are allowing 100.6 turnovers per 100.0 possessions.
It’s not surprising that they’re the lowest scoring team in the Western Conference.
The Spurs have averaged 100.8 points per contest, which ranks first in the conference.
The Lakers are averaging an abysmal 23.6 offensive rebounds per game.
The biggest question for the Lakers is whether or not they can keep up with the Spurs’ high turnover rate.
This season, the Spurs have scored just 30.5 points per possession and are averaging nearly 60 turnovers per contest.
The best way to stop the Spurs is to keep them on the defensive end of the floor.
If the Lakers do manage to take advantage on offense, it will be because they can score the ball, which they have struggled with recently.
They rank 28th in the NFL in points per play allowed and they are allowing the third-most points per minute of the top 20 teams in scoring.
The only team in NBA history to average 30.0 points per player per possession was the 2000 Denver Nuggets.
If they can get back to scoring the ball more, they could turn this into a very good night for them.
The odds of the Lakers scoring 30 or more points are incredibly high right now, and Staples thinks it’s a realistic bet.
The NBA regular season is just a few weeks away, but betting on the NBA is not a cheap sport.
In addition to NBA games, you can bet on a number of sports, including tennis, football, golf, and more.
