Denver vs. LA Lakers,
05/01/2012 22:30 EDT,
Score: 100 - 104
Point Spread: -5/-107 LA Lakers
Today's winner is Los Angeles over Denver. This is my LV STRIP MOVE GAME OF THE YEAR.
Los Angeles has now won and covered 3 straight over Denver. The Lakers are 11-5 SU their L16 and 6-3 ATS their L9, including a 4-1 ATS mark their L5 when hosting. In Game 1, Andrew Bynum had 10 blocked shots and established a huge force in the paint. The Nuggets don't have that "go-to" guy and certainly are a very different team when playing away from home. Forward, Wilson Chandler is out. Especially without Chandler, Denver just doesn't have the strength up front to challenge Gasol, Ebanks, and Bynum. The big men of the Nuggets were just 11 of 23 shooting in Game 1 while the Lakers big men shot 16 of 27 and owned the boards. They will once again out-rebound Denver badly. All-universe player, Kobe Bryant has averaged 25 points in his 56 career games against the Nuggets, with his highest output coming in the opener when he lit up the scoreboard for 31 points. LA has averaged 102.8 PPG in their 15 contests. Their experience, leadership, depth, and superiority down low will earn them another big win here. The Nuggets are 6-14-1 ATS their L21 games played at the Lakers, 1-3-1 ATS their L5 Conference Quarter Final games, and 2-6 ATS their L8 playoff games played as a 'dog. The Lakers are 5-2 ATS their L7 vs. teams with a SU winning record, 4-1 ATS their L5 Conference Quarter Final games, and 4-1 ATS Their L5 games played at home. Take Los Angeles. Thank you.
