How To Bet On Lakers Bobcats – Lakers Will Have No Excuses When They Face Bobcats Friday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/6/2013 6:27:29 PM

The Los Angeles Lakers have had excuses for many of their online sports betting losses so far this season. When they reach North Carolina for a game against the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday, there will be no excuse for not getting it done. The Lakers have banded together and are playing well during a seven-game road trip, winning three-straight since opening the run with a loss at Phoenix. However, Los Angeles still has 3.5 games between itself and the eighth-place Portland Trail Blazers for that final playoff spot, and time continues to tick off the clock.

The Bobcats should have no business going up against a team as talented as the Lakers, especially with Metta World Peace back and Dwight Howard potentially returning to the lineup. Charlotte has just six wins in 24 home games so far this season, and it this point the franchise probably prefers to lose and increase its chances at a No. 1 draft pick.

The majority of the Lakers’ struggles this season have come on the road where they are just 8-16, but they have played well to open this trip and seem to be coming together as a team. A big part of that has been the play of Kobe Bryant, who continues to work as a facilitator for his team rather than jacking up every look that he gets. That has allowed Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard to get more work in the post, where they have been able to thrive once they get in to a rhythm. Steve Nash has been the glue that keeps it together from the point, and will need to make sure Los Angeles continues to go to its biggest strength, which is its size in the paint.

The Bobcats will likely look to add a center this offseason through either the draft or free agency, as they rank just 24th in the NBA in rebounding and have been beaten up in the paint all season. Charlotte has also been exposed at the defensive end of the floor where they don’t have that physical presence in the middle to work around, a big reason they rank 28th in the NBA in points allowed. Kemba Walker has been one of the few bright spots with a team-high 17.8 points per game and 5.6 assists, but will need more talent around him to work with in order to reach his potential in the coming sports betting years.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Without many scoring threats other than Walker and a defense that is awful even with their star point guard on the floor, the Bobcats aren’t expected to win many more games this year and that is likely fine with management. The Lakers on the other hand simply cannot afford to lose many more games if they want to make the playoffs, and there will be no excuse for coming up short against the Bobcats in a game they must win.
