We have 15 games scheduled for tonight in NBA. I choose the Los Angeles game. I hope to have another winning bet.
Wednesday, April 17 2013 – 10:30 PM ET
(ET is USA East Coast Time)
LOS ANGELES LAKERS – HOUSTON ROCKETS
Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Los Angeles Lakers (44-37, streak W 4) need a win to secure a playoff place. The calendar is really strange as tonight rivals are the Houston Rockets, team that need a win to save their 7th playoff spot. Utah Jazz will play their match 2 hours before the Lakers. As we can read in the NBA official website preview for the Lakers vs Rockets preview, a Jazz loss would give Los Angeles a playoff berth no matter its result, but a Utah victory would force the Lakers (44-37) to knock off Houston to avoid missing the postseason for the first time since 2005.
Houston Rockets (45-36, streak L 1) are stronger than the Lakers, but everyone think they will lose this match. Ot’s a good reason for backing the Rockets!
My bookmaker odds
L.A. Lakers 1.65
L.A. Lakers (-2.5) 1.87
Houston (+2.5) 1.87
Houston (+2.5) @ 1.87
L.A. Lakers – Houston 99-95 OT
No problem, I close my April bets with a positive balance.
