Best and worst NBA non-conference bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The NBA title may rest with the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference but not even LeBron & Co. can overcome the Western Conference’s dominance in the NBA.

Heading into Thursday, the West owns a 120-81 SU record against the East and has translated that into a 116-81-3 ATS mark, covering in almost 58 percent of non-conference meetings this season.

Here’s a look at the best and worst bets when going up against the alternate conference:

Best non-conference bets

Golden State Warriors (13-2 SU, 12-3 ATS vs. Eastern Conference)

The Warriors have been one of the bigger surprises of the first chunk of the schedule, posting a 20-11-1 ATS mark out of the gates. A good portion of those profits have come versus Eastern Conference opposition, including a seven-game road swing on the right side of the county in which Golden State finished 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in mid December.

Houston Rockets (12-2 SU, 12-2 ATS vs. Eastern Conference)

Houston should think about relocating to the East with the way its dealt with non-conference foes. The Rockets, who are just 6-12 SU in the West, have been money in the bank versus teams from the East. It helps that the majority of those games versus the East came inside the Toyota Center. Houston’s run-and-gun style has also led to an 8-6 over/under count in those non-conference competitions.

San Antonio Spurs (12-2 SU, 12-2 ATS vs. Eastern Conference)

The Spurs added to their sterling non-conference record with a seven-point win over Milwaukee Wednesday. San Antonio is currently on a stretch of four straight games versus Eastern Conference opponents, winning SU and ATS over the Nets and Bucks before visiting New York Thursday and hosting Philadelphia Saturday. The Spurs are scoring an average of 108.7 points versus Eastern foes – almost five points more than against Western teams.


Worst non-conference bets

Chicago Bulls (4-8 SU, 2-10 ATS vs. Western Conference)

The Bulls have lost three in a row to Western Conference teams, most recently falling SU and ATS to Houston on Christmas Day. Chicago’s dreaded “Circus Trip” to start the season played a hand in this terrible record. The Bulls won just one game SU and ATS in four Western Conference stops back in November and their only paydays came versus Phoenix and Dallas.

Charlotte Bobcats (2-14 SU, 4-11 ATS vs. Western Conference)

No matter what conference the Bobcats take on, they’re a terrible bet. Charlotte has been bullied by Western Conference opponents in the first part of the season, most recently going 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS on a Western road trip that took the Bobcats to Los Angeles, Phoenix, Golden State and Denver. Charlotte did deliver for backers in defeat to New Orleans last weekend, just covering in a 98-95 loss as a 3.5-point underdog.

Milwaukee Bucks (2-7 SU, 1-8 ATS vs. Western Conference)

The Bucks haven’t met up with many Western Conference foes but when they have, it’s been bad for backers. Milwaukee fell to its current record with a SU and ATS loss to San Antonio Wednesday and takes on Houston, one of the best West-versus-East bets, at home Friday. The Bucks are averaging just under 94 points per game versus Western opposition, compared to 97.3 versus conference competition.

Lakers at Clippers: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Los Angeles Clippers at Los Angeles Lakers (-4.5, 205.5)

The battle of Los Angeles has a different feel with the Clippers possessing the second-best record in the Western Conference and the Lakers floundering below .500. The teams meet Friday at the Staples Center – the Clippers are the “home” team – with the Lakers aiming to cut into their nine-game deficit to the Pacific Division-leading Clippers. The Lakers lost to the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday while the Clippers have dropped two straight following a franchise-record 17-game winning streak.

The Lakers have their worst record after 31 games since a 12-19 start during the 2002-03 season. If the season ended today, they would miss the playoffs. “It’s frustrating,” point guard Steve Nash said. “We’re in a tough position and we really have a lot of ground to make up. We’re not finding the answers right now. So many situations just seem new, and I think we’re struggling to find that little bit of connectivity that makes a team a team.” The Clippers have lost their last two games by a combined 35 points and set season lows for shooting percentage in both contests – 38.5 percent against Denver on Tuesday and 36.4 percent against Golden State on Wednesday.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, ESPN, Time Warner Cable SportsNet (Lakers), Prime Ticket (Clippers)

ABOUT THE LAKERS (15-16): A recent move to small forward hasn’t curtailed the effectiveness of Kobe Bryant, who scored 36 points in the loss to the 76ers. Bryant has scored 30 or more points in 13 of the past 15 games but is becoming increasingly frustrated over Los Angeles’ inability to put together a long winning stretch. “We were just stuck in the mud,” Bryant said after the loss to Philadelphia. “As individuals, we all have to figure out how to get ourselves ready each and every game to have a high-level game. That’s a big thing when you’re starting to age. It’s tough and it takes a lot of commitment.” Bryant scored 40 points when the Lakers lost to the Clippers on Nov. 2.

ABOUT THE CLIPPERS (25-8): Backup guard Jamal Crawford had 24 points in the loss to Golden State for his 13th 20-point outing of the season. The performance was impressive considering Crawford injured his left foot one night earlier against Denver. “It’s a sprained foot, close to the ankle, too,” Crawford said. “It limits you a lot, that’s for sure.” Forward Blake Griffin is struggling and has averaged just 9.7 points over the last three games. Griffin has just one double-double in his last six outings.

TRENDS:

* Clippers are 8-1 ATS in their last nine home games.
* Over is 6-0 in the last six meetings.
* Lakers are 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings in Los Angeles.
* Over is 4-1 in Lakers’ last five road games.
