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

Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs (-13.5, 214)

The Los Angeles Lakers are dragging along with a four-game losing skid and things don’t figure to get better when they face the angry San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday. San Antonio had won eight of nine games before succumbing to the lowly New Orleans Hornets on Monday, a loss that makes for bad timing for Los Angeles to show up in town. The Lakers are just 5-11 on the road and the Spurs are 14-2 at home.

San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich succinctly described the loss to the Hornets this way: “They did a great job at both ends of the court. They just whipped us.” The Spurs committed 19 turnovers in the sloppy, uncharacteristic effort. Los Angeles will again be without center Dwight Howard (shoulder) and forwards Pau Gasol (concussion) and Jordan Hill (hip). The shorthanded Lakers played well early in Tuesday’s 125-112 loss to the Houston Rockets before wilting over the final 17 minutes. “We could offer up a number of excuses,” said point guard Steve Nash, “but what is troubling is when we were healthy, we weren’t stopping people, either.”

TV: 8 p.m. ET, ESPN, Time Warner Cable SportsNet (Los Angeles), KENS (San Antonio)

ABOUT THE LAKERS (15-19, 13-20-1 ATS): L.A. is 1-9 against the spread as an underdog this year after failing to cover at Houston last night as an 8-point dog. That was the biggest underdog line the Lakers had seen all season until tonight where they're a 13.5-point dog. Los Angeles doesn’t yet know long it will be without Howard, who matched his career-high with 26 rebounds in Sunday’s loss to the Denver Nuggets before the severity of his shoulder injury was discovered the next day. Rookie Robert Sacre started in his place against Houston and had 10 points and four blocked shots but grabbed just three rebounds. Forward Metta World Peace scored a season-high 24 points against the Rockets and is miffed over the team’s troubles. “I thought we had the better team,” World Peace said while comparing his injury riddled team with the Rockets. “We definitely had the better team, but every night we have the better team and it’s just not translating to wins.” Kobe Bryant scored 20 points to end a streak of 17 consecutive games with 27 or more points.

ABOUT THE SPURS (27-10, 22-14-1 ATS): San Antonio has won 10 consecutive home games dating back to Nov. 19 when they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs defeated the Lakers 84-82 on Nov. 11 in Los Angeles when guard Danny Green hit the game-winning 3-point basket with 9.3 seconds remaining. Green has struggled of late and missed all five of his shots while going scoreless in the loss to New Orleans. Green has reached double digits just once in the last six games. Veteran guard Manu Ginobili has averaged 20 points and made 56.5 percent of his field-goal attempts over the past two games to raise his season average to 12.7.

TRENDS:

* Lakers are 1-9 ATS as an underdog this season
* Favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Under is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings in San Antonio.
* Under is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
* Road team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. San Antonio has won the last three regular-season meetings with the Lakers.

2. The Spurs are 17-4 when forcing 15 or more turnovers.

3. Gasol will be re-examined Thursday in hopes of determining a return date. He suffered the concussion on Sunday

NBA betting: Toughest and easiest schedules prior to the All-Star break
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Taking a given team’s schedule into consideration is a vital aspect of sports handicapping.

The NBA All-Star game is just over a month away, so we thought it would be beneficial to examine which teams have the easiest and toughest schedules prior to the break beginning Feb. 15.

Easiest schedules

Denver Nuggets (20-16 SU, 22-14 ATS)

The Nuggets are entering a friendly portion of their schedule Wednesday when they host the Magic. Denver plays 12 of its next 14 games at home and has covered in three of its last four games overall. This is important to bettors because the Nuggets boast an impressive 10-3 ATS mark at the Pepsi Center.

Philadelphia 76ers (15-21 SU, 15-21 ATS)

NBA schedule-makers saddled the Sixers with a daunting road schedule early in the season, but now Philly enjoys a stretch where it plays 12 of its next 15 games at the friendly confines of the Wells Fargo Center against relatively weak opposition. The Sixers play the Raptors and Bucks twice in that span and will also have the chance to beat up on the Magic, Bobcats, Wizards and Hornets prior to the break.

Atlanta Hawks (20-13 SU, 13-19-1 ATS)

Atlanta’s 20-13 SU record hasn’t translated into ATS success (13-19-1) this season, but the Hawks will have the opportunity to improve on that mark in coming weeks. Atlanta only plays one back-to-back set (Brooklyn, San Antonio) and has good balance to its schedule with no more than two consecutive games on the road or at home prior to the break. The Hawks have been a better road bet (8-8 ATS) than at Philips Arena (5-11-1).


Toughest schedules

Los Angeles Clippers (27-8 SU, 22-13 ATS)

The Clippers have an impressive 15-5 home ATS mark but are slightly under .500 ATS on the road (7-8). Los Angeles will be road warriors prior to the All-Star break, playing 14 of its next 20 away from La La Land. The Clippers embark on a season-high eight-game road swing predominantly against Eastern foes beginning in Minnesota on Jan. 30.

Houston Rockets (21-14 SU, 21-13-1 ATS)

The Rockets boast one of the top offenses in the Association thanks to the addition of James Harden, but they’ll be tested with a vigorous schedule in the next month or so. Houston hits the road for 13 of its next 20 games, including stops in tough venues such as Los Angeles, Golden State, Utah, Boston and Indiana. The Rockets are the hottest bet in the league, covering in 11 of their last 12 games.

Oklahoma City Thunder (26-8 SU, 20-13-1 ATS)

It’s no secret the Thunder have some of the top talent in the league and are one of the better bets this season. But Oklahoma City begins a stretch where it plays nine of its next 10 away from home beginning Friday in Los Angeles. The Thunder will play three times at the Staples Center (twice vs. the Lakers, once vs. the Clippers) during that stretch.

*All stats prior to action on Jan. 9.

NBA on TNT: Doubleheader odds and preview
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New York Knicks at Indiana Pacers (-4.5, OFF)

The New York Knicks will be without suspended star Carmelo Anthony when they try to avoid a second consecutive loss - and their fourth defeat in six games - in a road game against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday. The NBA handed Anthony a one-game suspension Wednesday for his attempts to confront Boston's Kevin Garnett after the Knicks' home loss to the Celtics on Monday. Anthony leads the team and ranks second in the league with 29 points per game.

Facing the red-hot Pacers would have been enough of a challenge with Anthony in the lineup. Indiana has won two straight and 11 of 14, including an 87-77 home win over Miami on Tuesday. It's the second of four meetings this season and the first in Indiana. The Knicks won 88-76 on Nov. 18 at Madison Square Garden behind a game-high 26 points from Anthony. The Knicks have not lost a season series to the Pacers since they were swept in four games in the 2007-08 campaign.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, TNT, MSG (New York)

ABOUT THE KNICKS (23-11): Anthony's absence adds to an already depleted roster with point guard Raymond Felton (broken finger) and forward Rasheed Wallace (foot) out. The Knicks will need J.R. Smith (16.9 points, 5.2 rebounds) to pick up some of the scoring slack along with the frontcourt duo of Tyson Chandler (12.8 points, 10.5 rebounds) and Amar'e Stoudemire (10 points).

ABOUT THE PACERS (21-14): Indiana is one of the top defensive teams in the league, and it has been terrific at that end during its recent hot streak. The Pacers' frontcourt leads the way at the offensive end with David West (16.7 points, eight rebounds) and Paul George (16.7 points, 7.4 rebounds) tied for the team scoring lead. Point guard George Hill (14.7 points, five assists) recently returned from a groin injury that kept him out three games, but he had to leave against the Heat because of dehydration.

TRENDS:

* Knicks are 4-0 ATS in their last four Thursday games.
* Knicks are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Pacers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games vs. a team with a winning SU record.
* Knicks are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Knicks are 17-2 when holding opponents under 100 points and 10-0 when allowing less than 90 points.

2. The Pacers have won eight straight home games dating to Dec. 7 against Denver. They are 13-3 at home this season and 47-18 in their last 65 regular-season games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

3. New York, which hosts Chicago on Friday, is 5-2 on the front end of back-to-back sets this season.



Miami Heat at Portland Trail Blazers (3.5, 196)

The Miami Heat strive to make their second contest of a six-game road trip more fun than the first when they visit the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday. Miami scored a season-low 77 points during Tuesday’s 10-point loss to the Indiana Pacers, shooting just 41.2 percent from the field. Portland is a robust 12-4 at home – including eight straight victories – and is attempting to stretch its overall winning streak to four games.

The Trail Blazers have won 11 of their last 14 games after dispatching of the Orlando Magic on Monday. Portland’s home winning streak is its longest since claiming 12 straight during the 2008-09 campaign. The Trail Blazers are in third place in the Northwest Division. Miami has the best record in the Eastern Conference but has lost four of its last seven games. Two of the victories during the stretch came in overtime and the other was against the lowly Washington Wizards. The Heat are 7-7 on the road.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT, Sun Sports (Miami)

ABOUT THE HEAT (23-10): Forward LeBron James and guard Dwyane Wade are accustomed to having strong performances against the Trail Blazers. James is averaging 30.1 points, 9.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists in 17 career games against Portland and is averaging 38.5 points over the last four contests. Wade is averaging 27 points in 17 career outings against the Trail Blazers and has averaged 35 over the last three meetings. James has scored 20 or more in all 33 games, the second-best such streak to start a season behind George Gervin, who did it in the first 45 games of the 1981-82 season.

ABOUT THE TRAIL BLAZERS (19-15): Portland’s victory over Orlando featured four players recording double-doubles. Forward LaMarcus Aldridge had 27 points and 10 rebounds, center J.J. Hickson had 20 points and 15 rebounds for his 20th double-double of the season, point guard Damian Lillard had 18 points and 10 assists and forward Nicolas Batum had 16 points and 10 assists. The last time the Trail Blazers had that occur was back in the 1997-98 campaign when Brian Grant, Isaiah Rider, Damon Stoudamire and Rasheed Wallace all had double-doubles in a game against the Phoenix Suns. Guard Wesley Matthews has scored 20 or more points in each of the past three games, averaging 23.7 points during the stretch while making 14 of 22 3-pointers.

TRENDS:

* Heat are 0-4 ATS in their last four road games.
* Under is 4-0 in Heat last four vs. NBA Northwest.
* Trail Blazers are 6-0 ATS in their last six games vs. a team with a winning SU record.
* Over is 7-0 in Trail Blazers’ last sene vs. a team with a winning SU record.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Miami has won its last three visits to Portland.

2. The Trail Blazers are 10-2 in games decided by six or fewer points.

3. The Heat signed F Jarvis Varnado to a 10-day contract on Wednesday. Varnado played in five games for the Boston Celtics earlier this season.]
