Who Will Sports Betting Fans Pick To Win In Celtics Vs Lakers?

Sports betting fans may want to spend some time considering who will come out on top of this weekend’s NBA clash between the Boston Celtics and the LA Lakers.

With Sunday’s (January 30th) fixture at the Staples Center being the first time the teams have faced each other since the Lakers beat the Celtics four games to three to win the 2010 NBA championship, tensions could well be running high.

And while last year’s championship series proved to be a tight encounter, sports betting fans may also find Sunday’s game a close one to call, as both teams currently top their respective divisions.

However the Celtics have a slightly better record than the Lakers having won 34 of their 44 games, including Thursday’s 88-78 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

“It’s a huge game and with them coming back here, they are going to be angry,” Lakers center Andrew Bynum states, adding that the game is “going to be tough and it’s going to mean a lot”.

Whichever team comes out on top, however, their opponents will quickly get the chance for revenge, as the Lakers visit Celtics’ TD Garden on February 10th.

Canada Sports Betting Fans To Wager On Canucks Overcoming Stars?

Sports betting fans in Canada may be interested in placing a wager on the Vancouver Canucks beating the Dallas Stars as the two NHL teams clash at the American Airlines Center tonight (January 24th).

A victory for the Canucks would represent a turnaround from their 4-3 shootout loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday, a defeat that coach Alain Vigneau claims “is going to make us a better team”.

Indeed, Canada sports betting fans may also be interested to note that the Stars lost 7-4 to the Flames on Friday, putting their previous run of five consecutive victories to an end.

However, while the Canucks came out on top in the game against the Stars on New Year’s Eve, repeating their success could be a tough ask as they have a number of players out injured.

Sports betting fans to wager on Dallas Mavericks overcoming losing streak?

Despite the Dallas Mavericks losing their last six games, sports betting fans may want to place a wager on the basketball team turning their poor run of form around when they take on the Los Angeles Lakers tonight (January 19th).

However, a failure to beat the reigning NBA champions will see the Mavericks continue on their worst streak for nearly 12 years, with February 1999 the last time they lost seven successive matches.

“Our competitive level has to come up, it is as simple as that,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle states.

And while star player Dirk Nowitzki has recently returned from injury, CBS Sports reports that the Mavericks “are finding it just as hard to post a victory” since the German’s comeback.

The broadcaster stated that he has scored an average of 16.5 points since his return to the line-up, down from the 24.1 he registered before his period on the sidelines.

Sports betting fans may be interested to note that the LA Lakers have only lost two of the ten games played so far this month, with their most recent victory seeing them beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-94.
