2004 Season NBA Basketball Past Picks

Seattle at Los Angeles

1 unit on Game Total OVER 199.5 -110 (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
While Seattle has played low scoring games for most of the season, they aare allowing 103 points per game and scoring almost 110 in their last five games. I expect this to be an up-tempo game with Chucky Atkins continuing to take up the slack for Kobe. In games in which Seattle attempts 84+ shots over the past three seasons, they have gone OVER 21-6. The Lakers are 8-1 OVER versus good offensive teams (scoring 99+ points/game) and 6-1 OVER when playing against a top-level team (Win Pct. > 70%) this season. Seattle is 54-21 OVER in road games after a division game since 1996 and the Lakers are 38-18 OVER revenging a road loss vs opponent over the last 3 seasons. One star on the OVER here.
