Lakers News: Oddsmakers Still Believe Lakers Will Make Playoffs

lakersIn this roller coaster of a season for Laker fans, Vegas oddsmakers still believe the Lakers will make the playoffs. According to the online sports gambling site SportsBook.com, the Lakers are currently -300 to miss them.

If you place a $130 bet on the Lakers to be in the top eight by season’s end, you would make $100. If you don’t think the Lakers will make the playoffs, you would need to bet $300 to win $100.

However, any championship aspirations Laker fans might have, don’t translate to the feelings by the oddsmakers. The Lakers have 25/1 odds of winning the championship currently, which is far higher odds than the 10/1 odds the Lakers had in January. If you think the Lakers will win their 17th championship and bet $100 dollars on that, you would make $2,500 dollars.

The Lakers, sitting at 25-29 and 3.5 games back of the eighth seed, play host to the Boston Celtics tonight at Staples Center.
