Online NBA Pacific Betting

For years the NBA’s Pacific Division was ruled by Kobe Bryant and the L.A Lakers, but after back-to-back championships in 2009 and 2010, the Lakers decline began. L.A has had a real rough go of it during the final few years of Bryant’s career, but now he’s retired and his massive contract is off the books. L.A has the money to skip the rebuilding process and simply reload, so it will be interesting to see how this franchise is built in the coming years. [+]

Right now, this division is all about the Warriors and their record-breaking dominance in the league. Golden State is now the most popular online NBA Pacific betting team to back and they rewarded those bettors in the 2015-16 regular season with the league’s best against the spread (ATS) record at 45-35-2.

NBA Pacific Betting Lines

NBA Pacific betting lines don’t always get the attention they deserve because this division is full of the west coast teams that play the bulk of their games late at night. There is always an “east coast bias” in professional sports, but to have success with your NBA betting, make sure you keep tabs on these point spreads below.

How To Bet On NBA Pacific Division

With Steph Curry and Klay Thompson running the show for the Warriors , Golden State is likely going to be one of the top teams to bet on in this division for years to come.

Those two superstars can drain the 3-point shot like nobody else in this league and management has built a spectacular supporting cast around them. The fact that they could finish the 15-16 season with the best ATS record in the league despite being tagged with numerous double-digit spreads to cover as favourites was remarkable. However, it’s unlikely the Warriors can keep up this pace in the coming years and savvy bettors will need to decide when the spreads get to high and betting against the Warriors often is the better strategy.

The rest of this division (L.A Lakers, L.A Clippers, Phoenix, Sacramento) are currently in various stages of chaos with their roster, coaching staff, management, or all three. The Clippers are the best of the bunch, but bettors have a tough time backing this team that has been functionally dysfunctional in recent years.

For a myriad of reasons the team to watch going forward will be the Lakers. With Kobe now gone, the Lakers can start to really put their rebuilding/reloading plan into motion and become a championship contender again. It will likely take some time, but the Lakers organization will still have their valuable betting spots like when they beat Golden State outright as 17-point home underdogs in 15-16.
