Betting the Los Angeles Lakers against the spread is easy! Let's imagine Los Angeles is a -3.5 home favorite tonight. The number, -3.5, means the Lakers needs to win the game by four points to win your bet. If their opponent who is a +3.5 away underdog either wins the game or loses by three points or fewer, your bet would lose.
Betting the Los Angeles Lakers moneyline means you expect the Lakers will win the game outright. Using the example above, if Los Angeles is a -3.5 point favorite, their moneyline odds would be -155 and their opponent would be +135.
This means you would have to bet $155 on Los Angeles to win $100. If you wanted to bet against the Lakers, you would win $135 if you bet $100 on their opponent.
Another popular bet to make is the Los Angeles Lakers game total. Let's imagine the Lakers are playing tonight and the total is 217.5 points. You can simply bet over 217.5 points or under 217.5 points. So if you think Los Angeles will shoot lights out, you'd need 218 total points scored to win your bet. If you think the Lakers will have a bad night, you'd need both teams to score 217 points or less.
