Sports Betting Weekend: It's Playoff Time

The NBA regular season comes to an end on Wednesday night, which also means it’s the end of the Hall of Fame career of Kobe Bryant.

Utah has won four in a row straight up against the Lakers (including three this season), while going 4-0 against the spread. The Lakers were the underdog in all four games at online sportsbook Bovada.
