First off, the LA Lakers is simply the better team in this current finals match up.  Even in the regular season, NBA betting odds makers pick the Lakers as the favorite team, which all NBA betting has taken notice of.  Compared to Boston's 50-32 win – loss regular season record, the Lakers sailed to a 57-25 best record in the much tougher Western conference.  The Lakers have beaten Oklahoma City in the first round then moved up to beat the Utah Jazz in the conference semi-finals.  They faced Steve Nash's Phoenix Suns in the conference finals and beat them with a 4-2 standing. 


Looking at both teams' current lineup, the LA Lakers still has the advantage in the sports books.  With a formidable frontline of Andrew Bynum, Pao Gasol and Lamad Odom against an aging Kevin Garnett, Kendrick Perkins and an ancient Rasheed Wallace; it wouldn't be surprising if people bet on the Los Angeles Lakers. 


It should also be noted that the first game is played at the Staples Center.  Another heavy advantage right there.  With a packed arena of screaming Hollywood celebrities and fans alike, it is a definite factor in boosting the team's morale, putting another notch in favor of the Lakers. 


Lastly, the Lakers have Kobe Bryant.  He is currently the best player in this finals matchup and arguably the best player in the league.  He came into the playoffs with a 27 point season average.  Coming into the finals, he averaged 29.4 points.  He is the go to guy of his team and is considered “Kobe Factor” in NBA sports betting.  Probably the most dominant force of either teams in this 2010 NBA finals. 


With the Los Angeles Lakers winning game one, the sports betting odds in the sports books won't change much going into game two of this finals matchup.  With the momentum now going on for the Lakers, the Celtics is now facing an insurmountable challenge.  They wouldn't want to come home in game three with a 0-2 finals standing.  The Lakers will still be the heavily favored pick in game two and will probably still be the favorite team coming into game three, with probably just a few minor odds adjustments.
