Ricky's 8* play on LA Lakers.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Lakers are 4-0 ATS in their last four playoff games as a favorite.
- The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following an ATS win.
- The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a straight up win of more than 10 points.
Verdict: The Nuggets are due for a let down coming off a huge Game 7 win.
