Ricky's 7* play the 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 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games overall.
- The Heat are 1-4 ATS in their last five NBA Finals games.
- The Lakers are 6-1 straight up in the last seven head to head meetings.
Verdict: The Lakers are far better than any of the teams Miami has faced at this point.
