Ricky's 7* play on the Heat.
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 Heat are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games overall.
- The Heat are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest.
- The Lakers are 7-15-1 ATS in their last 23 NBA Championship games.
Verdict: The Heat are in big trouble, but the line still appears inflated.
