Ricky's 8* play on the Under.
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 under is 7-1 in the Lakers last eight NBA Championship games.
- The under is 9-2 in the Heat's last 11 versus a team with a winning straight up record.
- The under is 6-2 in the last eight head to head meetings.
Verdict: The stakes are a lot higher all of a sudden. No more easy buckets.
