This is my GAME 1 WINNER.
6:00 pm pst.
Houston won and covered both 2020 meetings with Los Angeles. Yes, the Rockets are a "smallish" squad, but the stellar play of Harden, Westbrook, and Gordon have the talent and the speed to frustrate the Lakers. This is a very good, experienced team that is 5-2 ATS the last seven as an underdog. The oddsmakers tend to inflate the lines when it comes to LA, as they are just 4-9 ATS then last 13 as a favorite and 4-10 ATS the last 14 overall. Take Houston. Thank you.
