BIG AL's NBA LAKERS/HEAT GAME 6 WINNER (47-29 RUN)
Miami Heat (58-35) vs Los Angeles Lakers (67-24)
Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 7:30 pm
At 7:30 pm, our selection is on the Los Angeles Lakers minus the points over Miami. After covering the point spread in Game 1, the Lakers have failed to cover the spread in each of the four next games. On Sunday, the Lakers will attempt (for the 2nd time) to win their 17th NBA championship. In Game 5, Anthony Davis re-aggravated a heel injury, but he swears he will be fine for Game 6. One of the things I love to do when betting on the NBA is play on .710 (or better) teams off an upset playoff loss as a 3-point (or greater) favorite, provided they don't trail in a 7-game series. Since 1990, these teams have rebounded to cash 61% ATS. Even better: the Lakers are a solid 16-7-1 ATS in the Playoffs off a loss in which they failed to cover the spread by 10+ points. Meanwhile, LeBron James' teams are 22-11 ATS in the Playoffs as a favorite following a 2-game (or worse) ATS losing streak. And Miami's 4-9 ATS in the Playoffs when playing on a 4-game (or better) ATS win streak. Lay the points in Game 6 with the Lakers. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
