Pick Details

(541) L.A. Lakers vs. Houston (542) 8:00 PM | Tue, Jan 12 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Loss (-872) - Final Score HOU 100 at LAL 117
4.5 HOU (-109) @ 888sport

Two nights ago the LA Lakers thumped the houston rockets 120-102. In that game the Rockets only had one player shoot above 50% in the contest. I expect the Houston interior defense of Christian Wood and Boogie cousins who played for the Lakers last year to come in more motivated tonight after getting schooled on Sunday. James Harden won't be held to 20 points again and this high flying rockets offense should get untracked tonight. Take Houston plus the points here.


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
