Pick
-6 LAL (-110) @ Draftkings

The Houston Rockets are one loss away from leaving the bubble for good. As a team, they are putting up 108.7 points a game and on the defensive end, they are giving up 105.8 points. The offense is led by James Harden with 29.5 points and 7.9 assists a game. Russell Westbrook Adds 19 points and 7.4 rebounds. Houston will be without Daniel House for this game as he has left the bubble

With a win, the Los Angeles Lakers will advance to their first conference final since 2009-10. The Lakers are putting up 113.6 points a game and on the defensive end, they are giving up 106.2 points. The offense is led by Anthony Davis with 29.2 points and 10.9 rebounds a game. LeBron James is adding 26.3 points and nine assists.

The Rockets are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Lakers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall.

Harden has been good this series but not great while Westbrook has been average. The Rockets look tired and their shots are not falling. They will be at a disadvantage without House in the rotation. This is the game for Davis and James to exert their will, especially with the Clippers getting extended to at least one more game.

Play on the LA Lakers.

FAQs

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.
