Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers Preview
After one team gets beat comfortably in game 1, you’d expect the line to move in their favour for game 2.
The exact opposite has happened here, with the Lakers listed as 5.5-point favourites, after closing as 6.5-point favourites in game 1.
I’m relying somewhat on the zig-zag theory here, but the line value appears to be clearly on LA.
They’ve got numerous matchup advantages in this series, especially on the interior.
Anthony Davis was comfortably their best player in game 1 and I’m expecting more of the same from him here.
Houston had had a ton of wear and tear throughout these playoffs, especially given their high-stakes games against OKC in round 1.
They’re bound for a letdown game sometime soon and this has the potential to be the perfect candidate.
3-point shooting luck also went heavily against the Lakers in game 1, shooting just 28% on 38 attempts.
They’re not an especially good 3-point shooting team, but the law of averages suggests this should increase here.
