Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers Game 5 NBA Picks

NBA Picks on this Western Conference Semifinals, Game 5 on September 12, 2020 between the Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers.


Today’s sports betting preview on this Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers Game 5 matchup. This game is set to tip off Saturday, September 12th at 8pm et.

The current odds have the Lakers as -6.5 point favorites and the over/under at 215.5 total points. The betting public has 69% of their money on the Los Angeles.

Houston comes into this game now down 3-1 in the series and in a win or go home scenario. In game 4 on Thursday, James Harden put up 21 points, but overall played terrible. He shot 2 of 11 from the field and 1 of 6 from 3 point land. If they want any shot in defeating the powerful Lebron and Davis due, then Harden and Westbrook will both need to be able to score 27+ points. I fully expect Houston to come out of the gate early and finally get the offensive spark they’ve desperately needed this series.

Houston is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games and the total has gone under in 6 of the Rockets last 7 games.

Los Angeles come into this game just one win away from reaching the Western Conference finals where they’ll most likely be playing the Clippers. This could be a classic look ahead game for the Lakers. Anthony Davis will continue his big numbers going up against the Rockets small ball lineup, but the key to them winning this game and the final will the defense they’ve been playing and getting the bench more involved. Last game they held Houston to 43% shooting and on the other side of the ball had 6 of their players score over 10+ points each.

LA is 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 games and the total has gone under in 5 of the Lakers’ last 6 games against Houston.

Our numbers show the best opportunity to make money in this Houston Rockets vs Los Angeles Lakers game is to roll with the Houston Rockets Team Total Over 103.5 points at the -125 price.
