Sports Betting Preview on this NBA Finals Game 1 matchup between the Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Lakers tipping off Wednesday September 30, 2020 at 9:00pm et.

The NBA oddsmakers have the Lakers as -4.5 point favorites and the over/under currently at 218 total points. The betting public has 51% of their money on Los Angeles.

Miami is back in the NBA Finals for the first time since LeBron James left for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2014 offseason. The Heat took care of business in 6 games against the Celtics, averaging 112.3 points per game while on defense giving up an average of 112.5 points per game. Those kind of offensive numbers will likely decrease due to a more defensive matchup in this winner takes all series. These two teams last met in December 2019, where the Lakers shot 49% from the field and took the 113-110 road win. In that game, the Lakers dynamic duo of Lebron James and Anthony Davis put up a combined 61 points while the Heat had 5 players in double digits.

Miami are 12-3 against the spread in their last 15 games and the total has gone over in 5 of the Heats last 6 games.

LA comes into this game looking to get Anthony Davis his first NBA Championship ring, while LeBron James is trying to get his fourth. Over the 5 game series against the Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals, the Lakers offense average 113.6 points per game while giving up an average of 109.2 points per game. We’ll have an opportunity to finally watching a great matchup at the big man position with Bam and Anthony Davis. Both teams will look to their big man early in the game to set the tone and we feel that Anthony Davis has the slight advantage and that advantage will determine the outcome of the series.

Los Angeles is 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games against an opponent in the Southeast Division and the total has gone under in 4 of Los Angeles’s last 5 games against Miami.
