NBA Picks on this NBA Finals Game 5 on Friday October 9, 2020 between the Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Lakers.


NBA Finals Game 5 Sports Betting Preview  between the Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Lakers tipping off this Friday, October 9th at 9pm et.

The NBA oddsmakers have the Lakers as -7 point favorites with the over/under at 216 total points. The betting public has 57% of their money on the Miami Heat as underdogs.

Miami comes into this game now down 3-1 in the series and in a win or go home scenario. With Goran Dragic out in this game with a torn plantar fascia in his left foot, the x-factor will be how Jimmy Butler comes to play. He had a good game 4, but putting up just 22 points won’t cut it if they won’t any shot in winning this game and keeping the series alive. Last game, Bam Adebayo played 33 minutes in his return from injury and was able to score 15 points and 7 rebounds, but those numbers will definitely increase in this Friday night game. We’ll be on his player prop points on the over if the price is right, so comment below to get this prop when its released.

Kelly Olynyk played just 12 minutes last game, but expect Coach Erik Spoelstra to get him involved a little more in this match up as well. Miami is 15-4 against the spread in their last 19 games this season and the

Heat are 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games as an underdog of 5-10 points.

Lebron comes into this game looking to grab his the Fourth NBA Championship and his first as a Laker. The James and Davis tag team duo put up 50 of the Lakers 102 points in Game 4. Danny Green is just 3 of 18 from 3 point land over the past 3 games and this game 5 seems like the perfect opportunity where he’d get hot, so our second player prop will be the over 3-points for him if the price is right, so comment below to get access and make a little extra money. The Lakers in the last 3 games are averaging 110 points and giving up an average of 108.3 points per game on defense.

Los Angeles is 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Southeast Division and the total has gone under in 7 of the Lakers’ last 9 games against the Heat.

Our numbers show the best opportunity to make money on this Friday Night NBA Finals Game 5 game between the Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Lakers is to buy a points and take the Lakers -6 -130.
