Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets Game 4 Betting Preview

 

As the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets square off in a Western Conference semifinals slugfest, a decisive Game 4 could easily tip the balance in one way or another. This makes it absolutely paramount for those looking to get down on the game to understand the deciding factors in this series.

 

WEEKLY FOOTBALL SQUARES CONTEST IS BACK

 

These are ultimately the sustained health of Russell Westbrook, James Harden's ability to continue to carry the scoring load, and the Los Angeles Lakers' willingness to stay active in the series, as they are a dominant team that can press down on the proverbial gas pedal whenever they want to.

 

Here are the angles to keep in mind as you lock in your wagers at Americaís Bookie ahead of Game 4.

The Lakers' Neverending Energy

One of the most confounding aspects opposing teams encounter when they are running into the Lakers is the fact they never stop coming at you. Unlike most teams, the Lakers have a tremendous bench, which keeps them in virtually every contest they play in.

 

Combine this with the starting magic of LeBron James and Anthony Davis, and you're in for a long 48 minutes no matter who you happen to be against the Lakers. It might be smart to watch for an early soft line when live betting, see how the game is flowing to get some great value.

 

This makes them an especially difficult team to challenge, but in the end, they seem to prevail due to their superior depth and ability to wear down opponents. In the Rockets-Lakers series, this sort of sustained onslaught has been a major factor that separates the Lakers' ability to get separation in the wins column against the Rockets.

 

But the Rockets, to their credit, have been able to keep the Lakers at bay, and because of their talented scorers, Houston should be able to overcome the relative inequity in scoring options. But it remains to be seen as far as how long they can keep it up.

 

Editorís Choice: Betting NFL Week 1

Rockets' Dynamic Duo

The Rockets have arguably the best scoring backcourt in the league. While the stat nerds will immediately reply with effective field-goal percentage numbers, the fact remains, on any given night, Harden or Westbrook can light the opposition up. 

 

While he's never won an NBA Finals, Mike D'Antoni deserves credit for being one of the brightest offensive minds in NBA history. His ability to out-maneuver much more talented teams, as he has had to do throughout his coaching career, is a testament to his brilliance as an offensive mind.

 

Whereas most teams struggle to keep up with the Lakers, the Rockets have been able to keep it going so far. But the question remains, will they be able to pull it off in Game 4?

The Pick: Don't Overthink It; Lake Show Rolls

The Rockets will come back to Earth, sans any "Houston we have a problem" radio transmissions. Expect the Lakers to dominate end-to-end.

 

We like the Lakers to cover the spread and the total to stay under.

 

Final score: 117-105.
