MIAMI HEAT VS LOS ANGELES LAKERS CASH BET WAGERING ANALYSIS
The Miami Heat had Bam Adebayo returning in their last game. However, he was not able to make the right impact to equalize the series. The Los Angeles Lakers bigs will camp upon him and the help defense in the ball roll has been very committed by the players. With not many cards to show, signs are showing that this will be the Lakers’ night. Los Angeles will also wear the “Black Mamba” jerseys. They have never been defeated when they come to the court with those threads.
MIAMI HEAT TRYING TO STAY ALIVE
The Miami Heat has been a battered team in this NBA Playoffs but they have not seen anything like the Los Angeles Lakers. Goran Dragic was still held off from playing and he should be in the next game as well. Jimmy Butler is expected to come out swinging along with Tyler Herro. With Bam Adebayo back, it gives them added options and it should be interesting if they try to put Kelly Olynyk inside the floor with him to match up to the Lakers height. Still, there is not much that the Heat can do to surprise the Lakers anymore but expect them to be resilient until the very last second.
LOS ANGLES LAKERS CORONATION
The Los Angeles Lakers have shown that they can easily adjust to the different faces of the Miami Heat and kept them at pace in Game 4. LeBron James controlled the floor very much and he was the biggest burden for the Heat last game. Anthony Davis has always been dominant and with those two around, they are just a huge mismatch for their opponents. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Danny Green look to polish their rifles and will be a huge factor in spreading the floor while Rajon Rondo adds up to the basketball IQ of the team. This should still be a close fight knowing how Miami fights through.
MIAMI HEAT VS LOS ANGELES LAKERS HEAD-TO-HEAD WITH SPREAD
In the past games, the Miami Heat has always kept close to the spread and we expect them to do so in this match. With the brink of death, an animal is most dangerous and that is what the Heat will be. This is not going to be a walk in the park for the Los Angeles Lakers and they will have to earn this win and have their breaks at the end game to prevail over the resilient Heat squad.
MIAMI HEAT VS LOS ANGELES LAKERS CASHBET FREE PICK
Even with the efforts of the Miami Heat, the IQ of the Los Angeles Lakers are going to be too much for them to handle. This should be the last game of the season as the Lakers don’t want to lose wearing the “Black Mamba” jerseys and go all out. A good storybook ending to this very unique season.
