The last one was a dominant performance by the Los Angeles Lakers, but I would look for Anthony Davis' point total to move under what it has been these last few games. I mean, AD has been absolutely eviscerating the Miami Heat. And if they have any-- if the Miami Heat have any hope of pushing this series to more than four games, they're going to need to figure out how to slow down Anthony Davis. So take Anthony Davis' point total under.
Another intriguing bet in here is Dwight Howard's point total and taking over. It's only six and a half. Dwight's been all over. He's been an incredible presence these last two series.
I would look for Dwight to really weigh in into this game again. He's been big throughout. Especially if Bam Adebayo is playing, look for the Lakers to throw Dwi-- to throw Dwight Howard at him to try and stifle Bam.
As far as the game total goes, I'm looking at taking the Heat. I think that they were close that last game to changing things up. Tyler Herro just missed his point total over. But, you know, the Heat are going to have to start closing the gap somehow. So take the Heat. I think the Lakers showed that they are a little bit susceptible sleeping on this Miami Heat team.
