In their last five personal matches Houston have won three times. At the moment the score in the series is 1-1. The Rockets reached the quarterfinals last season.
At the beginning of the second round Houston defeated the Lakers (112-97), thus angered LeBron James and Anthony Davis, who did not think for a long time and in the next meeting they took revenge for the defeat (109-117).
This confrontation deserves a finale, so anyone can win in it. However, bookmakers have less faith in the success of the Rockets, although you can move mountains with James Harden and Russell Westbrook.
It is impossible to act so confidently against “Houston”, because the opponent is of a higher class compared to the “blazers”. The team from Los Angeles lost at the start of the second series (97-112). However, they realized their mistakes and corrected the situation in the last fight (117-109).
The Lakers will take to the floor as a favorite, but so far the club is no different from opponents in terms of play, so it is too early to give out such statuses.
Our prediction is a victory for the Houston Rockets with a handicap (+7.5) points for a coefficient of 1.66 in 1xBet
