Houston

The Rockets had a very tough first run against Oklahoma as they had to play all seven games to determine the strongest. The team held out and made it to the quarterfinals, where the opponent was clearly not weaker.

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.

Lakers

The Lakes showed a class in the first round of the playoffs, when Portland passed. However, do not forget that before that Damian Lillard and company spent a lot of energy, whereas Frank Vogel's guys just put the squeeze on the opponent in five matches.

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.

Prediction

To be honest, the Lakers didn't show anything special during the playoffs. Frank Vogel's team acts at a high level, which makes it a favorite, but Houston is also performing well, especially now James Harden and Russell Westbrook are in the ranks. Respectively, the “rockets” can fight back any opponent. Therefore, we offer a bet on a positive handicap of "Rockets".

Our prediction is a victory for the Houston Rockets with a handicap (+7.5) points for a coefficient of 1.66 in 1xBet
