Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Lakers 10/2/2020 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat suffered a tough loss in Game 1 and beyond the blowout loss, they are facing injuries to their NBA All-Star players. Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo are now doubtful for Game 2 and Jimmy Butler also suffered an injury but promised to play. Adebayo and Butler may play the next game not 100% and Dragic is out for the entire series. The Heat will now rely on rookies Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson and Kendrick Nunn to step up and grow fast to fill in the void. With not much big men after Adebayo, Kelly Olynyk and Meyers Leonard are expected to play more minutes in Game 2.

Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers are carrying the upper hand and probably even higher as they head to Game 2. With no injuries and a very much inspired team, they are entering the next game with a full deck of cards. LeBron James flirted with a triple-double in Game 1 to contribute 25 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists while Anthony Davis led the team in scoring with 34 points, nine boards, five assists and three blocks. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope stepped up and was key to that huge run in the second quarter with 13 points while the NBA Finals version of Danny Green showed up and dropped three triples to finish with 11 points, four rebounds and three blocks.
