It doesn't get much better than this as on Thursday night the two most storied franchises in the NBA meet in a Game 7 to decide the NBA title.  The Los Angeles Lakers routed the Boston Celtics on Tuesday to even up the best-of-seven NBA Finals betting at three games each.  Now it all comes down to Game 7 on Thursday to decide the championship.

The Lakers are a 7-point favorite with a total of 187 at SBG Global.

The Lakers played with far more intensity on Tuesday night and Boston was steamrolled.  Both teams have a number of highly talented players so in this series it has been the team that wants it more that has won each game.  The Lakers have the home court edge for Game 7 and that might be the difference on Thursday night.  Los Angeles head coach Phil Jackson has won 10 NBA titles but he has never coached a Game 7 of the NBA Finals odds . It will be the first time since 2005 that the NBA Finals have gone to a seventh game and just the second time in the last 16 years. Los Angeles is trying to win back-to-back titles for the first time since 2001-2002 while Boston is trying to win their second title in three years.

The team that has won the rebounding battle has won every game in this series. Kobe Bryant continues to play exceptional for Los Angeles but the Lakers win when they rebound and control the paint. On Tuesday the Lakers controlled the middle and their bench completely outplayed the Boston bench.  Kobe had another strong game as he had 26 points and 11 rebounds and he got a lot of help.  The Celtics did very little from the start as they seemed to be counting on a Game 7.

Even though Boston lost as an underdog on Tuesday, they are still 15-7-1 ATS in their last 23 playoff games as an underdog. The Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a home favorite.

The last four games in this series have all gone under the total but the Lakers are still a team that can go over the total as six of their last nine home games have gone over.  In this series at Los Angeles, the Under is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings.
