Los Angeles Lakers vs Houston Rockets: LAL -5.5; Total: 220.5
On Thursday, the Los Angeles Lakers look to take a commanding 3-1 lead in their NBA Western Conference semifinals series when they play Game 4 against the Houston Rockets. The Lakers lost the opening game of the series but have won each of the last two straight up and against the spread. The Lakers are being led once again by the combination of Anthony Davis and LeBron James as the two combined to score 60 points in Game 3. Houston's defense came up big in the Game 1 victory but has not succeeded in containing Davis and James since. The Rockets will need another outstanding performance by James Harden and Russell Westbrook, but will once again fall short on Thursday as the Lakers will win and cover again.
1st Part of NBA/NHL Parlay: Los Angeles Lakers -5.5
Vegas Golden Knights vs Dallas Stars: VEG -146; O/U 5.5
The Vegas Golden Knights evened their NHL Western Conference Finals best of seven series with the Dallas Stars by beating Dallas in Game 2 3-0. Robin Lehner stopped each of the 24 shots he faced in net for the Golden Knights and Peter Stasny snapped a scoreless run for Vegas forwards with a goal. Dallas backup goaltender Anton Khudobin allowed three goals in the second period and was pulled during the second intermission and replaced by a rookie Jake Oettinger who made his NHL playoff debut. This series has been characterized by its physicality as Dallas opened up with strong body checks and heavy fore checking to win Game 1 and Vegas did the same early and often in Game 2 and came out on top. Game 3 will be a low-scoring, defensive struggle and the play here is the UNDER. The UNDER has cashed in 5 of the last eight between these two Western Conference rivals. Dallas wins 3-2
