Let π be a genuine cuspidal representation of the metaplectic group of rank n. We consider the theta lifts to the orthogonal group associated to a quadratic space of dimension 2n+1. We show a case of regularised Rallis inner product formula that relates the pairing of theta lifts to the central value of the Langlands L-function of π twisted by a character. The bulk of this paper focuses on proving a case of regularised Siegel-Weil formula, on which the Rallis inner product formula is based and whose proof is missing in the literature.
