    This thread started out asking if there was good value in wagering on Heat + 150. Now I've seen Heat + 240. Is this good value ? I saw no value in taking the Heat + 150 as I've already stated. However heat + 240 is fair but not great yet. The Heat have not been a very good road team all year yet they are a very good home team. I think if the Thunder win tonight, this series Money line will go up once again. If the Thunder win tonight, I wouldn't be surprised to see the series line go up over + 300. At that point I would think it had some value. BTW I think the Thunder win tonight.

    And now Miami is -115 to win the series.

    In order to have taken advantage of Miami +240, one had to assume and be sure the Heat were going to lose Game 1.
    That's too much of a guessing game to go about it in that manner.

    I'm sure OKC will grab one back from the Heat in Miami though, so this line will likely be back & forth.

    If Miami wins Game 2, I'll have a scalp available to go along with my Miami +150. I won't take it because I'm plenty confident that the Heat will take the series. Mark it down; James becomes the King.

    If you can get + money on either team, it's probably good to jump on it, because with these two perimenter shooting teams it's going to be a wide open series. Anything can happen.

    Very true... The plus money will have to wait until after the Game #3 winner though.

    And the price will be higher on OKC if Miami takes this one at home vs the opposite scenario...

    Over the years , one of the things I usually look at it in these kinds of series Is if i can play both sides... usually a profitable venture

    Well done, Ted. You nailed it before the series started.
