    Not saying Miami will win this, but if you favore the Heat, then that's a good price on a matchup of what is probably 2 pretty evenly-matched teams.

    I dunno about that, that line is a little more than even once you takeout homecourt advantage.

    Considering OKC was +180 to get to the conf finals (Don't ask me why, but this was what it was) and Miami was -550 it seems like OKC had to get more credit for winning last round than Miami did.

    I respect your opinion, you were the only dude besides me in the other thread that realized SA was way overhyped compared to OKC/Miami. However, I think the value is still on OKC. They are -160 that isn't much more than giving them credit for HC.

    We'll see who was right. Nobody saw the Spurs losing. Nobody saw the Heat winning after game 5. Nobody saw Thunder coming back from 0-2. Miami will need to play flawless to stop the Thunder, especially at home.

    As much as I want my Thunder to win, they are still a very young team. For that reason alone, I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling about them in this series.

    Remember home court in this series is a bit different with the 2-3-2 format. Personally, don't know who will win this series, but I do believe the wrong team is favored.

    Well the Thunder kind of cruised through the playoffs, while the Heat struggled, getting behind the Pacers and nearly losing to the Celts.

    I think OKC should be favored here. Lebron still has to win that ring before I take him seriously.

    Put a dime on the Heat when they were down 3-2 to Boston.

    Have them at +335 to win the title.

    It all depends on what a dime means to you.....I'd hedge it as I think OKC at least wins game # 1 fairly easily.

    OKC ML is tough and giving 4 or more points exposes you to a Polish middle.

    So I guess I would bet enough on OKC series to get the original dime back ?

    Matchbook used to be great for this stuff.....back when you could Betonsports !

    seems like Vegas is enticing action on the Heat (a very public team). Thunder is the right side here

    The Heat struggled, but were without Bosh.

    Lebron has yet to get a ring, but Durant has never even sniffed one.

    You're correct, they were favorites because they had the easiest ride to the finals. The only bump in the road for them in the East were the Bull's and that ended when Rose went down. No disrespect to Celts, Sixers, Pacers but the West was much much stronger this season, whoever came out of the West would be the favorites, I think. The Thunder rocked, beating the last 3 NBA champs out of the West. (Mavericks, Lakers, Spurs)

    Anybody who has watched Lebron the last two games know this series won't be easy for the Thunder. In fact with this 2-3-2 format it wouldn't surprise me if Miami is up 3-2 going back to OKC. For the Thunder I think it all hinges on protecting the rim, and praying that someone on the Heat doesn't decide to have career nights from the 3 point line. I've been to a couple of the Heat/Thunder games the last two years. It will likely be a perimeter shooting series. And anything can happen in those types of games. If Bosh stays healthy for Miami, the only two advantages I can see for OKC is the home court advantage, and a better bench. But the Heat experience factor could be a big advantage in this series.

    as much as i hate the word, i would say value with the heat. like most nba series, if you are taking the heat, i'd play some of it before series and then some after game 1 at much better odds, assuming the home team wins the first game (which they usually do).
