NBA Betting: Heat Steal Home-Court Advantage, Edge in Sportsbook

The Miami Heat managed to draw even in their NBA Finals clash with the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. Now having effectively stolen home-court advantage, they’ll look to use that momentum to their advantage over the course of the rest of the series. The Heat are -4.5 favorites to win Game 3 Tuesday, and the NBA odds point their way for the overall season as well.

At the start of the series, the Heat were slight underdogs given how dominant the Spurs had looked throughout the 2013-14 campaign. After LeBron James cramped up in Game 1, the prognostication looked accurate.

Heading into back-to-back games in Miami, however, the Heat hold all the power. Not only do they hold the edge heading into their next individual match, they’re -150 favorites to win the series. If betting on a game-to-game basis isn’t your style, bet on the NBA Finals outright in the sportsbook.

Does the fact that San Antonio has dropped into the underdog role make them a more compelling NBA betting option? More will be known after Game 3, but don’t rule out the unexpected.
