Betting Pick

Sure this in the NBA and teams can get totally outplayed and then come back the next game and dominate their opponent. The thing is that it wasn’t just one game. It was back-to-back games that the Heat weren’t in from much after the opening tip off and really if the Spurs didn’t miss 4 straight free throws late in Game 2 this series would already be over. It’s difficult to put in a defensive plan to defend cohesion and that’s exactly what Miami would need to do to have any chance in Game 5. I’m late getting this up so not getting the best of the line here. Nevertheless, I’m still backing the Spurs.
Take the San Antonio Spurs -6

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
