NBA Finals Game 3

Some NBA Finals Game 3 odds trends to consider before betting on this series (see Sportsbetting.com for all your betting needs here)

Perhaps the most crucial historic stat Gambling911.com could find is that this series has been won by a mere point in three of the last five games.  Of course the last two were won by wider margins (both during the 2010 NBA Finals), the two teams alternating wins.   Boston losing by more than the posted spread of +5 ½ to +6 only occurred 3 times in the last 10 games of this series.

A more important historic stat is that Boston has only won once in the last 10 games versus Los Angeles at home.  That might be a bit deceiving since 7 of the last 10 games were played in LA. 

After a Celtics win, the Lakers have always come back to avenge their loss.

One stat that really stands out is that Boston is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a winning road record, however, they are also 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 vs. NBA Pacific.  Combined with other stats, the Lakers certainly seem to have an edge here when it comes to historical data vs. the current +2 ½ point line found at Sportsbetting.com.
