NBA Finals Game 2 Odds

NBA Finals Game Two odds have been released for the Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers with LA a -6 favorite, compared to the -5 ½ line they had in Game One. 

The Lakers beat Boston a score of 102-89 on Thursday night.  Game Two goes off Sunday evening.

If the first 48 minutes of the rematch are any indication, this series again will be a knockdown, drag-out physical confrontation -- and the supposedly finesse-oriented Lakers held their ground early, leaving the Celtics frustrated after giving up 100 points for just the second time in their last 10 games.

"They were the more physical team by far," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "They were more aggressive. They attacked us the entire night. I didn't think we handled it very well."

The line on this game remained firm at -6 just about everywhere Saturday evening except the Las Vegas Hilton, which moved to -5 ½.

There is good news for both the NBA and the bookmakers.  Ratings for Game One of the 2010 NBA Finals were up 17 percent over last year.  The game drew 14.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
