OKC vs. Miami Line – Game 3 of NBA Finals (Video)

The OKC vs. Miami line was coming in at -4 in favor of Miami for Game 3 of the 2012 NBA Finals.   This series is all tied up at 1 apiece.  All betting odds were available at Bookmaker here.

If there’s one big theme of the first two games, it was the slow start of the Thunder, Michael Robinson of DonBest.com noted.  

“They trailed by 13 points in the second quarter of the opener before rallying for a 105-94 win. They started in even more dreadful fashion in Thursday’s Game 2, trailing 18-2 and never taking the lead despite another valiant comeback in the 100-96 loss.”

The Heat are 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS at home in the playoffs. Those first three matchups against New York, Indiana and Boston all started in Florida where they had homecourt advantage, so it’s a little different coming home for Game 3.

Totals bettors have seen the ‘over’ go 1-0-1 this series. The ‘over’ is also 9-2-1 in Miami’s last 12 and 3-0 in the final three home games against Boston (average combined points scored in regulation of just 190.3).

Oklahoma City has also seen a lot of ‘overs’ lately at 4-0-1 in its last five and 12-4-1 in the postseason. That includes 5-1 in the last six away (average combined points scored of 206.5).

Only two home teams in the last 27 years have won all three middle games, although one was the 2006 Heat led by Wade and Shaquille O’Neal.
