Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs: NBA Finals odds


For the second straight year, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs have advanced to the NBA Finals. The Heat, who took down the Spurs in seven games to win the 2012-2013 title, defeated the Charlotte Bobcats (Hornets), Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers while the Spurs had to battle the Dallas Mavericks, Portland Trail Blazers and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Last year, the Spurs took game 1 with a 92-88 victory and the Heat rebounded with a 103-84 victory in game 2. The Spurs took back control in game 5 with a 113-77 victory. The Heat tied things up in game 4, winning 109-93. After the Spurs won game 5 114-104, they nearly had the title wrapped up in game 6. The Spurs led by five with just 28 seconds left, but after a LeBron James three-pointer, Kawhi Leonard made just one of two free throws. Then, Ray Allen hit a three from the corner and the Heat eventually won in overtime 103-100. They then downed the Spurs 95-88 in game 7 to claim their second straight title.

Once again, this series is expected it to go six or seven games although the Spurs winning in five games would not surprise the folks in Vegas.
