Gregg Popovich has plenty to think of after his late game strategy cost San Antonio victory in game six, but right now the Spurs have something else on their mind. The decisive game will be played in Miami where the Heat have an amazing record, and will have an arena packed with fans cheering for them.
Bet: San Antonio +6,5
Odds: Winner Sports 1.90
San Antonio started game six aggressively and took an early lead, only to see it reduced to a few points in the fourth quarter. Lebron James scored two points with less than a second before the final buzzer, sending the game into overtime. Only 13 points were scored in extra time but Miami had eight of them, and are once again favorites to lift the trophy. Despite surviving this scare, the Heat are not out of the woods yet, and the visitors now have the definitive proof that they’ve got what it takes to prevail in Miami
Tim Duncan and Tony Parker did their part in game six, but more impressive was the offensive effort of Kawhi Leonard who scored 22 points. On the flipside, Manu Ginobili was limited to nine and it is the Argentinian player that needs to step up in game seven and give his team a fighting chance. Lebron James play 48 minutes and this is the player that the Spurs need to contain if they are to win it all in Miami.
Once again the bookmakers are overpricing Miami and this translates into high odds for San Antonio to cover the Asian handicap. Winner Sports has reduced the spread from 7.5 point to 6.5, but the odds are just as good as they were one day ago, therefore punters should stick to the same bet.
