The Heat vs Thunder Odds Game 3 have Miami at -4 on the sports odds Vegas at BOVADA CASINO
2012 NBA Finals Picks Analysis: Miami jumped out to an early lead in game 1 only to blow it late on tired legs. In game 2 they did the same and managed to hold off the never say die Thunder with improved play from Dwayne Wade and a consecutive 17 point performance from unheralded veteran Shane Battier. Oklahoma City has appeared out of sync with the erratic play from point guard Russell Westbrook being the main culprit to their struggles. Bosh made his first start since being injured in game 2 and his 16 rebounds and 15 points back in the starting lineup is proof that he is back to being himself. The Heat vs Thunder Odds Game 3 Total is at 193.5 points.
Dwayne Wade still does not look 100% but Bosh being back in the starting lineup hikes the Heat up a notch over the Thunder on the power rating scale. The Heat with a raucous home crowd should be shaded at -6 rather than -4 on the spread so a 1 UNIT wager on a cover is in play on the Miami Heat.
