    Heat -3 vs. OKC ?

    The books have to know that a lot of the money is going to be on OKC.

    Heat played Tuesday

    Is Wade out?

    And still they make OKC +3?

    What am I missing here? Other than the Heat have a 17 game home winning streak.

    Line seems perfect, OKC is -1 on neutral court right now.

    The under is the play that sticks out to me at a first glance.

    As I posted in another thread, I'm kicking myself for not taking Under 203 on Heritage advance lines yesterday.

    OKC ML. Thunder played poorly against the Grizzlies. They had way too many TO's which is uncharacteristic of them lately. Since Fisher has been in OKC, Westbrook has elevated his play. I look for OKC and Westbrook to play a good game and focus on cutting the # of TO's and quality shots. Even with Wade, OKC should win this game.

    Even though James had a good game last night, he was tired by the end of the 3rd, which makes this line look even stranger to me.

    It's just a curious line to me more so because the books know the pubic is going to pound OKC at probably 70-75%.

    Books using the revenge factor which they also think bettors wll use.

    OKC completely blew out mia in OKC last week, by like 15 and it wasnt that close. So they figure Mia will be looking to make a statement at home.

    Also considering OKC was only -1 (moved to -2)in that home game this line makes sense and if anything might be low on the Miami side.

    OKC had way too many turnovers against the Grizz but Memphis hassled them, Tony Allen was immense and they went out with the right gameplan, I'm thinking like the Kraken here, OKC will improve and beat the Heat, I think James will be tired after last nights performance, if Wade is back he prob won't be right, Turiaf instead of Anthony??? Think OKC on the ML, Thumbs up Kraken, good post

    Heat are 9-1 SU this season without Wade, so he's not exactly the x-factor. Are the heat due for a home loss? I think if you play the Heat, it should 1st Half. I can see this going like the Lakers game and the Thunder come rolling back in the 2H.

    Lean on Heat. Guess Thunder will lose 2 games in a row for the 1st time this season.

    He was so tired he only managed 15 points in the fourth.

    This game could easily go either way. I think Miami makes a stand tonight. Bosh will make an appearance and if Wade is in Lebron should defend KD well enough.

    If you saw last nights game vs Philly - you had to be impressed with LeBron's performance. Other than the fact he put up 40+ pts, the way he closed out the 4Q was brilliant (when Philly came back and got within 3 points). I like to believe Wade not playing contributed to this. And if Wade is out today, we can expect the same from LeBron. He may not put up 40, but I expect the entire Heat roster to play their hearts out in this big game and as long as they keep this within reach, I fully expect LeBron to be able to close out on home court.

    In addition to the revenge angle, Heat have been simply dominating this season on home court so you gotta love backing them here. And fading a huge public play also helps the cause.

    Miami plays better over a short period (few games) without Wade. LeBron simply takes over.

    I just don't see Miami losing twice to OKC. If MIA can't get up for this game, they have some serious mental problems.

    Crazy day to be a fan in Miami. Marlins open up the MLB season at 7 EST and then the Heat play at 8 EST.

    Line seems right on, for Miami home game.

    Both teams up for this game. Doesnt matter what happened yesterday or last time they met.

    No doubt. James is a different player when Wade is out.

    Yeah I could almost care less if Wade plays. He is still considered a game time call, I doubt he sits though.

    I wonder if they get rid of Wade next year if the Heat don't win the title this season.

    Wade is suited and ready to play. I like OKC though. I think they will run n gun and control the paint.

    Heat suck. So Overrated. The east blows. If lebron and wade arent getting phantom calls when they just sprint down the lane and chuck it up or easy fast break lay ups against old slow teams they suck.
