Vegas: Oklahoma City Thunder favored over Miami Heat in NBA Finals


The Oklahoma City Thunder – not the Miami Heat – are the favorites to win the NBA title this year, according to Pinnacle Sports.

The Thunder have home court in the series, had a tougher road to the Finals and have looked better than Miami so far in the playoffs so it shouldn’t be too surprising.

The Heat do have a three-time MVP in LeBron James who is playing as well as anyone ever right now.

The series starts Tuesday night at 9 p.m. EST on ABC with Game 1 in Oklahoma City. The Thunder are a 4.5 favorite in Game 1.

Game 1: Thunder a 4.5 point favorite and -165 (win $100 on a $165 bet) straight up. The Heat are +149.

Heat sweep: +1838 (on $100 bet)
Heat in 5: +591
Heat in 6: +808
Heat in 7: +689

Thunder sweep: +1247
Thunder in 5: +1007
Thunder in 6: +345
Thunder in 7: +245
