Public opinion: Bettors see another high-scoring Finals game

Miami Heat at Oklahoma City Thunder (-5.5, 196)

The Heat shot 42.1 percent from beyond the arc and the Thunder shot over 51.9 percent from the field in Game 1, helping the game go over the closing 196-point total. The over/under line opened at 192 for Game 1 but was bet up four points by tipoff.

Covers users still think the total is too low. Over 66 percent of contest players like over 196 points in Game 2 of the Finals. Shane Battier probably isn’t going to score 17 points again, but, then again, you’ve got to figure James Harden is going to tally more than 5 points.

Consensus: Over 196

Houston Astros (+125) at San Francisco Giants (-133)

One day after Matt Cain pitched the 22nd perfect game in major league history and the first in the 128-year history of the Giants, his teammates need to regroup in time for Thursday’s series finale. The Giants are aiming for a series sweep after outscoring the Astros 16-3 in the first two games to move 3 1/2 games behind first-place Los Angeles.

About 67 percent of contest players see the Giants giving the Astros the business a second straight night.

Consensus: Giants
