NBA Finals Game 5 opens as a pick'em, Wade's MVP odds move

The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs are trading bombs like heavyweight fighters in the NBA Finals. Following the Spurs’ one-sided victory in Game 3, the Heat countered with a 109-93 win as 1-point road favorites in Game 4 Thursday.

With the series tied 2-2, and one more game in San Antonio before swinging back to South Beach for the final two games if need, oddsmakers have adjusted Miami to a -260 favorite with San Antonio as a +210 underdog.

The spread for Game 5 Sunday opened as a pick’em but the line is on the move and is now Spurs +1.

Oddsmakers opened with the total set at 187 points and has moved to 187.5. The Spurs and Heat have combined for a 2-2 over/under record in the first four games of the NBA Finals.

Odds have also shifted for the NBA Finals MVP Award. LeBron James is the favorite to win the Bill Russell Trophy at -250 but teammate Dwyane Wade, who exploded for 32 points in Game 4, is presenting solid value at +700 after being as high as +2,000 at some books heading into Game 3. San Antonio PG Tony Parker is listed at +400 while veteran power forward Tim Duncan is +450.

both teams have not won 2 games in a row and both teams also have not lost 2 gm in a row. which means that spurs should win gm 5 and heat should win gm 6. and the best tm will win gm 7. it looks like heat in 7 because they are the home team. gm 3 spurs looked like the better team. gm 4 heat looked like the better team. until a team wins 2 in a row we will not know who the best team is.

Aside from the disappearing act in game 3, the Miami heat look like poised to hoist that Larry O'Brien in a matter of a few days. I think this could now go 7 with the Heat victorious at home.
