Heat open as 6.5-point faves for NBA Finals Game 7

The Miami Heat opened as 6.5-point home favorites for Game 7 of the NBA Finals after escaping with a 103-100 win in overtime versus the San Antonio Spurs at the American Airlines Arena Tuesday night.

Miami improved to 13-0 SU coming off a loss since Jan. 10 but fell short of the 6.5-point spread, marking the first time the Heat failed to cover in those rebound games during that span. The Heat and Spurs have alternated wins and loss since San Antonio took Game 1 of the finals.

Miami is just 2-4 ATS in the finals and 11-11 ATS in the postseason. San Antonio boasts a 14-6 ATS mark in the playoffs.

The total for Game 7 Thursday opened at 190 points. After playing under the number in the opening two games of the series in South Beach, the Heat and Spurs have topped the total in four straight games. The Game 6 total closed at 192 points. San Antonio is 11-9 over/under in the playoffs while Miami owns an 11-9-2 over/under postseason count.

Moneyline odds have Miami priced as a -300 favorite to win Game 7 SU and earn back-to-back NBA titles. San Antonio is listed as a +240 underdog.

Ive been all over the Overs in this series .It just felt once the series was tied at 2 Both teams figured out they would need 95-100 points to win.Now to come back after having that game in there hands is a tall order.But if any team can rebound from that its this Spurs team .If the refs called one of those fouls in the end of OT the series would be over . Ill be on the over again 189 I have the Spurs in the series @+185 For fun Ill take a teaser Spurs +11.5 and over 184 Lets go spurs

I like the Spurs with the points. Im clouded with emotion here as the Heat are my team. Hate to miss out on losing money and not backing the Spurs.
