How can you come on this thread and in big bold letters say MIAMI WILL DESTROY PORTLAND?

POR will be a defensive nighmare for a team who has been playing terrible basketball as of late. POR has the "better" bigs [there not good but they are better] BETTER PG AND BETTER CENTER. With the exception of Wade playing well his last game you can cancel the SG position with the way MIA has been playing defence. POR plays really well at home.

taking points as a home dog to a struggling team

VEGAS MAKES THERE MONEY OF RETARDS LIKE HIM. Heat lost to bucks, pistons, and pacers on the rd. But it seems the gambling gods have cursed me. If i take the Blazers tonight the heat will have the game of the year. so, i will lay off this one so the Blazers will win.

Great point my friend.  The Heat are really tough to figure out from a capping perspective.  Ive managed to do pretty well on them this year going selectively, but I couldn't dodge the bullet in Milwaukee.

As far as capping this game goes, im just gonna ignore the "MIA"  as just act as if it's a typical road favorite that is bolstered by public perception/dollars...And side with the strong home dog, backed by 30% consensus and cash in on that Reverse Line Movement .
Could be cruising for a bruising if the Heat show up
HOWEVER, Portland is red hot, should dominate the paint and get another W in the Rose Garden where they are a force to be reckoned with.  Best of Luck to those who wager on EL HEAT, but the Blazers are the only move in this one. 
Just remember, "Winter is Coming."

I wouldn't be so bold with my prediction but I would be willing to say that the heat cover 3 handily in all caps. As Portland does play well at home. So do the combo of Wade and James lighting up the scoreboard in the two games they've played together out there. Last time out there the heat were riding an eight game winning streak (7-1ats) as still were only laying 3.5 in Portland. 38 from James and 33 from Wade. The game was never in doubt and the Heat covered easily. And I promise you that the public was all over the Heat in that contest as well. I think the Rose Garden is exactly what the docter ordered for Lebron and co.

Are the books maybe keeping balanced the other two games on the board with back and forth half-point movements because unsure of their outcome and therefore breaking even, but collecting on a Miami loss? Tempted to take Blazers ml, but i'll stay at the end and capping on Indiana -5. If Portland wins i'll regret, but i won't lose either. BOL to all.
