Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs
The Miami Heat head home to try and force a Game 7 against the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night. The Heat are -7 point favorites over the Spurs with an over/under point total set at 190.
The Heat are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games following a S.U. loss and 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games following a ATS loss. The Spurs on the other hand are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 NBA Championship game, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
This series is destined to go to a Game 7, but can Miami cover the seven point spread? Recent history would suggest yes as 11 of their 14 postseason victories thus far have been by double digits, telling us that when the Heat win, they win big.
I’m trying to look for reasons as to why I should take the Spurs in Game 6, but I just can’t. Everything is pointing towards Miami and I could just see another one of these games stay close for the first half, then the home team goes on a run (Miami), which then turns into a blowout. I dunno, this might be the close battle we all expect, but I doubt it.
