The Los Angeles Lakers will be heavy favorites to win the NBA Finals however the underdog Miami Heat will offer some value. While we may ultimately side with the Lakers to win the gold, we’re siding with Miami to spring the mild upset in Game 1 as the two teams sort themselves out.
Most bettors will side with Lebron James and the all-star Lakers team to take the upstart Miami Heat to task. After all, the Heat weren’t even supposed to make it this far. Ranked 5th in the Eastern Conference, they had to knock off the Indiana Pacers (whom they swept), the number 1 ranked Milwaukee Bucks, (whom they almost swept) and the Boston Celtics, who they defeated 4 games to 2. In each instance, the Heat won not only Game 1 of the series, but Game 2 as well,
The number 1 ranked Lakers on the other hand have lost Game 1 in two of their last three series. When facing the Portland Trailblazers, a team the Lakers were supposed to steamroll, the Lakers took some time to get going after losing Game 1, they won the next 4. From there they went on to face the Houston Rockets where the same thing happened. Game 1, Houston came out on top 112-97 before the Lakers roared back to win the next four. The Denver Nuggets were the only team the Lakers actually defeated in Game 1 but with the fire Miami has been playing with, we like the Heat to once again make the Lakers losers in Game 1 to spice up an NBA Finals most people think is a foregone conclusion.
