NBA Finals 2011 Betting - Don’t Mess With Texas

One thing online sports betting enthusiasts can take from the NBA Finals this season is that the Dallas Mavericks are one excellent team against the spread.

They were 4 of 6 against the number vs. Miami and one game they only lost by half a point.

For the entire playoffs, Dallas was awesome. They had to play 21 games to win the championship and they failed to cover only 4 games.

That’s consistency and talent.

The other thing the Finals brought out about this beautiful game of basketball is that the game is not about one guy.

Last year Kobe had a horrible shooting game in the last game of the Finals but his teammates picked him up and they won the whole thing.

On Sunday night, Dirk Nowitzki was only 9 for 27 from the floor but recently inserted new starter Jose Barea chipped in with 15 and Jason Terry led everybody on the court with 27 off the pine.

Dirk scored 18 of his total in the second half and you knew that would happen because he had been unguardable basically all online casino post season.

What made this sportsbook promo win by Dallas so impressive is that all the talking heads had them gone in the first round vs. Portland. They not only came back and won that series after losing a huge lead; they beat the defending champion Lakers and the up and coming Oklahoma Thunder.

For those that live in the Sunshine State, take heart in knowing that the Miami Heat will be back.

This is likely the worst team they will field with the Big Three of LeBron, D. Wade and Chris Bosh.

They have some cap space and hopefully there will be no work stoppage in the league.

Their holes are obvious. They need a center that can score some as Joel Anthony is young and game but he has no range.

They badly need a point guard and although Mario Chalmers played well in the series, he is probably not the answer.

Next year Miami will be able to grow from this defeat and one of the best things they could do is to stop taking things personally.

Everything is not about how much people dislike Miami, but about performing on the court.

Dallas should be quite fine moving forward because with a guy like Dirk, you are going to win 50 plus games a year and put your team in the position to succeed in June.

Have a good summer; see you at the tip off in the fall.
