NBA Finals Online Betting - The Format

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/6/2014 9:47:41 PM

Like the weather in Colorado, where they say if you don’t like it wait for a few minutes, so has gone the online sports betting NBA Finals as games have online betting enthusiasts shaking their heads because the games change drastically from one day to another.

First off, the 2-3-2 format of the Finals is old, unfair and has no business in the game at this point in time.

The teams now playing have already established themselves as the last standing and when they are this well matched, it is nearly impossible for one team to beat another in three consecutive games.

This is the 27th season the 2-3-2 format has been utilized and only 2 times in the prior 26 has the host team won all three games.

So far, what has looked like the online casino wagering strength of one team has become the other.

Miami was supposed to have the vaulted defense, but they could not score in the second game late and could not stop Dallas either as they went on a crazy 17-2 run to win it.

Dallas was supposed to have the better bench, but Miami’s reserves outscored them by 10 in the first game of the series.

Miami blew a golden opportunity by losing the second game. In the history of the NBA, only 3 teams have comeback to win the Finals after going down 2-0.

In the Thursday loss, Miami shot 30 three pointers, something that is totally unlike them as a team. Any casual hoop fan knew that would not repeat itself and it did not on Sunday as the Heat went to the rack with a vengeance attacking the hole almost every time.

D. Wade of Miami had this to say to Yahoo Sports, Wade: “I took it upon myself as a leader to try to lead my guys by example. I was very aggressive going to the hole practicing. My teammates seen it. They can tell that I wanted this game and I came in with the same mentality today.”

It was vintage Wade and that is not likely to change.

When Miami shot from the outside they did it better than Dallas on Sunday and they were a plus 18 in points in the paint.

To add fuel to the Miami freight train, since they went to the 2-3-2 format in 1985, when a series was tied 1-1 going into the third game, the winner of that third game has won all 11 times the situation presented itself.

For that very reason, and even though Dallas played well in defeat on Sunday, just can’t see Miami taking its foot off the gas.

Tuesday’s game in Dallas should be another sportsbook promo barnburner. Dirk Nowitzki needs help from somebody in order to win this series. Only two other Mavericks had double figures to go along with Dirk’s 34.

Miami has lived on the free throw line during the playoffs and they know they have to continue to rock the rim to win.

Again, they are a 2 and a half point pup on Thursday and would expect much of the same as the Sunday game with everybody aggressive in the paint.

Take the points in a game where again, Miami could win outright.
