The excitement of the NBA Finals is just beginning to build as the scene shifts to Miami for game three on Tuesday night. With the series knotted at one game apiece, the Heat and the Spurs are showing the world why these are two of the best franchises in the league over the past five-plus years. With Miami playing at home we like them to win game three and take a 2-1 lead over San Antonio in the Finals.

Heat pumped to play in front of home crowd

Miami was close to unbeatable at home during the regular season, losing just nine games all year. In the playoffs, the Heat have yet to lose a game this year, making things much more difficult for the Spurs on Tuesday night. Miami will need to come out of the gate much better than they did in game two if they want to win this contest. Falling behind early and getting off to a slow start will not suffice tonight.

Spurs ready for a lengthy series that is just getting started

San Antonio knows that even if they had won game two and taken a 2-0 lead that the series would have been far from over. With the series now tied at one, the Spurs still have a lot of work to do if they want to take down the Heat for the league crown and end their reign as two-time champions. The Spurs will need to take advantage of all the opportunities presented to them in tonight’s game.

The oddsmakers from have the Heat as home chalk by 4.5 points since they won game two and are playing at home in game three. We are going to drop 10 percent of our bankroll on the Heat and the -190 money line as they take a 2-1 lead over San Antonio in the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.
