So why do the Philadelphia 76ers vs Miami Heat Game 3 odds show you what team to bet on?
Public Pushing the Point spread
The Heat opened as (-1.5) point favorites, but the line is currently (-2) and that is because 85 percent of the money coming in on this game is on the Sixers. This is exactly what happened in game two and the Sixers lost outright. There has been so much money bet on the Sixers that the lines have moved 3 points. It is never good to be on the same side as the public and that is the case in game three.
Watch For Wade
Dwyane Wade realizes that this could be his last serious run in the playoffs. After scoring 28 points in game two, the Sixers will have to adjust to defend Wade. The Heat slowed down the pace and that is exactly what won this game. Can they do it again in game 3? The NBA odds say yes they can.
