Last Chance to Bet on NBA FinalsPublished June 21, 2012 by OCR Editor
Bet now on Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Miami Heat have closed in on the NBA title, reaching a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven championship series. That means we are in the closing stages of the season, and this is close to your last chance to bet on the finals.
Finals So Far
Miami have won three straight games to go up three games to one in this series, and can close out the championship with a win at home at American Airlines Arena on Thursday night. However, LeBron James sat out the end of game four due to a leg injury, and if the Heat lose this next game they will have to travel back to Oklahoma for games six and seven.
Russell Westbrook came up massive for the Thunder in game 4, scoring 43 points, but it was not enough to get his team over the line. He and superstar Kevin Durant will have to play the best three games of their lives if they are to overcome LeBron, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and the Heat for the title.NBA Sports Betting
