Heat Enter NBA Finals As Odds-On Betting Favorite ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>

The Miami Heat stamped their ticket to the NBA Finals with a Game 5 win over the Chicago Bulls last Thursday and now have their eyes set on a rematch of the 2006 championship series.
The last time the two teams met, Dwyane Wade led the Heat over the Dallas Mavericks in six games. Now, however, a more experienced and even more determined Dirk Nowitzki seeks vengeance.
How will it all play out? Bet on the NBA Finals with Bodog.
Though Miami may have had a dominant Shaquille OâNeal in their line up the last time they fought for the Larry OâBrien Trophy, this time around they have former two-time MVP LeBron James.
Ever since it was announced last summer that James – along with All-Star forward Chris Bosh – would join Wade in South Beach, the team has been pegged as a title favorite. Though their regular season campaign had its ups and downs, thereâs no denying the potential the star-studded roster has shown over the course of this postseason.
After a brief adjustment following a Game 1 loss to the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Heat showed an unparalleled dominance over the remainder of the series. Do the Mavericks even stand a chance?
The Miami Heat are listed as -4.5 favorites in Game 1 and have long had the advantage in long term futures play. Provided the club can keep getting production from the Big Three and a reasonable presence from the rest of their shallow roster, a championship is well within reach.
