The Miami Heat can make it a four-game sweep this Sunday as they look to close the books on their first-round matchup with the New York Knicks and get ready for Round 2. There’s a reason they’ve topped the NBA betting line all season long and we’re seeing it in full force.
Over the course of Games 1 through 3, the Heat have made short work of their opponents – most recently in an 87-70 victory at Madison Square Garden. Can the Knicks win back their honor and extend the series to at least five?
According to Bovada’s NBA odds, the Heat are betting line favorites in a class of their own. With few teams even close to their level on the futures list, they’re a hard team to vote against.
Perhaps more pressing than concern over their inevitable victory over the Knicks is what comes next for Miami. With Derrick Rose out for the No. 1 seed Chicago Bulls, is there any team in the Eastern Conference that could even hope to challenge them in a seven-game series? In the West?
They may see resistance in the form of the endlessly youthful Oklahoma City Thunder at some point, or even the crafty San Antonio Spurs, but this kind of looks to be the year they come through on their promise. Of course last year did too.
