NBA Betting: Matchups To Watch in The NBA Finals

2011 NBA Finals Odd s- Mavericks vs. HeatThere is still some time for online Belmont betting as the final jewel in horse racing’s Triple Crown isn’t until June 11th, and the NBA Finals will garner a lot of attention as there are a number of stars on deck to battle for the title. Here are four aspects to watch in this rematch of the 2006 Finals

Dirk Nowitzki vs. LeBron James

James shut down MVP Derrick Rose in late-game situations during their series with Chicago, and he’ll likely draw the same assignment on Nowitzki, who has been the best offensive player in the playoffs. Nowitzki can drive by bigger defenders and shoot over small defenders, and while he has a height advantage on James, the Miami star has the athleticism to counter that. Whoever wins this clash of former MVPs, will likely give their team a great chance to win.

The Battle At The Point

You should get a sports betting bonus if you guessed that Jason Kidd (1994 draft) and Mike Bibby (1998 draft) are still integral parts of potential title teams, but Kidd is still one of the top floor generals in the league, while Bibby can hit outside shots when left open. Mario Chalmers and J.J. Barea are the young legs who bring energy and youth to the position for the Heat and Mavericks, respectively, and this is going to be an intriguing matchup to watch over the course of the series.

The Benches

Miami is essentially known as a three-man team with James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, with some role players mixed in, and their bench has been helped by the return of Udonis Haslem, who will guard Nowitzki at some points. Dallas can go nine deep and two of the top five scorers, Barea and Jason Terry, come off the bench. If the Mavericks can win this matchup, they’ll aid their chances in your sports bookie software.

The Officials

Officiating is the main thing that people remember from those 2006 Finals, when the Heat had a tremendous advantage at the foul line; Wade went to the charity stripe 46 times over the last two games of the series on his own. The Heat are going to get calls with Wade, James and Bosh leading the way, and they’re averaging almost four more trips to the foul line per game than the Mavericks. Dallas has to try and limit the chances the referees have to call fouls on them, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be physical with the Heat. All they can do is play within the rules of the game, and if the foul calls get out of hand, it’ll be seen. Hopefully, the refs won’t have a major outcome on the result in your sports book.
