NBA | Heat vs. Lakers
Play on: Heat +175 at Mirage

Wednesday NBA Free play. My selection is on Miami (moneyline) over Los Angeles at 9 pm et on Wednesday.

Ordinarily I would say the underdog Heat might be in for a bit of a letdown here after an extended layoff (by ‘bubble’ standards) following their series-clinching win over the Celtics – a series victory that came much easier than most expected. However, it won’t be difficult at all for Miami to get up for this Finals showdown with Lebron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers. Rather than grab the relatively short number of points, I’ll go straight to the generous moneyline price with Miami here as I believe it has an excellent shot at winning this game outright. The Lakers drew a favorable matchup with the ‘Cinderella’ Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals but aren’t as fortunate here. The Heat match up well and I look for them to gain the upper hand in Game 1 on Wednesday night. Take Miami moneyline (8*).

Sean is coming off a 2-0 MLB SWEEP yesterday and now riding a 71-55 (+$1012) MLB run!
