With the NBA’s Eastern and Western Conference Finals in full swing how are the odds makers looking at the teams? In the East Miami has a 2-1 game lead over Indiana after coming back from a 15 point deficit in Game 3 to win.

In the West San Antonio has a commanding 2-0 lead over Oklahoma City. The Spurs beat the Thunder in Game 1 by 17 points and in Game 2 by 35 points, Game 3 is tonight (Sunday, May 25th) the overall odds favor San Antonio to get back to the NBA Finals this year.

The Miami Heat are the next highest in the odds makers minds to make to the Finals this year and with their 2-1 lead over Indiana and home court advantage, the odd have gone higher.

If the Heat and Spurs follow the odds maker’s predictions it would be a rematch of last year’s finals where Miami beat San Antonio 4 games to 3 after the Spurs led the series 3-2.

Indiana is in the third spot as far as odds are concerned to make it to the NBA Finals and coming in last is Oklahoma City who’s top defensive player may be out for the series.  The Thunders Serge Ibaka was list as doubtful for the series but has been upgraded to day to day. With his defensive shot blocking ability and overall defensive presence, the Thunder could increase their odds.
