Seriously kids. I have looked everywhere I know to look. Every book that is posting a line (and some still aren't despite all other Saturday lines being out for hours) is showing Miami -1.
I follow this sort of thing pretty closely and can say with some confidence that the blind line on this game should be around Miami -5. That would be a neutral court with no injuries. So Miami -1 makes sense since we are playing at the-artist-formerly-known-as-RBC with no injuries.
What's that you say? Oh yeah, well there might be one minor injury.
So what the heck is going on here? Two theories, each one as baseless as the next:
1. The oddsmakers are unaware of the possibility that Zo may be hurt.
2. The oddsmakers know that Zo is going to play and is 100%.
Sure, could be another reason, Illuminati and what not, but by money is with #2. But only because I so desperately want it to be true and because #1 is unpossible.
