NBA Championship Odds and Picks: Nuggets vs Heat Game 5 Prediction

There are countless cliches to be found in the world of sports, but there is a little ring of truth to each of them. One of those cliches suggests that the hardest game to win is the one that clinches a championship. It certainly is tough for any team to get that all-decisive win, but it certainly helps when the team in question has multiple opportunities to win that final game. That is where we are at with the Denver Nuggets, who head home on Monday night with a 3-1 lead in their series against the Miami Heat and a chance to close things out in their own building. There are plenty of reasons to assume Monday night will be the end, with the Nuggets in as a 9-point favorite in Game 5 and NBA odds, but can the Heat find a way to stay alive?

Where: Ball Arena, Denver


Why bet on the Miami Heat

People have been doubting the Heat right from the start of the playoffs, with the majority believing that there is no way a play-in team could make it all the way to an NBA Championship. Even after blowing out the Milwaukee Bucks in 5 games in Round 1, the doubters remained. When they went on to beat the Knicks in 6, the feeling was that the blowout would come in the Eastern Conference Final against the Boston Celtics. Miami shut out the chatter, opened up a 3-game lead before losing 3 in a row, only to dig deep and come away with the win in Game 7. Their magic carried on over into the Finals, with the Heat handing the Nuggets their first loss at home in the playoffs to get the split and head home. The bad news is that they lost both games in their own building and now look to be in serious trouble.

Why bet on the Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are one win away from making some history, as this would be the first ever championship for this franchise. Like the old cliché says, though, that final win is very often the toughest to come by. The Nuggets will be more than aware of that, which is why they are sure to be locked in and ready to take advantage of the home court that has served them so well this postseason. The Nuggets have never really looked in any real danger during these playoffs, not even when they dropped that first home game against the Heat. They adjusted, went on the road, and won both games in Miami to give themselves a shot at winning it all in front of their own fans on Monday night. Tough to bet against them when playing at home.

Expert Pick and Series Prediction

I hate to keep harping on the same point, but the Denver Nuggets have made it to this point of the playoffs with just 1 loss in their own building. Yes. That loss came at the hands of the Heat, but do we really think they will lose 2 more at home? I think they close things out tonight.
