The final week of the NFL preseason is now upon us and Week 4 has traditionally gone to the dogs. Underdogs have been the way to go in the final exhibition game, as underdogs are 85-68-7 (55.6%) in all games since 2003 and 42-33-5 (56%) over the past five seasons.
Miami suddenly finds itself in an early must-win situation in these NBA Finals after getting routed 113-77 on Tuesday night as a two-point road underdog in Game 3. It now trails the Spurs two games to one heading into Thursday’s crucial Game 4.
The Oklahoma City Thunder begins life without Russell Westbrook when they visit the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series. Game time is 9:30 PM ET at the Toyota Center in Houston. The Thunder opened as a -5 point favorite but the number has dropped to -1 because of the injury to Westbrook. The total opened at 211.5 and is now 207.5 meaning that Westbrook is worth four points.
The Houston Rockets will try to avoid digging a 2-0 hole in their series with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. Houston was dominated 120-91 by Oklahoma City in Game One. The Rockets shot only 36 percent, and they were never really in the game. Will this one be any closer or will the Thunder roll to another victory?
The Spurs snapped a rare two-game skid with a lopsided 98-84 romp over Orlando on Wednesday night as 12.5-point home favorites. They are now 7-3 straight-up in their last 10 games but a costly 3-7 against the spread. The total has stayed UNDER in five of their last six games.
