The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs will clash later tonight in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The Spurs took Game 1 of the series in a closely contested game, while LeBron James and the Heat imposed their wills on the Spurs to take Game 2 in what turned out to be a laughter.

Will the Spurs be able to compose themselves for Game 3 tonight? Given the strength of their coaching and their overall experience, you would have to think so.

Let's look at the current odds for tonight's game:

Miami Heat, +2, -115
San Antonio Spurs, -2, -105

If you wanted to place a bet on the team that will win the game straight up, here are your odds:

Miami Heat, +110
San Antonio Spurs, -130

According to these odds, a $100 wager on the Heat would yield a total profit of $110, while a successful $130 bet on the Spurs would return a total profit of $100.

The bookmakers are essentially saying that this game is a virtual coinflip, with the Spurs VERY slight favorites to win.

LeBron James has been content in this series to let his teammates make the big shots, while James acts as the facilitator.

This strategy did not work in Game 1, but worked wonders in Game 2. The key? LeBron's teammates were making shots.

This series is a chess match, and it will be interesting to see the adjustments that both teams make tonight.
