Sportsbooks All Over Today’s Game 7s

Updated:

There’s not one but two NBA Game 7s today and sportsbooks everywhere are salivating at the thoughts of their take today. There has been plenty of hype surrounding both series that will play their final games today. New York is at Indiana at 3:30 p.m. and Minnesota plays in Denver tonight with game time at 8:00 p.m.

Sportsbooks have made both home teams the favorite. The Knicks are a 3.5-point favorite over the Pacers, despite getting beat by Indiana 116-103 on Friday night. That’s because all six games in this series have been won by the home team.

Denver hosts Minnesota in Game 7 tonight.

Denver is a 4.5-point favorite against Minnesota tonight. Sportsbooks like Denver at home even though the Nuggets lost Games 1 and 2 at home this series. Sportsbooks also know that home teams win the majority of Game 7s in the NBA playoffs.

In the history of the NBA, there have been 149 playoff series that have gone to a deciding seventh game. Only 37 times has the road team come away with a win. That means home teams win Game 7 over 75 percent of the time. Surely, that factors into what sportsbooks are thinking when they set lines and odds for these games.
