Here's hoping that what happens in Vegas comes true for San Antonio.

In the world's gaming mecca, the money is on the Spurs to beat the Detroit Pistons by 5 points in Game 7 of the NBA Finals tonight.

The winner-take-all game tips off at 8 p.m. at the SBC Center.

The 800 available tickets sold out in three minutes Wednesday afternoon, but the game can be seen on ABC affiliate KSAT.

Before the Finals began, the Spurs were a nearly 3:1 favorite the odds of a Spurs victory now is 2:1, according to Chuck Esposito, assistant vice president at Caesars Palace, whose job as odds maker sets the sports book at five Nevada casinos.

Within hours of the Pistons winning the NBA Championship last year, the Spurs were named the favorite, at 4:1 odds, to win this year's title, while Detroit had 8:1 odds.
