The current NBA Odds have the Celtics as -3 point favorites with the over/under at 213.5 points. The betting public has 53% of their money on the Heat as underdogs.

Miami comes into this game off a huge game 4 win, 112-109 against the Celtics where Tyler Herro was the real hero, going 14 of 21 from the field and dropping 37 total points. Tyler Herro and Magic Johnson are the only two rookies in NBA history to score at least 35 points to go along with 5 rebounds and 3 assists. Bam Adebayo put up 20 and 12, but injured his wrist in the final minutes of the game, but most likely will play in this matchup. We cashed in big for any of you guys who followed the player prop on the over 19.5 points for Jimmy Butler. We don’t think this kind of team ball and numbers will carry over in this Game 5 matchup and Boston should be able to grab the early lead and keep it throughout the game.

Miami is 11-2 against the spread in their last 13 games and the total has gone over in 7 of the Heats’ last 10 games when playing as the underdog.

Boston comes into this game now down 3-1 in the series and in a win or go home scenario. They shot 47% from the field in game 4 but tried to play catch up every quarter. Jayson Tatum went scoreless in the entire first half, but then had a huge second half dropping 28 points. This go around that bad early start shouldn’t be case and we’ll most likely be on his total points players prop in this game if the line is right, so comment below so you can get access to it. Marcus Smart should also step it up after just going 3 of 12 shooting for 10 points total.

Boston is 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 games against Miami and the total has gone under in 12 of the Celtics last 17 games.

The best opportunity to make money on this Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics Game 5 matchup is to buy a point and roll with the Celtics -2 points at the -130 price.
