76ers vs. Heat Game 1 (5/2/22) NBA Picks, Predictions, and Player Prop Bets

76ers vs. Heat Game 1 on Monday, May 2, 2022 Playoffs Eastern Conference Semifinals NBA Picks, Predictions, and Player Prop Bets.

76ers vs Heat Game 1 Preview: 

This Eastern Conference Semifinals Game 1 between the Philadelphia 76ers vs Miami Heat will tipoff on Monday, May 2, 2022 at 7:30pm et at the FTX arena in Miami.

The NBA Odds have the Heat as a -7.5 point favorite against the spread and the over/under at 208.5 points.

63% of the betting public currently have their money behind Miami as the home favorite.

Betting on the Philadelphia 76ers: 

Philadelphia won’t have their best player on the floor, Joel Embiid for games 1 or 2 of this series due to the right orbital bone fracture he suffered during their Game 6 win over the Raptors on Thursday.

With Embiid out, you should see veteran Center DeAndre Jordan and second year player Paul Reed matchup against Bam Adebayo. Joel Embiid averaged 23.7 points and 13.7 rebounds in the 3 games he’s played against the Heat this season, so that type of offensive production will need to be made up by the trifecta of James Harden, Tobias Harris, and Tyrese Maxey.

My 1-Unit Monday Night NBA Player Prop Bet is on James Harden to go over 25 points at the -115 price. If you want free access to this NBA Player Prop that I’ll be doubling down on tonight, just text “prop” directly to 702-234-0597 and I’ll reply back with this 2-Unit move.

Betting on the Miami Heat: 

The Heat come into game with a huge question marks due to all the injuries they’re dealing with. Kyle Lowry has been ruled out. Jimmy Butler is currently listed as questionable, but he did participate in practice over the weekend, so things are looking very promising that he’ll be able to start this Game 1.

Tyler Herro is dealing with a respiratory illness, but he should also get the start.

Lastly, Caleb Martin and PJ Tucker are both listed as questionable.

NBA Picks & Predictions: 

In this Warriors vs Grizzlies Game 1 on Sunday, I’m taking the Grizzlies Team Total to go Over 108.5 points and laying the -130 price.
