Pick
Over 218 (-108) @ Betamerica

I'm playing on Indiana/Miami OVER the total. These teams just faced each other. They'll face each other again in the playoffs. There's the bad blood between Butler and Warren. There's the #4 and #5 seed on the line. You'd think this would be a big game, right? Its not. Most of the starters won't play and the 4 vs. 5 spot is meaningless. As Pacers coach Nat McMillan noted: "It's just a different situation. It's no home court in the sense of you having your fan base, sleeping in your bed, there's none of that." For me, I say that leads to very little defensive intensity. The backups/reserves can and will still score and will be happy to make the most of their opportunity. Its the lowest O/U line on the board but I expect a relatively high-scoring affair.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
