(701) Miami vs. Boston (702) 7:00 PM | Thu, Sep 17 2020
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Total 207
Pick
Under 208.5 (-110) @ bet365

The set-up: Boston looked pretty good through three quarters, but the Heat hung around the entire time and as they've done so often in the bubble, they had a big fourth quarter and managed to tie it up and then win SU in overtime. While that contest was destined to fly "over" despite an OT frame, I think that Game 2 definitely sets up as more of a defensive affair. The Celtics are one of the best defensive clubs in the league and I simply can't see the Heat shooting 50 percent from range for a second straight contest.

The pick: Boston has seen the total go "under" in 11 of it slast 14 games, including in eight of then during the playoffs and I expect this now desparate defensive minded club to double down on that end of the court. Miami is adaptable team, if you want to "run and gun," it's able to do that, but it's just as comfortable running half court sets and full court pressure as well. This one has "under" written all over it in my opinion.

This is a 10* TOTAL BLOWOUT on the UNDER Heat/Celtics.

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.
