Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Loss (-880) - Final Total 254
Pick
Under 220.5 (-110) @ bet365

I'm playing on Boston/Miami UNDER the total. These teams, which clashed with each other in the playoffs last year, have met just once this season. That game produced just 212 points. They'll play again Tuesday. I'm expecting another low-scoring affair this afternoon. The Celtics managed only 99 points last game, after allowing just 96 in their previous game. The Heat have been playing some fairly stingy defense of their own. They've held six of their last seven opponents to 112 or less. At 107.6 ppg allowed, the Heat are fourth in the NBA (2nd in the East) in terms of points allowed. They allow even less (106) on the road. The Celtics rank 11th, with 111 ppg allowed. That number dips to 110 here at home though. I think the number is generously high (Its a higher O/U line than the O/U lines from nine of Miami's last 10 games) and I look for this one to prove lower-scoring than many will be expecting.

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.
