Celtics vs Heat Betting Picks truly have taken on a form that few could have expected. However, Miami, like the Florida Panthers of the NHL, has gone on an incredible run. Can Boston mount anything to prevent a sweep from happening? MyBookie Vegas online betting sportsbook looks at some choices in this Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final.
Celtics vs Heat Picks taught us some lessons to never forget. Again, this is because few pundits expected Boston to lie down in this way. Let’s face facts. The Boston Celtics flat-out went belly up on Sunday night. It was embarrassing in any form. They were down 15 at halftime. That was a bad enough deficit. Naturally, Miami comes right out and scores 15 of the first 17 second-half points. Simply, game over!
Before the fourth quarter, where Boston managed 39 points, the Celtics had 63 after 36 minutes. That is not even a bucket a minute. It’s a pace that comes out to 84. Yikes! Every single time Boston looks to have an answer, Erik Spoelstra and company change strategy and put the Celtics in an even worse bind. Getting out-coached and outplayed remains a recipe for failure in these playoffs.
So, can Boston mount any kind of comeback? At first, this sounds crazy. Honestly, the answer is still no. It is hard to expect a blowout in Game 4. The problem comes down to the crucial points in these games. Boston does not have the answers, while Miami does. During the first two games in the series, there were times when Boston figured they had a shot. Spoelstra made the right adjustments while Joe Mazzulla (Boston coach) has not.
Yes, Miami could lose Game 4 even. Before going nuts with too many reasons why, it is the NBA Playoffs. However, with Boston players almost having the “1-2-3-Cancun Philosophy” at this point, can they turn it around even once? Okay, that is a tough sell, and hey, Miami is only laying 1.5 points. For those wondering, they were still getting 3.5 points for Game 3. Miami has been an incredible ATS in these playoffs since Round 1.
Alright, the Celtics vs Heat Betting Picks call the offense on board. On Sunday, we saw 230 points combined and that 74-point fourth quarter was quite a boost. The chances of seeing a crooked quarter like that are possible again on Tuesday night. Keep in mind, the momentum generated by Miami has been sustained by two things — their free-throw shooting and three-point shooting.
At Vegas Betting, we ponder the expected frenetic pace in Miami. We believe Erik Spoelstra may even have to reel some of his players in early. That is because Boston is going to try anything and everything to play up-tempo. Now, the Celtics’ defense has been poor all series long. Unless Miami goes ice cold, that expects to change little. In three games, Miami is shooting 47.8% from beyond the arc and 84.7% from the line.
Naturally, Boston has never truly adapted, and Miami continues to get easy enough looks. They were an issue for large stretches of the Sixers series too. Boston and Miami are two divergent teams. While the Heat are completely in sync, Boston is out of sorts. Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum are not playing like the duo most expected during this round. To think, the Celtics were a -525 series favorite before the Eastern Conference Final started.
NBA online betting sites love the over here because again Boston has to make more shots at some point. The other sobering fact is that Jimmy Butler did not make a single three in Game 3. That is a sign when Gabe Vincent leads all scorers with 29 points. Boston had 20+ offensive rebounds. Expect more shots to drop. The Celtics vs Heat Picks like running with the over on Tuesday night.
The Celtics vs Heat picks always enjoy the prop section? So, with props, options abound unexpectedly, along with some alternative game and player props alike. Just wait until we get to the NBA Finals props sometime next week. Okay, okay, there is a chance that even the bettors are getting a little ahead of themselves.
NBA online prop bets strive to be a little off the beaten path. Again, are we going to see Jayson Tatum lead all players with ten rebounds again? That answer is probably no. However, his rebound prop paid off handsomely. Bookies got wise to this and boosted it up to 10.5. However, Bam Adebayo at 9.5 (-106) is one to consider. Adebayo could get 10+ rebounds on Tuesday. He had 17 in Game 2 and had 8+ rebounds in nearly every playoff game.
Do not fret, for there are more props. Bam Adebayo and Miami to win makes for an interesting player performance double at +234. Conversely, Jayson Tatum to score over 30 and Boston to win stands at +206. Sadly, there are no Caleb Martin three-point props, but Gabe Vincent to make three at +106 is there.
Here at VegasBetting, do not forget who will face Denver. As hard as it is to believe, the NBA Finals may see two well-rested teams.
