Bet on the Boston Celtics at -7.5
In the favor of the Heat, G Malcolm Brogdon of the Celtics will probably not play tonight. He was unable to play last Saturday and it is questionable if he will play tonight.
We expect this game to also go down to the wire as on paper, both teem seem to be evenly matched. However, the Celtics have been outscoring the Heat by 10.5 points per 100 possessions across three straight wins. Therefore, we predict the Boston Celtics will win and cover the spread with a final score of 108-95
