(NBA) Boston vs. Miami, 05/19/2022 8:30 PM, Score: 127 - 102
Total: 208.00 | -110.00 Under
Result: Loss
I'm playing on Boston/Miami UNDER the total. While I backed the Heat in Game 1, I feel that the value lies with the total for Game 2. As you probably saw, the opener was relatively high-scoring. The UNDER is still 8-3-1 in Miami playoff games. The UNDER was a perfect 3-0 after the previous three (the two 'unders' and the push) which didn't fall below the total. Off their most recent 'over,' the Heat allowed just 85 points in their next game. Off their previous 'over,' the they scored just 79 in their next game. The Celtics, for their part, have seen the UNDER go 7-3 the past 10 times that they were off a double-digit loss. The last time that they were off a d.d. loss, they responded by allowing only 86 points their next time out, a game which stayed below the total by roughly 20 points. Look for this one to also prove lower-scoring than many will be expecting, the UNDER improving to 6-2-1 the past nine, when the Heat were leading in a playoff series.
