Score: 98 - 100
Total: -110/+188 Under
Heat & Celtics under 188
The Boston Celtics host the Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon. Boston is coming off a 123-111 overtime loss in Atlanta, while Miami beat Detroit their last time out, 110-88.
The Heat have been underwhelming on the road this season to say the least. The team is just 10-9 away from home, and they’ll be playing in a very hostile environment in Boston on Sunday afternoon.
Day games haven’t been particularly kind to the Heat either, with Dwayne Wade taking the biggest hit, averaging 2.3 fewer assists per game and 5.4 fewer points per game, with his field goal percentage dropping 12.1 percentage points in the daytime.
The Celtics have clamped down on the defensive end at home of late, getting back to the formula that saw them win the NBA Championship in 2008. The last seven teams to travel to Boston have averaged 85.9 points per game in regulation, with none of those teams eclipsing 91 points in the first 48 minutes.
Even still, the Celtics have dropped six straight games overall, scoring an average of just 88.0 regulation points in those six games.
The under is 7-1 in the last eight games played at the TD Bank Garden. Take the UNDER.
