5* Eastern Conference Semifinals Game of the Year on Heat -120
This is a "must win" game for the Heat, and I fully expect them to take care of business.
Miami is capable of playing lock-down defense, as we saw in the first two games of this series and the first half of Game 3. The issue has been its offense.
Miami's offensive struggles won't continue. These guys are too good. Dwayne Wade is coming off a forgettable performance and will be very focused here because of it. We can't forget that LeBron James and Wade have a lot more big game experience than this Indiana squad.
The Heat have been a team of response at 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a loss of more than 10 points. Also, plays on any team that is out for revenge for a road loss of 10 points or more to an opponent, provided it was upset by 15 points or more in its last game, are 29-9 ATS the last 5 seasons. We have seen the "play on" side win by an average of 3.3 points in this situation. Take Miami.
