Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Game 2: 71% of Bets Are on the Celtics to Pull off the Upset

In Game 1 of the Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics series, we saw the home team come out victorious as Miami won 118-107. Miami's Jimmy Buttler was a force offensively scoring 41 points with nine rebounds and five assists to go along with his impressive scoring touch. The Celtics struggled to contain him which is the main reason they were unable to come out with the victory.

For the Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Game 2, Boston will need a bounce-back performance all around to get back in this series. Can the Celtics pull off the upset? The betting public seems to think so. Let's hop into the Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Game 2 odds.

If so, as we mentioned up top they are going to have to do a better job of shutting down Jimmy Buttler while continuing to get the strong play from Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. During the regular season, Boston was 2-1 against Miami. Despite Miami finishing with the better record and the Game 1 win, I think even the Heat know that they can't sleep on this Boston team. Expect this to be a deep series, and it's easy to see why the betting public is riding with the road dogs here in Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Game 2.
