Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat Game 3 Prediction

The Heat have had two great games from all-star guard Jimmy Butler. Butler turned in yet another forty-point game to start this series and will look to run back a similar performance tonight. The star for the Celtics in this series has been Jayson Tatum to no surprise. The role players for the Celtics really stepped up in game two, and the return of Marcus Smart and Al Horford really helped the Celtics. Smart and Horford missed game one, which was a killer for the Celtics.

The Heat took advantage of that in game one. The Heat also had to deal with an injury to one of their most important players in PJ Tucker. Tucker is a hard-nosed player who plays with a ton of energy and has won a championship before. If Tucker can not go tonight, that would be a big blow for this Miami team. The Celtics did their job by stealing a game in Miami, and now they have home-court advantage in this series. The Celtics are a six-point favorite for this game tonight. 

I will back the Celtics tonight on the -6 spread. I think this line is pretty telling as the Celtics were dogs in games one and two, and now they are a six-point favorite. I said prior to the series that there is a large talent gap between these two teams, and I believe that will be the case for the rest of this series. The Celtics have taken out the Heat's role players so far in this series, and really, outside of Jimmy Butler, no one on the Heat has stepped up in this series. The Heat role players have played much worse on the road so far this series, and I think that will be the case again tonight.

Bet $10, Win $200 if EITHER TEAM hits a 3-Pointer in Celtics vs Heat

The Status of PJ Tucker and Kyle Lowry is something to Keep an eye on as well as the Heat could be down two staters for this game. They are also two guys with championship DNA that are leaders on this team. The Celtics should be fully healthy tonight as guard Derick White is expected to return for the game tonight. I love this spot for Boston tonight. Let’s stay red hot on the hardwood!
