The Celtics shot 46 percent from the field and just hauled in 37 rebounds.

Boston Celtics vs Miami Heat Betting Picks
The Celtics split their last 10 games at 5-5, while the Heat are 6-4 over that stretch. Legal betting sites are anticipating a close match-up in South Beach, making sure the spread is as close as possible in the event of a tight ball game.
Moneyline: Pick the Heat at -155. I like Miami’s chances against Boston at home. They are 21-2 at triple-A and Butler is set for a big night since Tatum will likely sit more games with a groin injury.
ATS: Bet on the Heat to cover the 1-point spread. Since the spread is adjusted this close, the winner will also cover the spread. In this case, it’s the Heat.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 216.5 points. The Celtics are one of the top defensive teams in the league, but allowing the Pelicans to score 123 points means their defense is slipping.
Score Prediction: 116 – 111 Heat
