Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics 1/10/2021 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat has been on a see-saw ride alternating wins and losses for their first ten matches. They intend to get into their first back-to-back wins of the season after prevailing over the Washington Wizards in their most recent game. They won over a Wizards team without Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal but a win is a win. Jimmy Butler led the Heat charge flirting with a triple-double of 26 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists but the best scorer of the team was Tyler Herro with 31 points. The team just needs to be consistent and needs Bam Adebayo and Duncan Robinson to fill up their roles well.

Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics are not just hit by the injury bug, they are also stuck with the pandemic as well. Jayson Tatum has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and other key rotation players such as Tristan Thompson, Jaylen Brown and five others will be held out of this game to quarantine. Danny Theis and Marcus Smart are now expected to play heavy minutes and this could be a good chance for Payton Pritchard to show what he can do with the situation. Tako Fall should be in the game as well with veteran Jeff Teague. This should be another loss for the Celtics but it has some upsides as well.
Players to Watch: J. Tatum SF 10 GP 10 GS 34.6 MIN 26.9 PTS 0.4 OR 6.7 DR 7.1 REB 3.8 AST 1 STL 0.8 BLK 2.4 TO 1.8 PF 1.6 AST/TO 23.22 PER
