Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics 1/31/2022 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat have been the toughest team to beat in the entire NBA with their Doberman mentality of guarding opposing teams. The Heat is surrounded by players who are willing to play defense and the culture instilled by Pat Riley is still felt. Coach Erik Spoelstra is the front runner to bag the 2022 NBA Coach of the Year honors and it has been long coming for the Fil-Am mentor. Tyler Herro is also in the talks for being the year’s most improved player after being the second-best scoring option behind Jimmy Butler. Miami is also expected to ramp up in the NBA standings now that Bam Adebayo is healthy and providing the team double-doubles again.

Boston Celtics Betting
What to do with the Boston Celtics? Some say that the tandem of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum is not working and they have to let go of one of them and acquire an asset through a trade. This team has been tough to beat at home as Celtic Pride helps them win games. The Dennis Schroder experiment has not been reaping much for them and Al Horford is doing his best turning back time contributing to the team. Marcus Smart called out his teammates at one point and addressed the selfishness of their star players. This team is in basketball limbo as they are not that good and not that bad as well.
