Miami Heat vs Boston Celtics 9/15/2020 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat are now considered the giant slayers after putting down the Milwaukee Bucks in six games. They are riding on the leadership of Jimmy Butler and acquiring the brash guard has already paid dividends for the team. He has good backing from Goran Dragic who comes off the bench and he is a 20-point threat for his opponents every night. Bam Adebayo’s inside play has also become a huge factor and will be expected to establish that presence against Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter. Meanwhile, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson have been more than expected from the rookies.

Boston Celtics Betting
The Boston Celtics survived the Toronto Raptors in a grueling seven-game series to earn their spot in the NBA Eastern Conference. Jayson Tatum had been on-and-off in the last playoff series but when he is on, he can bring the Celtics to the NBA Finals. Jaylen Brown’s confidence and demeanor have been the team’s barometer and the more he plays better, the Celtics become more unstoppable. Gambling on Kemba Walker during the offseason has become a very bright move for the team and expect Marcus Smart to become a huge factor in this upcoming series.
