Boston Celtics at Miami Heat Game 6 Betting Pick

No team in NBA history has ever overcome a 3-0 series deficit. The team with a 3-0 series lead is 150-0 in NBA history.

Yet, game six is must win for the Miami Heat, who hold a 3-2 series lead over the Boston Celtics and are dealing with depth issues caused by injury. As Miami regressed in its three-point shooting efficiency and gave up too many turnovers in the last two games, the Boston Celtics have been shooting at a significantly higher three-point range, shooting closer to their season average.

We’ll review the stats, trends, and odds before making our game six betting picks.

Boston Celtics at Miami Heat Game 6 Betting Picks

The first of our picks for game six is to take the over of 210.5. This total points line is the lowest of the head-to-head meetings this season, with only two games hitting under 210 total points this weekend.

Our second pick is the hardest: will Boston force a game seven (which they’ll win), or will Playoff Jimmy and the Butlerettes show up and secure a date with Denver Nuggets in the NBA Finals?

This game comes down to three-point shooting efficiency, which the last two games have favored the Boston Celtics, while the Miami Heat have regressed to their regular season three-point shooting efficiency.

We’re also concerned with Miami’s current depth at point guard and Bam Adebayo’s recent performances.

We’re taking the Boston Celtics to force a game seven, and when they do, they’ll win game seven and make more history.
