The Celtics are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Heat are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Celtics last 7 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 11-4 in Heat last 15 games as a favorite. The Celtics are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Boston Celtics have yet to string together back-to-back solid performances, and now they're on the end of a back to back, going up against arguably the best team in the league. The Miami Heat are beating teams into the ground and have the best defense in the league to go along with the best net rating. This is a tough schedule spot for the Celtics. I'll gladly lay the reasonable number with the Heat at home.
