The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Heat are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The over is 11-3 in Celtics last 14 overall. The over is 22-7 in Heat last 29 overall. The Celtics are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Miami and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Miami Heat have comfortably been the better team in this series through 3 games, and game 3 was a sign the Celtics are broken. You don't lose by 30 points and find the motivation to push things another game. The Celtics look like they're ready for the season to end, as there was zero fight in Sunday's loss. The Heat are also 12-3 ATS in their last 15 postseason games, and 9 of those 12 covers were outright victories. I have zero confidence in the Celtics at this point, and you shouldn't either. I'll lay the bucket with the Heat.
