Ricky's 7* play on the Heat.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Pacers are 0-5 ATS in their last five Conference Quarterfinals games.
- The Heat are 23-8 ATS in their last 31 games following a straight up loss.
- The Heat are 6-2 ATS in their last eight playoff games as a favorite.
Verdict: Jimmy Butler should take over this series.
