Ricky's 7* play on Boston.
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 Celtics are 10-5 ATS in the last 15 games at Miami.
- The Celtics are 22-9-1 ATS in their last 32 playoff games as a favorite.
- The Celtics are 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games following a ATS loss.
Verdict: The Celtics should be the more desperate team here facing elimination.
