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 24-8-1 ATS in their last 33 playoff games as a favorite.
- The Celtics are 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 games playing on 3 or more days rest.
- The Celtics are 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Miami.
Verdict: The Celtics have their swagger back with the return of Hayward.
