Miami is one win away from a sweep over Indiana. Playing in their backyard certainly benefits the team. The Heat have dominated the Pacers in just about every aspect of the game, thus resulting in the average margin of victory coming by 10.0 PPG. With the Milwaukee/Orlando series going at least two more games, this is an opportunity for Miami to finish the series and get a bit of extra time to rest and prepare before round 2. This is a team that is making nearly 15 three-pointers and going to the line 35 times a contest in this round. Five players are accounting for 15 or more PPG in this series. Butler and Dragic are scoring at will here. The Pacers are 1-5 ATS the last six vs. the Heat and 0-5-1 ATS the last six a playoffs underdog. Take the Heat. Thank you.
