Miami Heat at Boston Celtics Predictions & Tips

Miami are tipped to cover as a double digit underdog on the road.

The Heat were blown out in Game 1, but this time they have had more time to prepare and will not be playing with a huge rest disadvantage.

  • Miami Heat have covered in 7 of the last 11 meetings
  • Miami have covered in 17 of their 27 games as a road betting underdog
  • Boston have failed to cover in 5 of their 9 games as a 15-point or more favourite
  • The Under has cashed in 6 of the last 8 meetings 

Head To Head

  • Boston Celtics lead the all-time series 101-73
  • Boston Celtics lead this NBA Playoff series 1-0
  • Boston Celtics won 114-94 when the two teams last met on April 21

Miami Heat Form

Miami go into this game looking to issue an immediate response to a blowout defeat in the series opener.

The Heat put together a 46-36 regular-season record that earned them a spot in the Play-In Tournamnet and a second crack at making the postseason.

They failed to take their chance in their first Play-In game, as they were beaten 105-104 by Philadelphia in a game that also saw them lose Jimmy Butler to injury.

Miami took their second opportunity in the Play-In Tournament though, as they dominated Chicago on their way to a 112-91 win.

The Heat were brought crashing back down to Earth in their playoff opener however, as they were beaten 114-94 in Boston on Sunday.

Boston Celtics Form

Boston enter Game 2 looking to open up a two-game lead in the series before they head to Miami for Games 3 and 4.

The Celtics put together a league-best 64-18 record during the regular season to claim top spot in the Eastern Conference, and home court advantage of the playoffs.

They ended the regular season on a fine run of form that saw them win 16 of their final 20 games - a sequence that included a nine-game win streak.

Boston  closed out the regular season with back-to-back wins, beating Charlotte 131-98 and Washington 132-122, and they kept that winning run going in their postseason opener.

The Celtics opened up this series at home and dominated Miami as they ran out 114-94 winners last Sunday night.

Verdict

We are expecting another win for Boston, but this may not be a massacre at the TD Garden.

Miami are not facing a quick turnaround against a team who had not played in a week, so we expect them to be fresher and better prepared here.
