The Boston Celtics picked up a much-needed win against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night, but they’ll face a much stiffer test in the form of the Miami Heat on Thursday.
Miami comes into the contest on a five-game winning streak and none of the games have been particularly close. The Heat have outscored their opponents by 86 points in their last five games, and they’re also 3-0 at home on the year.
While the Celtics are one of the worst teams against the spread this year (3-5), the Heat are the best, sitting at 6-1 ATS. It’s no surprise, given their margins of victory over their winning run.
Games involving the two squads have gone over the total on seven of 15 occasions, but that’s certainly not due to the scoring output that Miami has generated. The Heat lead the league in points per game.
