The Boston Celtics are in Florida and about to meet with the Miami Heat.

Before Betting on Celtics vs. Heat

The Cs lost last night in Orlando, 113-98. It was the third time this year that the Celtics suffered a defeat against the Magic, which is kind of shocking data. It was the first loss for the Cs in the past ten events, and they will be looking to bounce back quickly.

They couldn’t control the rebounds, with the Cs having only 37. Also, they weren’t as aggressive as expected, and Boston had only 11 free throws. Tatum and Brown scored 26 points each, Sam Hauser scored 13 and Derrick White 11.

The Heat had three games on the road before returning to the FTX Arena. They’ve lost against the Hawks and the Mavericks during that stretch while winning in New Orleans vs. Pelicans. The latest event at home was against the Pels as well, only at home.

That one ended 100-96 in favor of the Heat, who squeezed out a win here following a mediocre performance. Miami shot pretty badly for three, 8-for-34. Tyler Herro had 26 buckets, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo added 18, and Kyle Lowry 17.

These two teams are playing a bit tougher basketball lately; five of the past six games Boston played went under, and eight of the recent 11 Heat had ended in the same manner. So we take under 224.5 points.
