Celtics vs. Heat Game 3: Top 3 NBA Betting Odds & Picks for Saturday, May 21 (2022)

May 21, 2022 - 12:46 PM

Tonight’s series might be one of the best playoff games this year. Both the Heat and Celtics are playing the highest level of basketball they have played all year long. The Celtics have been the best team in basketball since the All-Star break, and the Heat maintained a top-five status all year long despite being decimated with injuries. Either of these teams has the talent and depth to come away with the title this year. 


  1. Boston Celtics Moneyline -265 at Draftkings Sportsbook

Tonight the series returns to Boston, and that is what is helping decide this pick. The Celtics are 4-2 at home during this year’s playoff run, and the Heat are 2-3 during away games. That sways in Boston’s favor tonight. The Celtics have the youth, talent, and depth to win this series. The Heat will get wins in this series and keep it close, but in tonight’s game, Boston has the advantage. 

  1. Total Points Over 207  -110 at Draftkings Sportsbook

Every game in this series has gone over 207. The game one total was 225, and the game two total was 229. Both of these games have gone well over the 207 total. Both of these teams are great defensively, which explains the low line for total points. The series is proving to be more about offense than defense. Until there is a shift in scoring, the over on total points is the play in this series. 

  1. Boston Celtics -6 -110 at Draftkings Sportsbook

The Heat have either won big or lost big throughout this year’s playoffs. Their average win differential is 15 points per game, and their average loss differential is 13.5 points per game. They are a boom or bust time, which means whoever wins this game tonight has the best chance at covering the spread. Since this series is going to Boston, this is a great value bet tonight.
