The Miami Heat let the Celtics back in after leading at half-time of Game 5. Now we head to a sixth game in these Eastern Conference Finals with the series well and truly back in the balance.
Boston poured in 70 points in the second half on their way to a 121-108 win on Friday. Jayson Tatum led all scorers with 31; he’ll need to step up again if the Celtics are to force this to a deciding Game 7.

💪 SPREAD: Heat +3 (-110*)
👆 OVER/UNDER: o214 Total Points (-110*)
🚨 Best online sportsbooks here
Moneyline: Celtics (-151*) has a 61% probability
The Heat are slowly losing their ironclad grip on these Eastern Finals, and the Celtics know it. Boston were much improved in Game 5, not just on offense, but defensively as well, restricting Miami to just 19% from 3. The Celtics are simply too stacked to bow out now. Take them at the Moneyline.
Heat +3 (-162*) has a 52% probability
Our predictive analysis has Boston getting the W in this one 109-106 which means we like the Heat to cover this one, even if we feel they’ll fall short on the moneyline market. Two of the five games between the paid in this series have been decided by 3 points.
o214 Total Points (-110*) has a 52% probability
Boston are usually known for slowing down the pace and controlling things, particularly in playoffs, but this series has been a different beast. Four games so far have gone over. The total points line is set a little higher for Game 6, but we believe that shouldn’t be an issue; the average points total for the series is 222 points per contest.
🏀 Dimers' take-out
Even when Miami was up 3-1, you could sense that this Eastern Conference Finals series still had some life left in it. It would be an anti-climactic way for Boston to end their season if they lost in Game 6. We see this one going the distance.
