NBA Picks For Saturday May 21, 2022

Game 3: Heat vs. Celtics, 8:30PM ET

PICK: Celtics -6.5 (-110)

The Boston that we've become accustomed to reappeared in Game 2's thumping win which is enough for us to chalk off the series opening loss as a matter of fatigue after a tough 7-game series against the Bucks, as well as a couple of key omissions in Marcus Smart and Al Horford. Now, as the series swings back to the Celtics' home court -and their squad looks settled and in good health - how can the Heat stop them? Miami are getting very little support from the likes of Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro, whose contributions really don't extend past short 3-4 minute bursts. 

The Celtics with Smart in the lineup completely changes the way Boston go about things on both ends of the floor and right now it doesn't appear as anyone on the Heat has an answer.

All you need to do is place a $10 moneyline bet on the team you think will win with BetMGM Sportsbook and you'll score $200 if either team hits a three-pointer. It doesn't even matter if your team wins - you'll still cash.
