Total: 219.00 | -104.00 Over
Everything about this Game 1 SCREAMS "under," but in the end we're actually expecting a must faster-paced affair that most are expecting. These are two very defensive-minded clubs, but note that the Nuggets have in fact seen the total go "over" the number in seven of their last ten when playing with three or more days of rest. The Nuggets will be out to push the pace from start to finish, and they won't take the foot off the gas at all as they look to crush the will and spirit of the Heat. Miami though has won the first game of every series so far in the Playoffs though, scoring 130 points in Game 1 vs. Milwaukee, 108 points in the Game 1 victory over New York and 123 points in Game 1 vs. Boston. Everything points to this total flying "over" the posted number sooner, rather than later!
