NBA GAME OF THE WEEK ~ BIG PLAY ALERT!
(NBA) Miami vs. Boston, 09/15/2020 6:30 PM, Score: 117 - 114
Money Line: -119.00 Boston (Home)
Bookmaker: PinnacleSports
Result: Loss
I'm playing on BOSTON. After a hard-fought series against the Raptors, one might assume that the Celtics would be tired. However, the schedule-maker gave them a favor and they got a few days off before the series vs. the Heat. Note that Boston is 5-0-1 ATS (6-0 SU!) when playing with three or more day's rest in between games. Going back further finds the Celtics at a profitable 15-3-1 ATS in that situation. While those extra days off probably helped the Celtics, the opposite is likely true of the Heat. Miami already had a lengthy layoff and now will have been off since 9/8. A full week off is less than ideal, particularly when the Heat had been playing so well. Look for the Celtics to draw first blood.
