NBA - Heat @ Nuggets
(NBA) Miami vs. Denver, 06/01/2023 8:30 PM, Score: 93 - 104
Total: 219.00 | -101.00 Over
Result: Loss
I can't take the nuggets against the spread with the way Miami has played above their expectations this playoffs, but I also can't take the Heat without knowing and seeing their gameplan to stop the 2 time MVP Jokic. Nuggets will not lose game 1 and that's the only definite, however the over is a good bet with the way these teams don't have enough knowledge to slow the game down and pick eachother apart. Another aspect is how bad the Celtics shot from beyond the arc, and that's not credit to the Heat's defense, so I do believe the Nuggets will make more of their 3point attempts than Boston, and they have efficient ball handling to not force turnovers (I believe the Lakers were a good defensive test before this matchup for the nuggets.) The only time they played in Denver, it hit over 140.
