Yahoo Sports' Zach Schwartz shares his bets for the Celtics vs. Heat game.
ZACH SCHWARTZ: It's Zach Schwartz with Yahoo! Sports. And I'm here to give you my betting insights for the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. First and foremost, it's been really chaotic trying to bet this game, just with the way that the runs, kind of, have worked. For the most part, in the Western Conference Finals, you knew that the Nuggets were going to make these strong pushes in the third quarter and parts of the early fourth. So it made it easy to kind of adjust your bets accordingly. From this series, it's been really difficult throughout. Just kind of random runs here and there. Celtics come out. Celtics look bad. Celtics look great. Heat look strong. Dominant. Game's already over. For this next one, as we discussed on our post-game show, I do think the Miami Heat are in some trouble here. I loved, loved seeing Tyler Herro go for 37. But if you're a Miami Heat team, relying on a late-round rookie to give you 37 is just not something that's feasible or reliable a threat in an Eastern Conference Finals series. So take the Boston Celtics at minus 3. Another player that's worth examining as far as their point total over goes is Jaylen Brown. He's been terrific throughout this series. His defense has been amazing. But, offensively, kind of unsung. Look for him to have a big game. But go ahead and take these Celtics.
