Pick against the spread, best player prop for Heat vs. Celtics on Tuesday

We go over some of the best betting options for Tuesday’s matchup between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics.

NBA: Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday night’s matchup between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics will have plenty of ramifications for the play-in tournament. With just four games left for both teams, Miami is the current No. 6 seed with a 37-31 record, two games ahead of Boston, which has the seventh best record at 35-33.

The Celtics will continue life without Jaylen Brown, who is out for the rest of the season with a wrist injury, and Robert Williams III is questionable for Tuesday’s game with a toe injury. Victor Oladipo remains out for Miami, and reserve power forward Nemanja Bjelica is out with a stomach illness.

Pick ATS: Celtics +2

Both teams should put out a full effort as this is a huge game for play-in tournament purposes. A Heat victory could just about guarantee them a spot inside the top 6. Miami came out on top in Boston 130-124 on Sunday, but we’re betting against the Celtics losing two home games in a row in what is somewhat of a must-win situation. The Celtics need to prove to themselves they can play well offensively without Brown because they’ll need their top scorers to step up without their All-Star.
