Miami/New York under 209½

7:33 PM EST. The Heat are on the brink of advancing to the Eastern Conference finals with a 3-1 series lead over the Knicks. Miami dominated the Knicks at home in South Beach, winning Games 3 and 4 by an average of 18 points.

Here is how we are attacking this game tonight. The Heat have gone over the posted total in seven out of nine playoff games going back to Game 1 versus the Bucks. Moreover, the total has gone over in two of three games this series. Miami might be the #8 seed, but it is proving what kind of damage can be done when a team gets hot. In this series, the Heat are the only ones holding up their side of the scoring equation (shooting 49 percent from the field and 38 percent from 3-point range) and while that may continue, there are no guarantees. In what figures to be a tightly contested close out game this one sets up to go under the total.
