Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

The Miami Heat head to Philadelphia to face the 76ers with a comfortable 2-0 lead after double-digit wins in the first 2 games. Tip-off for Game 3 is at 7:00 pm ET on ESPN and I’ve prepared a same game parlay which you can find below.

We also have predictions on the side and total for Game 3 of the Phoenix Suns vs Dallas Mavericks series, so be sure to check them out later.

Let’s get into in!

Miami Heat 11+ win margin (+280)

PJ Tucker over 2+ made threes (+172)

Bam Adebayo to score 20+ points (+104)

Parlay odds: +1714

Miami Heat 11+ win margin (+280)

Barring a miraculous recovery on game day, the 76ers are going to be without Joel Embiid for the 3rd straight game in this series. They lost the first 2 games by double digits, and although they are playing at home, there’s not much they can hope for. Bam Adebayo has had 2 really solid games in this series, and I expect him to continue playing well as he once again goes up against Deandre Jordan. Kyle Lowry could also make a return as he recovers from a hamstring injury. The Heat have covered the spread in 5 of their last 7 games against Philadelphia and are 11-3-1 ATS in their last 15 on the road overall. Take them to record another comfortable win.

P.J Tucker over 2+ made threes (+172)

Through 7 playoff games PJ Tucker is averaging 9.1 points on 53.3% shooting from the field. More importantly though, he is Miami’s most efficient scorer from the perimeter at 54.5%. After averaging 1.6 makes per game in the series against Atlanta, he has upped that to 2 per game against Philly and his percentage has also gone up from 46% to 58% in this series. In 3 of his last 4 games he’s made at least 2 threes. The Heat have so many weapons from 3-point land on their team, but none of them have been as consistent as the experienced Tucker. Looking at his last 6 meetings with Philadelphia in the regular season and playoffs, he has made at least 2 threes in 4 of them. I expect that solid run to continue as he drains a couple from the corners.

Bam Adebayo to score 20+ points (+104)

Going to Bam Adebayo down low has been a proven recipe for the Miami Heat in this series as he he’s had 20 or more points in both games. He matches up really well against Deandre Jordan, who is well past his prime. Joel Embiid has been ruled out for Game 3, so that opens the door for Adebayo to once again dominate the 76ers on the inside. If we include both the regular season and playoffs, he has now scored over 20 points in 3 straight against Philadelphia. In 26 games played on the road this season he’s also averaging 19.4 points per game and his efficiency has been through the roof over the past 10 games at almost 62% from the field. Philadelphia’s defensive numbers are well off without their big man in the lineup, so fingers crossed Adebayo can capitalize once again.
