Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. 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.

It’s an Eastern Conference showdown in South Beach as the 6-1 Miami Heat reignite their rivalry with the 3-5 Boston Celtics tonight.

You can watch the game live on NBA TV at 7.30 pm ET, we have prepared a same-game parlay, which you can check below.

The rest of our predictions on the side and total for Thursday’s NBA slate are available here

Boston Celtics +7 (-110)

Tyler Herro Over 2.5 Made Threes (+106)

Bam Adebayo Over 10.5 Rebounds (+100)

Parlay odds: +707

Boston Celtics +7 (-110)

After a slower start to the season, the Boston Celtics have regrouped and beat the Orlando Magic by 13 points. The players-only meeting they had after their collapse against the Chicago Bulls seems to have worked. The line is pretty big here, mainly because the Celtics find themselves only 12th in the East right now, but there’s still over 70 games left in the regular season. One reason to be optimistic for tonight is their recent record against the Heat in road games, they’ve covered the spread 12 times in their last 18 visits. They’ve also had some unlucky losses in overtime and double overtime, their record could have easily been much better. Plus, this hot start to the new season by Miami can’t last forever, right? Let’s hope the Celtics keep this one close.

Tyler Herro over 2.5 made threes (+106)

Let’s just give Herro the 6th man of the year award already. This guy has been playing out of his mind over the first 7 games and is the 2nd leading scorer on the Heat’s roster. He is averaging 22.4 points per game and shooting 47% from the field and almost 41% from three-point territory. Speaking of threes, in his last three games against the Hornets, Grizzlies and Mavericks he’s scored 11 of them while shooting 50% or more in each of the three games. Boston ranks only 18th in the NBA when it comes to opponent three-point percentage, I think Herro will have another productive night.

Bam Adebayo Over 10.5 Rebounds (+100)

His rebounding numbers have been really impressive so far this season. In the 6 games he has played so far he’s averaging 13.8 per game and he’s already had a 19 rebound game against the Hornets and a 16 rebound game against Indiana. Only once this season he has finished under 13 rebounds, Miami still won that game against Brooklyn. Boston ranks dead last when it comes to opponent rebounds per game allowing a whopping 61 per game, that number goes up to 62.4 per game on the road. I just don’t see 35-year old Al Horford being able to stay in front of Adebayo and his replacement Robert Williams III is just too inexperienced to cope. Look for Bam to get to his season average in this one.
