Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat Game 3 Betting Odds, Prop Bets

The line on Saturday's Game 3 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals had Miami as a +3 dog despite being up 2-0 in the series.

Boston was seeing around 65% of the spread action with a line that has not moved off the 3 at most books.

The Celtics' loss Thursday saw them blow both a 17-point lead amassed in the second quarter and a five-point edge in the final five minutes of the game. It was the second straight such defeat for Boston after Miami came back from 14 points down in the fourth quarter to win in overtime in Game 1, so tensions were reportedly high among players, namely Marcus Smart and the other team leaders.

"It's really just a lot of emotions flying around," Celtics swingman Jaylen Brown said. "Obviously we feel like we could have won (Game 2); we should have won, but we didn't. So just a lot of emotions flying around. That's it."

The series prices now had the Heat at -320 and Celtics +260, the later paying out $260 for every $100 bet.
