TIME: 4 PM ET. TV: TNT

Action and Line Movement

The line opened at Heat -5 and had dropped to -4 most books overnight.  Bovada, a recreational sportsbook, was holding at -4.5.  Bookmaker, a sharp sportsbook, had moved the line all the way down to -3.5.

We already know the books had little problem opening at Heat -5.  The action was 68% on the Miami at -4.  One would think that oddsmakers would be pushing the line back to -5 in an effort to get more action on the Pacers. 

Gambling911.com will be all over Indiana +4.5 (still available some books), even though +4 is still good in our opinion.

What Sagarin Says

Sagarin indicates the line on this game should be Pacers -1.

Hot Trends

  • Though Miami has won four of the last five in this series, Indiana had dominated prior to this period.  The Heat only won by a single point in one of these three victories prior to Tuesday's win.  That was a blowout of 113-101. 
  • Heat are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points.

Gambling911.com will be all over Indiana +4.5 (still available some books), even though +4 is still good in our opinion.
