Over Under Total Pick:
The Miami Heat are in the unfavorable 3 games in 4 nights spot and may be feeling a little too good about themselves after last night’s 124 point explosion. We believe that the Heat’s energy levels may be on the low side tonight and we are unlikely to see a fast paced game.
Take the UNDER 210.
