Heat @ Celtics tips, picks and prop bets: Celtics playoff revenge as Jayson Tatum flattens Miami

Planet Sport shares our game pick and best NBA prop bets as the Boston Celtics play host to Miami Heat at TD Garden on Friday night (Sat 0030 BST).

The NBA season continues as the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat will renew rivalries at TD Garden on Friday night (Sat 0030 BST).

Heat @ Celtics game pick

Boston made a winning start to the season as they beat the Knicks 108-104 at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.

Kristaps Porzingis exploded for 15 points in the first quarter while Jayson Tatum led the scoring with 34 on the night.

The Heat saw off the Pistons, 103-102, in a back-and-forth game in Miami. They led by 10+ on multiple occasions and even led by 19 in the fourth quarter.

Bam Adebayo scored 22 for Miami who had OK production from all of their scorers, but they shot just 40.2% and were let off the hook by Detroit’s 16 turnovers.

They’re terrible as a sizeable favourite, but the Heat fare well as an underdog, going 13-6ATS against teams winning 60% and they’re also 8-3ATS on the road.

Boston were elite at covering the number at home last season and while this seems like a disrespectful line to Miami, they’ve lost a lot of depth in the offseason.

One occasion where they fell short was their game seven loss to the Heat in the playoffs and we’re willing to bet tonight is all about retribution.

Bet: Boston Celtics -8

Celtics @ Knicks prop bets

Jayson Tatum scored 34 on the Knicks without breaking a sweat and the potential MVP will have plenty of motivation to drop a big number on Miami.

Prop: Jayson Tatum Over 26.5 points

Jaylen Brown averaged 26.6 points per game last season and will be eager to bounce back after making just four of 11 shots against the Knicks.

Prop: Jaylen Brown Over 19.5 points

The big man is a nightmare matchup for most teams and Miami are no different. He made five of nine three-point shots on Wednesday and he’ll have his way again on Friday.

Prop: Kristaps Porzingis Over 2.5 threes
