It looks as if the sleeping giants known as the Boston Celtics have finally woken up from their slumber. After being down 0-3, the Cs have strung together back-to-back wins to force a Game 6 in Miami. The question on everyone's mind is, will there be a Game 7?
The online sportsbooks seem to think so! Most shops have the Celtics favored by 2.5 points over the Heat in Game 6. The total is currently sitting at 210.5.

Every so often you just have to ride a certain horse until she dies. That's exactly what our approach is on this assists number on Derrick White. He's stayed under this number in 11 of his last 12 ball games, which is pretty insane when you think about it.
White had a phenomenal Game 5 by scoring 24 points, but he still only dished out 1 assist. The 28-year-old is only averaging 1.9 assists per game during this year's playoffs. That's a pretty substantial number when you consider that it's an 18-game sample size.
Unibet is pricing this Under at -143, which is a great indicator that we're on the right side. Let's play the Under to get this party started.
Horford did a fantastic job of crashing the boards in Game 5, and we don't see him slowing down in Game 6. The former Florida Gator may have only scored 6 points, but his 11 rebounds were a key to Boston's dominance in Game 5.
We're expecting the 6-9, 240-pound big man to wrestle some boards away from Heat center Bam Adebayo. We love Bam, but Miami ranks just 25th in team rebounding. Boston, on the other hand, ranks a respectable 12th.
Horford is averaging 7.1 rebounds per game during this year's playoffs. He's averaging 8.2 rebounds per game through 165 career playoff games. That's good enough for us to roll with the Over!
Here's another number that's simply too low. Most sportsbooks and DFS sites had Love's rebounding number at 4.5 for Game 5. He ended up with 6 rebounds in that game, so it doesn't make much sense why this number went down.
In this series so far, Love has gone over this number 3 times. He's also gone under this total just once and has finished with exactly 4 rebounds once. The former UCLA Bruin is also averaging 5.8 rebounds per game through 16 playoffs games this year.
If you want to dig into a larger sample size, Love grabbed 5 or more rebounds in 47 of 62 regular season games. He finished with less than 4 rebounds just 8 times. The Over is the play here for the Love Machine!
