ODDS: Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have installed the Heat as 8-point favorites over the Pacers, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 181.5 points.

LINE MOVEMENT: The Heat opened as 8.5-point favorites but the spread has been bet down to 8 at most online and Vegas sports books. As for the total, it opened at 183.5 but has been bet down as low as 181.5 and is 182 at some select online sports books.

NBA FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest NBA trends, the home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams. This Pacers enter this series without Danny Granger (knee), who played just five games this year. Power forward David West is also hampered by a calf injury and has been limited in practice lately. Miami swept Milwaukee in their first round and beat Chicago in five games. They've won their playoff games by an average of 13.9 points per game. The big matchup will be up front as Udonis Haslem and Chris Bosh will be forced to cover Roy Hibbert, who is 7-foot-2, 270+ pounds. The Heat will double down low when Hibbert gets the ball and use their quickness and length to make Indiana's entry passes a lot more difficult. Indiana took Miami to six games last season, leading the series 2-1 at one point, but Granger was there and Bosh played about one half of the six games due to injury. Miami takes the first game with ease due to experience and LeBron James.
