NBA FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest NBA trends, Miami is 7-0 ATS last 7 following a SU loss, 22-6 ATS last 28 road games and 20-8 ATS last 28 Sunday games. Indiana is 2-8 ATS last 10 Sunday games.

The Heat are a veteran team that won't be flustered by losing one game at home in a playoff series. They lost the first one in their last series against Chicago and went on to win four straight. There's a reason whey won 33 of 45 road games this year. They are also 4-0 on the road in the playoffs this year.  LeBron James had 36 points but turned it over twice in the last minute. Miami went to a bigger lineup again in Game 2, using Joel Anthony to help counter David West and Tyler Hansbrough. Expect the Heat to continue to tinker with their lineup and for James to become more aggressive in those situations. Miami's perimeter game has also been poor in this series as Shane Battier is 0 for 6, Norris Cole is 1 for 4 and Ray Allen is 1 for 6. That likely won't happen again and the Heat will go ahead 2-1.

2013 NBA FREE PICK: MIAMI HEAT -1.5
