OUR PREDICTION: The Heat are just 17-35 against the spread in their last 52 games versus the Celtics and are 5-15 against the number in their last 20 games in Boston. While they own a losing ATS record at home overall this season, the Celtics have covered in five of their last six home games and are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five home games versus a team with a losing road record. For all their success against the spread this season, for one reason or another the Heat are still just 1-6 against the number in their last seven games played on Sunday.
