PointsBet Data and Insights

THE LINES: Heat @ Nuggets (-8.5); Total 209.5

TIP-OFF: 8:30 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The Nuggets are one win from clinching their first championship in franchise history, and they can do it at home where they are 9-1 in the playoffs and 43-8 this season. The Heat have been outscored by 36 points this series and will try to cool off a Denver offense that leads all playoff teams in points per possession, true shooting percentage and turnover rate.

TRENDING: The Under is 7-1 in the Heat’s last eight games as their offense has sputtered, averaging just 99.4 PPG. The Nuggets are now 12-2 straight up in their last 14 games against the Heat (including 5-1 this season) and are 9-1 SU (7-3 ATS) over their last 10.

MAKING MOVES: The spread was Nuggets -9 before reports emerged that Tyler Herro could suit up for the first time this NBA Finals. The total has gone up ⬆️ since it opened at 207.5, rising to 209.5.

SERIES SWINGS: The Nuggets went from -800 to -10000 to win the series after taking Game 4 in Miami, while the Heat are now priced at +2000. But about that -10000 price tag, those were the same odds Nikola Jokic had to lead the series in assists. Jokic trails Jamal Murray (+2500) by 10 in that category.

TOP PROP: Gabe Vincent over 9.5 points leads all player props in handle, even though he has combined for 9 over the past two contests.

In the past three games, the Heat have outscored the Nuggets twice in the first quarter and were tied after one in the other one. You also can’t blame Bam Adebayo for the Heat falling into a 3-1 hole. Miami’s big man is putting up 22.3 points and 12.5 rebounds per game this series, and has reached 20 points and 8 rebounds in all four games.

With the Heat’s backs against the wall in Game 5, we’re expecting a fast start from a hungry team and another strong effort from their most consistent performer in this +290 SGP.

Heat first quarter +2.5 (-105)
Bam Adebayo 20+ points (-130)
Bam Adebayo 8+ rebounds (-450)


Hoops guru Kazeem "Kaz" Famuyide is banking on big performances from the Nuggets stars to lead the team to a title. Ariel "Prop Queen" Epstein is aiming to go 2-for-2 at the plate.


Nikola Jokic Triple Double and Nuggets to Win (+135) [8:30 p.m. ET]
"I'm ready to call it! The Heat just can't contain Jokic and the Nuggets. I think he gives us one more monster performance."
Jamal Murray Over 8.5 Assists (+110)
"Murray has been balling this entire NBA Finals. He's gotten at least 10 assists in every game, so I'll gladly take over 8.5 here."


Reds SP Luke Weaver Over 4.5 Strikeouts (-115) [8:10 p.m. ET]
"Right-handed starters are averaging just under six strikeouts per game against the Royals, who happen to own the second-highest K-rate vs. righties.
Marlins ML (+105) @ Mariners [9:40 p.m. ET]
"I find it strange that the Marlins are underdogs when they have the pitching advantage with southpaw Jesus Luzardo. Seattle's arms have been terrible lately, including tonight's starter Bryce Miller."

Michael Porter Jr. to Make 3+ Threes in the First Half (+1000)

Parisi: “It might not be his series but it can be his half. If he can get 1 to go in early, so will 2 and 3 at a big-time price.”

It’s only fitting that the 123rd U.S. Open will be in Los Angeles (LACC), with golf’s biggest stars vying for this storied major. Here are the faves:

⛳ Scottie Scheffler (+750): His worst finish on Tour since November is a tie for 12th. Insane. Tied for second last year at the Country Club with a Sunday 67.

⛳ Jon Rahm (+1100): Comes in lukewarm off at T50 at the PGA and T16 at the Memorial. And that’s why the Masters champ is not favored.

⛳ Brooks Koepka (+1200): The big-game hunter has won five majors since 2017. He has been reborn. And he comes in refreshed.

⛳ Rory McIlroy (+1500): Perhaps distracted‍ last week, the conscience of professional golf managed a T9 in Canada. Rors has four straight top-10s at the U.S. Open but no victories since 2011.

⛳ Patrick Cantlay (+1600): The sweet-swinging Cantlay is past due to hold up some heavy hardware on a Sunday evening.

⛳ Viktor Hovland (+1600): Speaking of due, the cheerful Norwegian has gone T4, T7, T2 in his last three majors and just captured the Memorial, also on a rugged course.

⛳ Xander Schauffele (+2000): Impressive that, at 29, the SoCal native has five top-7 U.S Open finishes. Unimpressive that he has zero wins.

One Maryland client backed the Canadian to win on his home soil.

Unfortunately, no clients cashed on Adam Hadwin getting tackled by security at +100000.
