May 25 NBA odds and promos: Heat-Celtics odds plus best NBA promotions
The Denver Nuggets have advanced to the NBA Finals after sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. Here are the May 25 NBA odds for Game 5 of the ECFs with Miami up 3-1:
- Heat (+8) at Celtics (8:30 p.m. ET, TNT)
Plus, here are some of the best NBA promos on the market right now:
Heat vs. Celtics Game 5 picks: Heat moneyline (+245 or better)
Yes, the Heat let the sweep slip away thanks to a big third quarter in Game 4 from by Boston. But otherwise, Miami has either matched or outplayed the Celtics throughout the series.
As we saw in the first two games of this series and other games in these playoffs, the Heat have no problem winning on the road.
Jaylen Brown has been off all series long and Jayson Tatum hasn't been much better, despite finally showing up in Game 4.
Miami thrives on embarrassing other teams on their home floor, and they'll look to do so again Thursday night and end the series in five.
May 25 NBA props today: Jayson Tatum and Jimmy Butler props, plus more NBA picks
Jayson Tatum props: Under 3.5 3-pointers made (-150 or better)
Tatum hasn't shot the ball well from long range in this series, going 9-for-29 (31 percent) over four games.
He's also hit this over -- in the Game 4 win in Miami. He went 4-for-9 in that game, his best performance from beyond the arc in the series.
Tatum averaged 3.2 makes from 3-point range on 35 percent shooting during the regular season, and his best offense comes on mid-range jumpers and driving to the basket.
If the Celtics hope to keep their season alive, they'll need their superstar to be productive and efficient -- he'll do that best from inside the arc.
Jimmy Butler props: Over 7.5 rebounds (+106 or better)
Butler's hit this over in three straight games -- which is even more impressive considering the blowouts we saw in the last two matchups that took him off the floor early.
Game 5 should be a tighter battle with both teams viewing it as a must-win. That should put Butler on the floor for most of, if not all of the game.
Every extra game this goes, the more pressure gets dropped on the Heat -- and specifically their star.
Butler is going to put on a show Thursday night to ruin things for the Boston faithful in attendance.
