The Pick: Under 207.5 (-110), bet $11 to win $10

I took the over for both games in Miami, but now that the series is even, and each team has had their blowout, I expect tonight’s Game 3 to be a tighter affair. After all, both of these teams rank in the top three in the NBA in scoring defense (Boston first, Miami third), opponent’s field goal percentage (Boston first, Miami fourth), and opponent’s three-point percentage (Boston first, Miami second). I thought the over/under lines for both Miami games were too low, but this line has inched up enough, and both these teams are settled down enough, that I think the under works here.
