Best Bet: Over 215.5

After 3 straight unders, this total has dropped from 220.5 in game 3 to 215.5 tonight. At 215.5, 3 of the 5 games have covered the number with the other two games coming in at 210 and 212 despite a team scoring 91 points or less in each game.

In an elimination game setting, tonight should be much more competitive than games 4 and 5. It's worth noting that games 1-3 were much tighter games and played to an average total of 235 points.

If we look back to the regular season series, the average total was 239 points, indicating tonight's number should finish closer to what we saw early in this series.
