NBA Playoffs Betting Spread- Heat at Nets Game 4

I’m pretty sure the Miami Heat will have something to say in game four of the Eastern Conference semifinals after they were rolled over in game three by the Brooklyn Nets.  Game time is this Monday at 7 PM ET at the Barclays Center.

The Nets surprised the Heat on Saturday winning 104-90 and putting the series 2-1, still in favor of the Heat.

“You’ve got to have that type of mental ego against a juggernaut. You go against the best, a lot of series are won on fear factor, like, or non-belief. When you have that non-belief, then you have no chance,” Pierce said after practice.

“What I try to do in this locker room, or with my teammates, is just try to give them belief that we can beat this team. They’re not unbeatable.”

Miami is playing the relax card, after all they are the champions and the ones who have been here before, as a team.

“Why should it be a fear factor?” Heat star Lebron James said. “It’s just basketball. We’re not trying to win a war here, it’s just basketball. That’s all it is. We’re all grown men, who cares about who’s fearing who?”

The NBA Betting Spread has the Heat as 2.5 point favorites, and the game total is at 187.5 points. The Nets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog of 0.5-4.5, and the Heat is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 playoff games as a favorite.
