Vaughn Dalzell shares his best bet in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.

Celtics at Heat (-1.5): O/U 216.0

Miami looks for the sweep over Boston in Game 4 at home, and after what we witnessed in Game 3, the Celtics look checked out.

The Celtics have been a different team in the second-halves of this series and can’t hit much from three, including a 25% mark from three. Boston’s scored 17, 25 and 33 points in the three third quarters of this series and dropped 22, 25 and 39 points in the fourth quarters.

Miami is 6-0 on the ML and ATS at home in this postseason compared to Boston who is 4-3 on the ML.

Boston lost three-straight to Golden State in the NBA Finals last year, but has never lost four-straight or gotten swept in the playoffs with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. There’s a first for everything.

I grabbed the Heat’s ML at -120 odds and would go out to -140 as I expect a sweep. Boston’s Game 3 effort was one of the worst conference finals performances I have ever seen.

There has never been a sweep of both teams in the conference finals, so if Denver beat Los Angeles on Monday night, then Miami has a chance to make history.

Pick: Heat ML (1u)
