Game Totals Prediction

Analysts of bookmakers consider New York to be the clear favorite of the upcoming match. You can agree with them. After an embarrassing defeat at home in the previous match, Tom Thibodeau's wards are simply obliged to achieve victory on the Madison Square Garden floor, since it will be almost impossible to win back in the series from 0-2. The Knicks will win a difficult victory with the support of their fans.

Our prediction is  the victory of New York with a handicap (-5.5) points for 1.74 at Mostbet.

“New York” averages 117 points in home matches, “Miami” – 107 away. Personal meetings of teams, as a rule, are not very productive. In the last two matches of the three current season, the mark of 210 points has not been overcome. Everything goes to the fact that this time the basketball players will not be able to please the fans with a bright attacking game.

Our prediction -  total under 208.5 points including overtime for 1.73.
