Game Totals Prediction

Analysts of bookmakers consider Denver to be the undisputed favorite of the upcoming match. It is worth agreeing with them. Mike Malone's team should become champions this season, and Miami is unlikely to be able to prevent this. "Nuggets" on their parquet will win a landslide victory. 

Our prediction is a victory for Denver with a handicap (-7.5) points for 1.80 in Mostbet.

Denver average 119 points in home games, Miami 107 away. However, in the last matches of the cup stage, both teams play very carefully, paying more attention to defense. In the last three games out of four, the mark of 215 fetters was not overcome. Everything goes to the fact that this time the fight will turn out to be not very productive.

Our prediction - total under 217.5 points including overtime for 1.78.

Denver is not among the top scoring teams in the league in the regular season. The Nuggets have a fairly average score of 117.5. Miami, on the other hand, concedes an average of 109.4 points. When there is a struggle for victory in the championship, teams often begin to play more cautiously in attack. Everything goes to the fact that in the upcoming match the team from Colorado will not be able to heavily load the opponent's ring.

Our prediction is Denver's total under 111.5 with overtime at 1.98.
