Pacers vs Heat Game 4 NBA Odds, Preview and Predictions
The Miami Heat look for a four-game sweep of the Indiana Pacers Monday night as they two teams get set for Game 4 of their first round best-of-seven series. Indiana played their best game yet over the weekend in Game 3, but still look at a 0-3 series deficit heading into this one.
Let’s look at where the value is at in this one.
- Indiana Pacers: +200
- Miami Heat: -245
- Indiana Pacers +6: -110
- Miami Heat -6: -110
- Over 216.5: -110
- Under 216.5: -110
Key Points to Consider
Outlook: Indiana is barely holding on here, down three games to none. What made matters worse in Game 3 was the fact that Miami rookie guard Tyler Herro outscored the entire Indiana bench with his 20 points. Herro is averaging close to 17 points per game this series off the bench. Indiana just does not have the talent or depth to compete here.
Herro is projected to finish Game 4 with 13 points.
Better than Expected: Although a small sample size at just three games, Miami is shooting 42.7 percent from beyond the arc in the postseason so far. Impressive when you consider that the Pacers are on the top 10 in defensive efficiency.
Biggest Adjustment: Indiana has to figure out a way to get more production on offense, but it feels more along the lines of, too little too late. They rank. No. 19 in the league in offensive efficiency, and while a lot of that has to do with the likes of Victor Oladipo and Malcolm Brogdon dealing with injuries all season, there’s just not enough depth to make up an 0-3 deficit.
For Indiana, Victor Oladipo is projected to finish with 18 points (41% FG) 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 1-to-2 steals, and 3 TOs.
For Miami, Kendrick Nunn is projected to lead the way with 15 points (46% FG), 4 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 steal and 2 TOs.
