Odds From 

The Celtics have had a lot of trouble playing on the road this year. The good news is the Celtics seemingly have figured out how to stop the Heat offense. The problem with that is the Celtics are being stopped by the Heat and have had a lot of problems controlling the ball and in the last game the rebounding proved to be a challenge that the Celtics were unable to overcome. Look for the lack of rebounding to continue to plague the Celtics in this game here as the Heat are able to win and control the game here, but look for the total to go under as neither offense is able to paly good.
