The Celtics shot 48 percent from floor Saturday; we're dubious as to whether they'll shoot that well again Wednesday. Same goes for the Heat; we expect them to shoot better than 39 percent. And we still believe Jimmy Butler is the best player in this series. We're not usually big believers in the “zig-zag” betting theory but this looks like a good spot for it. We'll take Miami and the points for our free NBA playoffs pick for Wednesday. 

Free Pick: 
Take Miami +3.5

Los Angeles has LeBron and the Brow, but Denver has Big Mo, coming off its rousing semifinals victory over the Clippers three days ago. And while the Lakers might own the edge in playoff experience, the Nuggets might be sharper, having played more recently. Also, these teams met four times during the regular season, playing three close games; LA's three wins came by nine points, by four in overtime, and by three. We expect another close one here. So we'll take Denver plus the points for our free NBA playoff pick for Friday.

Free Pick: 
Take Denver +7

We're 0-1 ATS picking this series, after backing Boston in Game 1. The Celtics had their chance, and out-played Miami for about three-quarters of that game, but couldn't put the Heat away. Miami is playing inspired ball right now, led by Butler, but he's also getting great help from his supporting cast. Meanwhile, the Celtics are still missing Hayward, and Kemba Walker is struggling, shooting 13/46 from the floor over his last three games. We'll change horses here and take the Heat for our free NBA playoff pick on Game 2.
Free Pick: 
Miami Heat +2.5

We're 1-2 ATS picking this series, after taking the Rockets each of the first three games. Houston won Game 1 rather convincingly, but the Lakers have taken the next two games by outscoring the Rockets 57-37 in the fourth quarters. But we're not giving up on Houston yet. We liked the Rockets defensive effort in Game 1, and we don't expect LA to continue to shoot 55-57 percent from the floor like they've done the last two games. We're taking Houston and the points, again, for our free NBA pick on this Game 4.
Free Pick: 
Take Houston + 5.5
