The Heat v 76ers Game 5 Betting Preview You Need

Butler's 40-piece wasn't enough to earn the Heat their third victory and now the series is tied at 2-2. As we head back to Miami for Game 5, many questions need to be answered. Why was Miami so bad behind the 3-point line? Is Harden finally redeeming himself? And what happens if Philadelphia wins three in a row? Find your answers in our Game 5 betting preview of the Heat v 76ers.

Heat v 76ers Game 5 betting preview

It looks like we have another series on our hands as the 76ers won Game 4 too to tie it up. Miami struggled in both of their road games and Philadelphia’s rally doesn’t look too good for them. Embiid, who was predicted to miss both Games 3 and 4, played a huge role in his team’s victories. James Harden finally showed up too. The Heat’s inefficiency from the 3-point line cost them Game 4. They shot only 20% from beyond the arc, apart from that, they didn’t commit too many mistakes. In fact, the lead changed 17 times during the game, and the score was also tied 11 times. Many Miami fans blamed the loss on coach Spoelstra, who didn’t include players like Duncan Robinson in the rotation. Robinson is arguably one of the best snipers on the Heat and his presence could affect the Heat v 76ers Game 5 betting previews.

Kyle Lowry has also returned to the Heat rotation but he’s been terrible in this year’s playoffs so far. Dewayne Dedmon and Isaiah Joe were the only two players on the injury lists for Game 4 and they’ll most likely return for the next meeting. Both of their statuses are listed as day-to-day. Game 5 will be as crucial to the Heat as Game 4 was for the 76ers. Jimmy Butler will need more help than before if Miami wants to avoid losing three games in a row. The Game 5 betting previews of the Heat v 76ers favor Miami but only by a little. Seeing how both teams will most likely be at full strength, we’re expecting a close game on Tuesday. Let’s hope Miami can fix their 3-point percentages, for their sake. Furthermore, the Heat should also focus on containing the 76ers on the fast break.
