It should be a fierce NBA battle on Sunday night when the Miami Heat host the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics had a chance to finish off the series in Boston on Friday night, but the Heat came away with a 111-108 victory. The winner will take on the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals starting Thursday.

Tip-off is set for  8:30 p.m. ET at FTX Arena. Boston is favored by three-points in the latest Celtics vs. Heat NBA odds at Caesars Sportsbook, and the Over-Under for total points scored is set at 197 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page).

Miami typically plays strong defense, and it ranked fourth in the NBA in opponent scoring (105.6 per game) and field-goal percentage (44.7)
