SportsLine NBA expert Ameer Tyree has analyzed the Nuggets vs. Heat Game 5 lines and has several plays he loves on the spread, total, and props. One spot where he sees a clear edge for bettors? The total.
"The total was a mere 203 points in Game 4 and the Heat were held under 100 points for the third time in the championship series. The Nuggets have suffocated the shorthanded underdogs in nearly every contest. However, Tyler Herro has been upgraded to questionable for Game 5 and rotations will shorten drastically to keep the best scorers on the court," Tyree told SportsLine.
