ZACH SCHWARTZ: It's Zach Schwartz with "Yahoo Sports," here to give you my betting insights for the Eastern Conference finals between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. We saw Tyler Herro go off in the last game and, with Miami, it's incredibly hard to predict who it is gonna be on any given night that gives you buckets. So for this game, I think the best strategy, knowing this Boston team with their backs against the wall, they're gonna come out and compete hard. Take Boston first half -2 1/2.

I don't think betting the full game line is stable either which way. If-- we still haven't really seen Jimmy Butler go off in this series. Now perhaps that's because Jayson Tatum is such a phenomenal defender, as is Jaylen Brown. So at risk of someone on the Heat going, you know, crazy again, I just would stay away from the final game line.
