Now that the Miami Heat have gotten control back of the Eastern Conference Finals, let’s take a look at some of the betting props for Game 3 against the Indiana Pacers to see which ones we can cash in on.
<p><b>Most Point Scored By: <b>West vs. Wade</b><br /></b><b style="font-size:1em">David West +4 Points<br /></b><b style="font-size:1em">Dwayne Wade -4 Points<br /></b><span style="font-size:1em">This should be an easy bet in which we side with Dwayne Wade. However, Chris Bosh was disappointing in Game 2 and when he plays well, Wade sometimes takes a back seat.</span></p> <p>Speaking of seats, this game could possibly get out of control <a target="_blank" title="What do you think of our early predictions for the Heat?" href="/picks/nba/nba-betting-miami-heat-plans-2013-14/33445/">in Miami’s favor</a>, and Wade could take an early seat to rest. With all of that said, Dwayne Wade was outstanding in Game 2, while David West was inefficient. Take Wade.</p> <p><b>Free NBA Pick: </b>Dwayne Wade -4 Points<br /><b style="font-size:1em"> </b></p> <p><br /><b style="font-size:1em">Total Assists + Rebounds For: Lance Stephenson<br /></b><b style="font-size:1em">'Over' 12 -115<br /></b><b style="font-size:1em">'Under' 12 -115<br /></b><span style="font-size:1em">This is one prop that I find to be a “slam dunk” in favorite of the 'over.' <a target="_blank" title="Should the Heat be worried about Lance Stephenson?" href="">Stephenson isn’t a pure scorer</a>; he’s an intangibles man who’s capable of tossing out a triple-double at any time.

Look for Bosh to bounce back after a <a href="/picks/nba/fade-pacers-vs-heat-game-2-nba-picks/39686/" title="Check out my winning pick for Game 2 Pacers vs. Heat" target="_blank">poor game 2</a>.
