Heat vs. Celtics player props, odds, 2022 NBA playoff picks for Game 5: Kyle Lowry under 10.5 points

The Miami Heat will be looking to bounce back from a disastrous performance when they play host to the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the 2022Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday night. Miami’s starters combined for just 18 points in a 102-82 loss in Game 4 on Monday. Small forward Jimmy Butler was held to six points on 3-of-14 shooting. Oddsmakers are expecting him to bounce back on Wednesday, with the latest NBA prop bet lines from Caesars Sportsbook listing the over-under for Butler’s total points at 24.5. 

Butler has scored 40 points twice this postseason, but he has scored 14 combined points over his last two games. Will he respond with a strong performance on Wednesday night? And which other NBA playoff props should you be targeting? Before making any NBA prop picks for Wednesday’s showdown, you need to see the Heat vs. Celtics prop predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit for $100 players on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters the second week of the conference finals of the 2022 NBA playoffs on a stunning 87-59 roll on all top-rated NBA picks, returning over $2,100. Anyone following it has seen huge returns. 

With Boston vs. Miami on Wednesday night (see tickets at StubHub), the model has evaluated the NBA player props and found five strong bets. You can only see them here.

Top NBA player prop bets for Celtics vs. Heat

After simulating Game 5 of Heat vs. Celtics 10,000 times, the model predicts that Miami point guard Kyle Lowry goes under 10.5 total points. Lowry has simply not been able to get healthy this postseason, missing the final two games of the opening round series and then three games in the divisional round. He also missed the first two games of this series before scoring a playoff-high 11 points in Game 3. 

Lowry was ineffective in Game 4, scoring just three points against the stingy Boston defense. He is averaging just 6.4 points per game during the 2022 NBA playoffs, going over this total just one time. SportsLine’s model is projecting another single-digit scoring output from the veteran on Wednesday, providing some value on the under.
