The Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers will battle for a berth in the NBA Finals on Monday night as the two teams meet in the deciding Game 7 of the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals.
Indiana forced Game 7 on Saturday night with a 91-77 victory as a 3-point home underdog on the NBA betting lines at the sportsbooks. Paul George led the Pacers with 28 points in that win, while LeBron James was good for 29 points for the Heat.
Miami is just 2-5 ATS in their past 7 home games and the over is 4-1 in the past 5 here in Miami.
