The Celtics are significant favorites in Game 5. If they win that, they'll have two straight wins, a lot of momentum and will likely be favored in Game 6 even though it's in Miami. The Celtics were 4.5-point favorites on the road in Game 3, even though they lost the first two games of the series. And Boston would be a big favorite again at home in a Game 7, if it can extend the series that far. You can also bet on a specific quarter or the first or second half of a basketball game. Sportsbooks release the same key betting options – spreads, totals, money lines and props – on quarters and both halves of a basketball game.
