Heat vs 76ers Game 3 Prediction and NBA Odds
Heat vs 76ers Game 3 Prediction and NBA Odds: Philadelphia 76ers is predicted to win Game 3 of the playoffs against Miami Heat as per the latest prediction.

The Philadelphia 76ers will be desperate for a win at their home arena of the Wells Fargo Center when they host the Miami Heat for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Friday night. The 76ers couldn’t get going in the first two games of the series and are currently trailing by 2 games.

A loss in the next game can almost end their hopes to advance further in the postseason. They need to improve their shooting which seemed terrible in the last game as well as they shot just 8 for 30. The 76ers have never made a comeback after dropping the first two games of a series in 19 rounds. 

The Miami Heat will aim to make things difficult for the 76ers once again in Game 3 and extend their lead. It was another brilliant performance from Bam Adebayo as he added 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 assists to his name in Game 2.

Miami has never lost any of the last 18 matchups after taking a 2-0 lead. A win in the last game also improved Eric Spoelstra’s record in the postseason to 91-59, promoting him to the fourth spot on the list of coaches with the highest win percentage in the NBA.

The absence of the champion player and MVP finalist, Joel Embiid in this round has been a big disadvantage for Philadelphia. Embiid is recovering from a right orbital fracture and it is expected that he will make a comeback in Game 3. The status of Kyle Lowry who is suffering from a hamstring injury is still questionable for Miami.

Heat vs 76ers Game 3 Prediction and NBA Odds: Predicted Winner

The return of Joel Embiid can give a major boost to the 76ers in Game 3. However, they still need a complete effort from all players to secure a home win against the mighty Heat.

On the other hand, the Miami Heat have the winning momentum on their side. They will look to put pressure on the hosts from the first quarter and head for another victory. The prediction and betting platform are interestingly favouring the Philadelphia 76ers for Game 3.
