The Miami Heat have opened at -5 for Game 3 of their first round matchup against the Indiana Pacers, according to BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

Miami remains in control of this series heading into Game 3. Indiana desperately needs the player formerly known as Victor Oladipo to make an appearance, because he is gamechaning talent who is the team's best player when he is in top form. Indiana will need to brush off not having homecourt to lean on in Game 3 and pick up the win if they intend to avoid getting bounced out of the first round. No team has ever come back when down 0-3 in the first round.
