Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Friday afternoon, 57 percent of the betting public has sided with Miami.

Injury Report: Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. is out until mid-January with a stress reaction in his lower left leg. Heat guard Dion Waiters has missed the last five games with an ankle injury and is out again tonight. Justise Winslow is out indefinitely with a knee strain. .

Who the Trends Like: New York is 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings. The under is 22-8-1 in the last 31 meetings.

Who We Like: Miami has been ravaged by injuries, but have gotten a few key pieces back in recent weeks. The Heat also were benefitted by Detroit being without center Andre Drummond when they met earlier this week. The Knicks have struggled recently in losing five of their last six games, but it has been against strong competition. I like Kristaps Porzingis' chances at a big game tonight. My money is on New York.
