Who the Public Likes: Miami. As of Sunday morning, 63 percent of public bets have been placed on the Heat.

Injury Report: Bucks forward Jabari Parker is recovering from a torn ACL and is targeting a return a week before the All-Star Game. Mirza Teletovic is out indefinitely after surgery on his right knee and pulmonary emboli on both lungs. For the Heat, Justise Winslow has been out of action with a knee strain but is expected to return for today's game. Tyler Johnson has been out with neck pain and is questionable tonight. Dion Waiters will undergo season-ending ankle surgery. James Johnson missed the last game due to a one-game suspension, but will return for today's game. Okaro White is out until the All-Star Break with a foot injury. Rodney McGruder is out until mid-April after leg surgery.

Who the Trends Like: The under is 13-6-2 in the last 21 meetings overall and 13-5-1 in the last 19 meetings in Miam. Miami is 4-0 ATS in its last four games versus a team with a winning straight up record.

Who We Like: Miami is on a six-game winning streak, while Milwaukee has lost four of seven. I'll take the hotter team here, plus it is difficult to play on the road across the country for an early afternoon game.
