Offensively, San Antonio is putting up 113.9 points per game while shooting 47.3 percent from the field. DeMar DeRozan has been leading the team with 22.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 18.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per contest.

Miami is coming off a pair of road losses to the Nets and the Knicks over the weekend. The Heat are now 27-12 on the season, 17-1 at home, 22-15-2 against the spread and 24-14-1 with the over.

NBA Betting Trends

San Antonio

The Spurs are 6-1-1 against the spread in their last eight road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games as an underdog.

Miami

The Heat are 14-4-1 against the spread in their last 19 home games, but just 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games as a favorite.

Prediction:

These two haven’t met this season. The Spurs have been playing well, covering against the likes of the Raptors, Celtics and Bucks. The Heat have lost their last two games, but both were on the road. They have played well at home as of late, seeing a nice defensive boost on their home floor. The Spurs have struggled on defense this season, which should be a problem against a Miami team that is among the best-shooting teams in the NBA. I expect the Heat to shoot their way to a cover at home against a surging Spurs squad.

NBA Prediction: Miami Heat -5
