Heat vs. Nets Pick

NBA Predictions: Are the Heat going to win as small favorite at Nets? 1/19/18

Will the Miami Heat record the victory tonight when they are small favorites at the Brooklyn Nets? Tip-off is at 7:30PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Miami. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Heat are a 3-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 208 points. Miami opened as a 2.5-point favorite, while the over-under has climbed from 206 points.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Miami. As of Friday afternoon, 72 percent of public bets have been placed on the visiting Heat.

Injury Report: Miami guard Tyler Johnson sat out last game with a sprained ankle and is out again tonight. Dion Waiters is out for the season with an ankle injury. Okaro White is out until the All-Star Break with a foot injury. Rodney McGruder is out until mid-April with a stress fracture in his leg. For the Nets, D'Angelo Russell is probable to return to action tonight after missing the last two months recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Jeremy Lin is out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon suffered in the season opener.

Who the Trends Like: Miami is 10-2-1 ATS in its last 13 meetings overall and 19-7 ATS in its last 26 meetings in Brooklyn.

Who We Like: Miami has been red-hot, winning eight of its last nine games. Prior to this stretch, the Heat were blown out 111-87 on their home court by the Nets. Look for Miami to exact some revenge here. Fitting Russell back into the grand scheme of things will take some time for Brooklyn and expect the chemistry to be a bit off tonight. I like the Heat to cover the small spread.
