NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games as a road favorite and 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games following a win.

San Antonio

The Spurs are 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 games as a home underdog, but 8-21 ATS in their last 29 home games.

Prediction:

The Heat grabbed the win earlier this week at home as a 5-point favorite. They have won and covered in their last three against the Spurs as a franchise. The Heat have had some struggles on the road, losing to the Knicks, Nets, Magic and Wizards in recent outings. The Spurs are coming off the loss at home to the Hawks and Gregg Popovich really let the team have hit. I think San Antonio will respond at home against a Heat team that it just saw that struggles on the road. I don’t trust Miami to be able to put up its normal offense and I look for the Spurs to come out with a little more energy today.

NBA Prediction: San Antonio Spurs +1
