Hornets vs. Heat Pick

Who Oddsmakers Like: Miami. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Heat are listed as a 4.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 205 points. Miami opened as a 5-point favorite, while the total has gone up from 204.

Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Miami. As of Saturday morning, 55 percent of public bets have been on the Heat.

Injury Report: Hornets center Cody Zeller is out until mid-February as he recovers from surgery on a torn meniscus. For the Heat, guard Tyler Johnson has missed the last five games with a sprained ankle and is questionable tonight. Udonis Haslem missed the last game tending to a personal matter and is questionable tonight. Dion Waiters is out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery. Okaro White is out until the All-Star Break with an ankle injury. Rodney McGruder is out until mid-April as he recovers from a stress fracture in his leg.

Who the Trends Like: Charlotte is 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Miami and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings overall.

Who We Like: Miami is a slow-tempo team that has had totals of totals of 196 or less points in three of its last four games. Charlotte played last night and will have some fatigue after a fast-paced game. The adjustment of playing a faster game in Atlanta to what the Heat present will be too much to overcome. The under has been the right play much of the time in this series and I like it again tonight.
