76ers a mess on the road
Philadelphia is coming off back-to-back road losses to the Hawks and the Celtics. They have lost their last three road games, all by double figures. The 76ers are 31-19 on the season, 9-17 on the road, 20-26-4 against the spread and 26-23-1 with the under.
The 76ers are allowing just 105.4 points per game this season while opponents shoot 45.4 percent from the field. Offensively, Philly is averaging 108.4 points per game while shooting 46.6 percent from the field. Joel Embiid is leading the team with 23.0 points and 12.1 rebounds per game while Ben Simmons is adding 16.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 8.2 assists per contest.
Heat trying to get on track
Miami is coming off a 102-89 win at Orlando on Saturday, but the Heat are just 4-3 in their last seven games. Miami is now 33-15 on the season, 21-3 at home, 27-19-2 against the spread and 28-19-1 with the over.
The Heat are allowing 107.9 points per game while holding opponents to 44.3 percent from the floor. Miami is putting up 114.8 points per game while shooting 47 percent from the field. Jimmy Butler is leading the team with 20.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game. Bam Adebayo is adding 15.7 points and 10.5 rebounds per contest.
NBA Betting Trends
The 76ers are 5-15-1 against the spread in their last 21 road games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog.
The Heat are 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a win and 1-5 ATS in their last six games on 1 day of rest.
Miami has won two of three against Philly this year, including a 117-116 OT win back on Dec. 28 at home. The 76ers are 9-17 on the road this year and looked awful in their last three road games. I took a chance on them against a short-handed Boston team on Saturday and they completely got owned. Given how well Miami plays at home, I can’t pick the 76ers on the road tonight. They just have not found the right recipe on the road.
