NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are 1-4 ATS in their last five Friday games. Miami is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games as a road favorite.

Sacramento

The Kings are 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 home games. Sacramento is 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven games as a home underdog.

Prediction:

Miami made moves to bolster its roster at the trade deadline and will be looking to bounce back from its win at LA tonight. Expect the Heat to come out firing and take advantage of a Kings squad that has been inconsistent all season. While Miami has been far better at home, it has played better on the road as of late and will want to right the ship on this road trip. I'm siding with the better team tonight.
