According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Heat are the clear underdog at home, as they are getting odds of +7 points against the Spurs tonight. The over/under total for the game has been set at 193 points.

The Heat (29-23) don’t find themselves as a home underdog often, but it’s understandable considering they are playing the Spurs (43-8) who have the second-best record in the NBA. Miami is coming off a 100-93 loss at home to the L.A. Clippers on Sunday. The loss was just the Heat’s second in eight games.

Playing on 1 day rest hasn’t exactly been a good thing for the Heat. In the 2015-16 season, the Heat are just 15-19-1 against the spread and the record drops to 34-49-2 ATS since 2014. That ranks third-worst of any team in the NBA. Conversely, the Spurs haven’t played since Saturday and they are 6-3 ATS this season when playing on at least 2 days of rest.
