While some teams struggle to play on back-to-back nights, the Heat have been profitable for bettors playing on no rest. In their 10 games playing on back-to-back nights, Miami covered in six of those contests and is also a healthy 8-3 against the number as a road favorite this season. They're also 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and have covered in eight of their last nine games versus Eastern Conference opponents.
On the other side, the Knicks have been a disaster. They've failed to cover the spread in six of their last seven home games and are just 3-8 against the number in their last 11 games overall. Even though they beat Orlando 108-95 at home on Friday night, the Knicks are still in the midst of a 2-8 tailspin.
