Miami is 34-26 overall, 19-12 at home and 32-27-1 against the spread. Phoenix is 15-45 overall, 4-24 on the road and 23-37 against the spread. Miami has won 10 straight over Phoenix, covering the spread in nine of the last 10 meetings. These two have hit the over in their last two meetings, including a 103-95 win for Miami in Phoenix on Jan. 8.
Miami has won two straight and five of its last seven while going 6-1 against the spread in those seven games. They should most certainly win today’s game, but this is quite a spread to deal with. Still, Phoenix is just 7-21 against the spread as a road team this season, which is the worst record in the NBA. The Suns are also just 5-9 ATS as a double-digit underdog. Phoenix is in the tank, so Miami should be able to cruise to a win.
