Miami enters with a 6-8 overall record and is 4-8-2 ATS after a 102-93 home loss to Washington. The Wizards are 9-5 overall and 8-6 ATS after the win against the Heat. Miami is 4-1 straight up and 3-2 ATS in five meetings since the start of last season. The over has gone 3-2.

Bet on Heat vs. Wizards

The Wizards won with a big fourth quarter at Miami only days ago, so why shouldn't they return home and beat the same team by fewer points? Because this is the NBA, that's why. Look for Miami to assert itself with a monster game from Whiteside coupled with savvy games from the likes of Dragic and Waiters. Expect the Heat to keep this one close and stay within the number.
