NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are 5-0 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Miami is 7-0 ATS in its last seven games versus the Eastern Conference.

Philadelphia

The Sixers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall. Philadelphia is 0-7 ATS in its last seven games versus the Southeast Division.

Prediction:

Both teams are on a back-to-back, but Philly gets to remain at home while Miami traveled. The Sixers have been awesome at home, whereas the Heat have been much more vulnerable on the road. I think all signs point to a strong performance from Philadelphia here as it looks to continue its recent strong play and protect its home floor.
