Heat fall at Memphis

Miami had its worst showing in about a week on Monday night, suffering a 118-111 loss at Memphis as a 3-point favorite. The Heat are 19-8 on the season, 8-7 on the road, 17-9-1 against the spread and 15-11-1 with the over.

The Heat are putting up 112.2 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.2 percent from the field and 38.2 percent from the arc. Defensively, Miami is allowing 107.3 points per game while opponents shoot 44.2 percent against them. Jimmy Butler is leading the team this year with 21.2 points, 6.4 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game. Kendrick Nunn is adding 16.1 points and 3.6 assists per game.

Philly falls without Embiid

Philadelphia saw a five-game win streak come to an end on Sunday in a 109-89 loss at Brooklyn. The 76ers were without Joel Embiid in the loss due to illness, but he is listed as probable to play today. Philly comes into this game at 20-8 overall, 14-0 at home, 12-13-3 against the spread and 15-12-1 with the under.

The 76ers are putting up 109.3 points per game this season on offense, shooting 47.5 percent from the floor in the process. Defensively, Philly is giving up just 104.1 points per game while holding opponents to 45.3 percent shooting. Embiid is averaging 22.8 points, 12.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game to lead the team while Ben Simmons is adding 14.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 8.2 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games against a team with a winning home record.

Philadelphia

The 76ers are 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games following a loss and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record.

Prediction:

Philly picked up a 113-86 win at home over Miami on Nov. 23. I think the 76ers are going to roll tonight as well. Embiid has been playing very well since getting a pep talk from Shaq and Charles Barkley. This is a game he should be able to take over, as the Heat don’t have the talent in the paint to contain him. Miami is still without some key contributors and that makes it tough for them to find the balance they need on both sides of the ball. On the road, I think it’s going to be a rough night for the Heat.

NBA Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers -7
