Brooklyn Nets vs Miami Heat 2/29/2020 Betting Odds
Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets hope to end a three-game losing skid but their chances are not that high against Miami. Their success will depend on how Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert will perform. With key stars out for the season, both need to step and lead the offensive for head coach Kenny Atkinson. Improving their defensive effort against the Heat could help. They are allowing opponents 110.6 points per game, something they cannot afford against a team like Miami.

Miami Heat Betting
The Heat continue to rev up its drive heading into the NBA playoffs. They are coming off a win over the Dallas Mavericks, looking to make it back-to-back with a win at home. Jimmy Butler had a sterling performance against the Mavs with 26 markers and five boards. Duncan Robinson backed him up with 24 points and five rebounds with four other players ending in double figures. Miami limits opponents to just 109.3 points per game but tightening up would be better.
