Miami Heat Betting
A strong campaign through the first three weeks of the 2019-20 has made the Heat the dark horse picks for one of the top-4 slots in the Eastern Conference. In Sunday’s 117-108 win over the Detroit Pistons, Jimmy Butler and Kendrick Nunn each scored 20 points, while Goran Dragic added 18 off the bench for the hot-shooting Heat (53 FG%).
Players to Watch: Jimmy Butler (19.4 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 6.6 APG), Kendrick Nunn (16.9 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 2.8 APG), Goran Dragic (16.8 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 4.9 APG)
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been competitive as of late, winning back-to-back against Washington (113-100) and New York (108-87) before coming up just short of upsetting Philadelphia (98-97) in their last game. Tristan Thompson’s terrific play (16.5 PPG and 11.4 RPG) this season is one of the reasons why the Cavs are always a threat in every single game.
Players to Watch: Collin Sexton (18.7 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 2.3 APG), Kevin Love (18.5 PPG, 12.9 RPG, 3.4 APG), Tristan Thompson (16.5 PPG, 11.5 RPG, 2.3 APG)

Miami Heat vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Picks
The Heat could enter the game vs. the Cavs a bit undermanned with Winslow still out with a concussion, and Dragic and Herro possibly sitting out too with injuries. This may open the door for the scrappy Cavaliers to cover the 5-point NBA spread and even pull off an outright win at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, where they are 2-2.
Moneyline: The Heat has been shaky on the road with a 3-3 win-loss card, but as long as they have Jimmy Butler leading the charge, they will be just fine playing a sub .500 team like the Cavs.
ATS: The Heat has swept the Cavs in their last three games by an average margin of 17 points.
TOTALs: This game will go under the NBA over/under totals of 216 points. With both teams’ defenses ranked in the upper half of the league, expect the total score to play around 210 to 200 points.
Score Prediction: 107-98 Heat
