Miami Heat Betting

The Miami Heat have blown hot and cold, losing five of their last six games on the road. That could be a factor when they visit the Cavaliers Monday. Making things harder is that Jimmy Butler will reportedly be not suiting up. This means that coach Erik Spoelstra will need to get great performances from Goran Dragic and Jae Crowder against the Cavs. Improving defensively could also help considering Miami has been atrocious in their road games.

Players to watch: J. Butler SF 47 GP 47 GS 34.4 MIN 20.6 PTS 1.9 OR 5 DR 6.9 REB 6.2 AST 1.8 STL 0.6 BLK 2.3 TO 1.4 PF 2.7 AST/TO 23.9 PER

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to adjust under the watch of new head coach JB Bickerstaff. Although the morale is up once again, the Cavs still need to play smart basketball. Turnovers have been hurting them, something they cannot afford against the Heat. Their play on both offense and defense leaves a lot to be desired, meaning it will be a long night for the Cavs.
