Miami Heat Betting

The Heat won six of their last seven games on Monday with a 117-100 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo scored 21 points each, while rookies Kenrick Nunn and Tyler Herro scored 19 and 18 respectively for the Heat, who shot 51 percent from the field and dished out 29 assists in the game.

Players to Watch: Jimmy Butler (18.9 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 6.7 APG), Kendrick Nunn (16.9 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 3.2 APG), Goran Dragic (15.3 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 5.3 APG)

Houston Rockets Betting

Three straight losses against elite competitions sent the Houston Rockets straight back to earth after racking up eight straight wins. James Harden is still putting up phenomenal numbers, but he’s missing help from his supporting cast, especially Russell Westbrook who has been on a shooting funk lately.

Players to Watch: James Harden (37.9 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 8.0 APG), Russell Westbrook (22.2 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 6.8 APG), Clint Capela (14.6 PPG, 14.6 PPG, 1.0 APG)

Miami Heat vs Houston Rockets Betting Picks

The spread set for this game by most sports betting sites could have been a lot narrower if Jimmy Butler’s availability in this game isn’t questionable. Without Butler, the Heat will indeed face a tall order of repeating against James Harden and company.

Moneyline: The Heat are 2-1 SU against the Rockets in the last three meetings, including the 27-point beatdown they gave to Houston in October. Miami would have a big chance of sweeping their regular-season series with the Rockets, but Butler’s absence really hits them hard.

ATS: Expect Miami to play hard in every possession, trying to keep the game close down to the final seconds. Still, I still think the Rockets have more firepower in this game to cover the 7-point spread.

TOTALs: The total opened at 227 points. OVER is the obvious pick here since we have two of the best offensive teams in the NBA going head-to-head.

Score Prediction: 122-114 Rockets
