Miami Heat Betting
The win-lose pattern of the Miami Heat continues and if you follow it right after this team won, they will lose the next. The Heat defeated the Washington Wizards by just four points, 128-124, and they will be coming in the game short-handed with a number of players in quarantine. These include key rotation players such as Jimmy Butler, Avery Bradley, Mo Harkless, Bam Adebayo, and Kendrick Nunn. Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson should take the bulk of the minutes here and the Heat may be forced to put Kelly Olynyk back early as he recovers from the injury. Just tough luck for Miami who just can’t catch a break.

One-by-one, the Philadelphia 76ers are getting their players back and hopes to stop the bleeding soon as the team just lost three consecutive matches. Joel Embiid is back and Ben Simmons should be playing as well. The team still has starters Seth Curry and Tobias Harris still battling COVID-19 while Shake Milton and Tony Ferguson are forced to go into quarantine.

Winning and getting back to their groove is the priority now for the Sixers for this game.
