Miami Heat vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Picks
Expect the NBA spread for this game to shrink a bit if the Heat can get Justise Winslow’s service for this game. The do-it-all forward has missed a bulk of games for Miami due to a concussion. His presence will provide the Heat another scorer and facilitator whenever Jimmy Butler sits on the bench.
Moneyline: The Sixers are 2-1 in their last 3 games with the Heat and a perfect 6-0 at the Wells Fargo Center. However, the Heat are 4-0 on the road against Eastern Conference teams. Butler is going to be the game-changer in his return to Philadelphia, leading Miami to a big win against an East elite.
ATS: The Heat are on a four-game ATS winning streak heading into this game. The Sixers will provide them a lot of problems, but the Heat will ultimately hit the key baskets late to cover the spread and win outright.
TOTALs: The total for this game will go OVER 216 points. Both just about average offensive teams, the Sixers and Heat are norming a combined 221 points this season. Picking OVER would have been a dumb move if the total has been set in the 220s, but exceeding 216 points looks very achievable to me.
Score Prediction: 116-110 Heat
