Miami Heat Betting

The road has been very tough for the Miami Heat as they are 12-14 this season. They are on an acid test as they are on their road trip in the west and they have not won any game yet in two games. They were defeated by the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Clippers by wide margins. Coming to this game, Jimmy Butler is questionable to play and their new trade deadline acquisitions are still on their way. It will be up to Goran Dragic to bring in the energy for this team with the absence of Butler and Bam Adebayo has to establish himself inside since Hassan Whiteside is not playing for the Blazers.

Players to watch: B. Adebayo PF 51 GP 51 GS 34.7 MIN 16.1 PTS 2.5 OR 7.8 DR 10.4 REB 4.8 AST 1.2 STL 1.2 BLK 2.7 TO 2.4 PF 1.8 AST/TO 20.72 PER

Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Portland Trail Blazers were very vocal on their last game when Rudy Gobert’s block was supposed to be a goaltend and it cost them the game. This team has lost two of their last three games and as they were getting their momentum again, a costly call dropped their morale. It is up to Damian Lillard to carry the team on his back, not just with his gameplay and but emotionally as well after that controversial call. Expect him to dictate the tempo as this team lacks the interior presence with the absence of Hassan Whiteside and expect them to use their speed against Miami Heat.

Players to Watch: D. Lillard PG 51 GP 51 GS 37.1 MIN 29.8 PTS 0.5 OR 3.9 DR 4.3 REB 7.9 AST 1 STL 0.3 BLK 2.9 TO 1.7 PF 2.7 AST/TO 27.15 PER
