Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards 1/9/2021 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat has been inconsistent and after seven games, they own a losing record of 3-4. This team will hope to even up their wins and losses but they would need to do that on the road. Jimmy Butler has been leading the team but the defense has not been working for them recently. This team continues to run a short rotation but the fight has been lacking so far. Kelly Olynyk has been inserted into the starting lineup after Mo Harkless has been sidelined with an injury. Tyler Herro has been on-and-off but during their last game, Duncan Robinson looks like he has been coming out on the scoring slump.

Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards had great performances from Bradley Beal and he followed up his 60-point night with 41 markers against the Boston Celtics. Even with his efforts, the team has been losing and the defense has been lacking. Thomas Bryant has been terrible during their last game and he is expected to get more touches as Russell Westbrook is expected to miss the match due to load management. Rui Hachimura is back but he has his struggles getting to his spots. Deni Avdija has been struggling and has laid a goose egg during their last game. This team will look to Ish Smith to fill in the starting PG role when Westbrook is out.
