Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards 2/7/2022 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat are still the best team in the NBA Eastern Conference with their record now at 34-20 and they own a half-a-game lead over the Chicago Bulls. This team is now on back-to-back wins prevailing against the San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets. That short run made the overtake of the Bulls for Coach Erik Spoelstra to secure the coaching stint at the upcoming NBA All-Star Game and lead Team Durant. Jimmy Butler will be joining him at the NBA All-Star Weekend and some say that Tyler Herro should have been there with them. Bam Adebayo is back and the Heat are poised for a huge run.
Players to watch: J. Butler SF 35 GP 35 GS 33.9 MIN 21.9 PTS 1.9 OR 4.4 DR 6.3 REB 6.3 AST 1.8 STL 0.5 BLK 2 TO 1.4 PF 3.1 AST/TO 26.57 PER
T. Herro PG 45 GP 10 GS 32.9 MIN 20.1 PTS 0.6 OR 4.2 DR 4.8 REB 4 AST 0.6 STL 0.2 BLK 2.8 TO 1.5 PF 1.4 AST/TO 15.06 PER

Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards now find themselves fighting to get back in at least the play-in tournament contention in the NBA Eastern Conference at 11th place. Their record is now at 24-28 and it is very close between them and the Atlanta Hawks along with the slumping New York Knicks. Bradley Beal has a big drop-off from last season and that has been made known as he will miss the NBA All-Star Game. On the bright side, Kyle Kuzma has been fulfilling his role as a prime player in the NBA while Montrezl Harrell is back as a lethal enforcer off the bench. Even with that, it is not enough to salvage the Wizards’ dip.
Players to Watch: B. Beal SG 40 GP 40 GS 36 MIN 23.2 PTS 1 OR 3.8 DR 4.7 REB 6.6 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 3.4 TO 2.4 PF 2 AST/TO 18.41 PER
K. Kuzma SF 49 GP 49 GS 33 MIN 16.2 PTS 1.2 OR 7.6 DR 8.8 REB 2.8 AST 0.7 STL 0.9 BLK 2.2 TO 1.8 PF 1.3 AST/TO 15.65 PER
M. Harrell C 45 GP 3 GS 24.4 MIN 14.1 PTS 2.1 OR 4.7 DR 6.8 REB 2.1 AST 0.4 STL 0.7 BLK 1.1 TO 1.9 PF 2 AST/TO 24.80 PER.
