Washington Wizards Betting

In their last game, they won against the Detroit Pistons by six points to snap a three-game skid. Bradley Beal looks to have shaken the rust already as he finished with 29 points and six assists while Ian Mahinmi is still taking the starting position at center to finish with 21 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. Bryant came off the bench and he had 13 points, six rebounds and a block in 21 minutes of action. On the other hand, Bertans is another player that seeks to shake off the cobwebs and he did fairly well with 8 points and three rebounds in 23 minutes. But this is the Heat they are facing and at home, they are an elite team that carries some energy coming from their crowd and they have to come in with their best game of the season to have a chance.

Miami Heat Betting

After a skid in San Antonio, Miami sealed an overtime win against the Sacramento Kings by five points. The team played without Jimmy Butler and rookie Kendrick Nunn took over leading the team with 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists. James Johnson stepped up from the bench as he did 22 points, six rebounds, three assists and two blocks while Bam Adebayo anchored the paint with 16 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. Goran Dragic finished with 18 points while Duncan Robinson added 12 points as a starter. There are too many players that can fill in the shoes of Butler while he is away and credit the team’s new profound winning culture this season.
