Breaking down the Golden StateWarriors vs. Miami Heat matchup on Tuesday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m.  — our expert pick and betting prediction for tonight's game.

The Golden State Warriors take on the Miami Heat on Tuesday night, and each side comes in feeling very different about their recent play.

Golden State has lost three of its last four games, while Miami has emerged victorious in four of its last six. So, where does the betting value lie in this one? Let's dive in.

Pick: Under 218.5 · Warriors -2

Golden State Warriors

Pick: Under 218.5 · Warriors -2

The Warriors enter this game losing four out of their last six contests. It has been tough sledding for a dynasty-level team, and now pundits are questioning if this is the end.

I'm personally selling that narrative and buying low on the Warriors right now. They recently returned both Steph Curry and Chris Paul, while Draymond Green and Jonathan Kuminga are truly playing great basketball.

They still have a superior coaching staff, shooting opponents have to respect, and experience to get them through these tough stretches. The Warriors are the clear sharp side in this game despite being on the road.

Miami Heat

The Heat have morphed into one of the hardest teams to figure out in the NBA. They started on a blistering win streak after the All-Star break before quickly shifting course and losing four straight.

In the last 10 days, they've had some impressive wins, beating Cleveland badly while shorthanded. But they've also suffered some bad losses, dropping one to the depleted 76ers.

In this game, the story remains a lack of depth because of mounting injuries.

Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro and Kevin Love are confirmed out, while Jaime Jaquez and Caleb Martin are questionable. The Heat will have Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo to rely on, but they will have to do some heavy lifting against a team that can score in bunches.

Warriors vs Heat

Betting Pick & Prediction

The betting market has backed the Warriors since open as the clear sharp side. The move from -1 to -2.5 is notable but still playable. One and two are not key numbers in the NBA, and due to late-game fouling, it's uncommon to have a game end that close.

We can also play the under 218.5, as this is clearly trending down. You can either gain CLV with the under if you see anything above 217, or try and play the current market number on the evident sharp side of Warriors -2/-2.5.

Both are viable plays for one unit.

Pick: Under 218.5 · Warriors -2
