NBA Odds: Heat vs. Timberwolves
|Time | Channel||8:00 p.m. ET | BSSUN|
The Heat and Timberwolves face off on Friday night in Minnesota, with both teams looking to avoid a three-game losing streak. Miami has won six of its last 10 games despite the back-to-back losses.
Miami hasn’t been great against the spread (ATS) this year at 23-31-1, but the Timberwolves have a near-identical 24-31-1 record.
The Heat offense has sputtered as of late, averaging a paltry 99.6 points per game over their last three contests. That means this matchup could be an especially low-scoring affair, with the Timberwolves also lacking quite heavily in the offense department. Miami and Minnesota are the 25th and 26th in offensive rating (points scored per 100 possessions), per NBA Advanced Stats.
Though the Timberwolves have been getting some impressive scoring outputs from No. 1 pick Anthony Edwards, who is averaging 23.2 points per game over his last 10, viewers can expect Jimmy Butler and Co. to focus quite a bit of defensive attention on the explosive No. 1 overall pick.
With the veteran-laden Heat thirsty for a win in the midst of their postseason push, sharp bettors are backing them to take care of the Timberwolves on Friday night. Let’s take a look in our latest PRO Report.
