Betting Analysis

Brandon Anderson — The Heat are not playing well. Their defense ranked bottom five after the All-Star break, and the team was effectively as bad as they looked on Tuesday night. The problem is Miami plays to the level of its opponent. That means ugly games against the Hawks and Bulls of the world, but the Heat are also 23-24 against teams above .500. They almost always play close games and are 14-8 in three-point games and fourth in fourth quarter Net Rating, and Jimmy Butler can be the best player in any game.

Unlike the Bulls, the Heat take a ton of 3s, which makes them a bigger underdog threat. They also have real options to throw at Giannis Antetokounmpo, and they’ll slow these games down, grind them out, and suddenly it’s a five-point game late that can go either way.

Milwaukee beats Miami, but the Heat make them fight for it. I’ll likely lean Heat +2.5 or over 5.5 games.

THE PICK: Lean Heat +2.5
