Lakers at Heat picks and predictions
Heat 116, Lakers 109
Because the Heat (-330) are such heavy favorites, I will PASS on the money line. Taking Miami to win outright is not advisable considering the current odds to secure the victory.
Against the spread
Assuming that F Lebron James is active in the second part of the next group, LAKERS +7.5 (-102) is an attractive bet in this game. If James is ruled out, then I’ll lean on the Heat to cover the spread as Los Angeles struggles when he’s not on the court.
Heat are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games against a team with a losing road record.
OVER 223.5 (-110) it’s also an intriguing bet if James suits up for the Lakers. Los Angeles has scored 115 or more points in 4 straight games, so we’ll just need Miami to put up a good amount of points at home to blow the Over.
The Lakers have hit the Over in 5 straight games and in each of the last 4 games playing on 0 days rest.
