Heat vs. 76ers Prediction & Pick
Miami fell behind as soon as the ball was put into play on Saturday and trailed by as much as 22 to a team that is competing for the No. 1 overall pick. The Heat travel to Philly with no momentum and an injury report filled with big names. Both Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry are listed as questionable to play.
The 76ers are still within reach of the No. 1 seed and should be motivated to bounce back from a home loss. Philadelphia should be able to hold a struggling Miami offense in check as it boasts a top-five defensive efficiency rating and allows only 110.4 points per game this season (No. 3 in NBA).
Philly has won 13 of its last 17 home games against Miami, so back the 76ers with confidence.
Final Score Prediction: Heat: 103 | 76ers: 114
Heat vs. 76ers Best Bet
The Heat are a team worth fading at this point in the season. They have scored less than 110 points in seven of their last nine games and are a dismal 1-8 against the spread (ATS) during that span. Miami has lost four of its last six games inside the Wells Fargo Center by an average of 13.5 points as well.
Philadelphia is 5-1 ATS in its last six games overall and 5-2 ATS in its last seven games against a Southeast Division foe. Keep in mind Joel Embiid has a history of regular season success against Miami as he averaged 23.7 points, 13.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in three meetings last season.
Bet: Philadelphia 76ers -6 (-110)
