NBA Betting – Miami Heat to Step Up and Even Season Series with OKC
Written by North Shore Sports, INC
Two of the best teams in the league are scheduled to collide against the NBA betting lines at Bookmaker Sportsbook on Wednesday night when the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat square off in their final regular season meeting.
The Miami Heat (37-14, 25-26 ATS) will look to even up the regular season NBA betting series with the (40-12, 30-22 ATS) when the teams lock horns on Wednesday, April 4th; tip-off from the American Airlines Arena is set to go live on ESPN at 8:00 ET.
If anyone doubted the abilities of the Oklahoma City Thunder and scoffed at the fact that they sit atop the Western Conference standings by a comfy margin, you can’t help but question that train of thought after the body of work Head Coach Scott Brooks’ squad has produced over the course of their L/10 games. Kevin Durant and his mates check in a moneymaking 8-2 SU & 7-3 ATS dating back to March 15th, and have beaten the likes of the Clippers, Timberwolves, Heat, Lakers, and Bulls during that stretch.
Last we saw the Thunder take to the hardwood, they toyed with the Chicago Bulls en route to securing the 92-78 home win and NBA betting line cover as six-point chalk; they led by 30 points at one point. Sunday’s win over the Derrick Rose-less Bulls improved Russell Westbrook and his mates to a league-best 13-4 SU versus the Sagarin Ratings Top 10 teams; they currently check in as the second ranked team behind only the Bulls. OKC will host Memphis on the back end of a back-to-back Monday night amidst a six-game winning streak (5-1 ATS), and checks in 17-8 SU & 15-10 ATS as a visitor to date.
What the heck happened to the Heat on Sunday in Beantown? The team looked listless to say the least never once holding a lead and got buried by 19 points as four-point road favorites. The 72 points scored was a season low and they lost for the seventh time in their L/11 on the road. The effort truly came as a surprise with Miami going out and earning a pair of wins and covers versus Dallas and Toronto their previous two times out. They’ll have a day off to try and figure out what went wrong before returning home to face Philadelphia and Oklahoma City on back-to-back nights.
Miami’s just 8-7 SU & a woeful 5-10 versus the closing NBA betting odds when playing on no rest this season; they’ve scored an average of 99.0 PPG and given up 97.9 PPG to its opposition in those games. That said; Head Coach Eric Spoelstra’s squad has been at its absolute best when playing in front of the hometown faithful capturing wins on 21 of 23 occasions while capturing pointspread triumphs in 12 of those contests. D-Wade and his mates have represented well against the best the league has to offer going 11-5 SU the 16 times they faced a foe ranked amongst the Sagarin Ratings Top 10.
NBA Betting Pick: Dating back to the 2009 season, the Heat have had no luck against the Thunder whatsoever compiling just 1-4 SU & ATS records in the L/5 overall meetings. Included in that poor trend line is the team’s most recent 103-87 loss at OKC that took place less than 10 days ago. Miami was outclassed in every respect, allowing the Thunder to shoot better than 52 percent from the field which included a 6-of-11 mark from downtown. While Miami has looked disinterested since the All Star break (10-7 SU & 7-10 ATS), we got a feeling they show up here in a big way to remind the Thunder that it will be far from this easy to cruise to the franchise’s first NBA title. Everyone’s high on OKC right now and very low on the Heat, and if you know anything about investing, you know that’s the exact scenario to pounce. Back the Heat!
So will the Thunder take down yet another opponent en route to locking up the top seed in the West, or will the Heat become that bump in the NBA betting road? Whichever side of the line you toe, take your action over to Bookmaker Sportsbook and be confident in knowing you’ll be playing into some of the most competitive lines in the business!
