This has been one of the most competitive series in NBA Playoffs betting with each team wining on the other’s floor but surprisingly not many of the games have been close.
NBA Playoffs odds favor the Heat in this game that can be seen on Friday night on ESPN television. The teams split the first four games of this series with the home team winning the first game and the road team winning the next game. The Heat won 107-78 but lost 81-71 as NBA Playoffs odds results indicate. They also split those results against the NBA Playoffs odds. Both of those games also went under the NBA Playoffs betting total. What is weird about this NBA Playoffs odds series is how the games have gone. Each of the first four games was decided by 10 points or more in NBA Playoffs odds.
The Hawks still have not had a great deal of success in Miami recently. They are 3-7 in the last 10 games in South Florida and they are 4-6 against the spread. Atlanta has not been a great road team in recent seasons anyway particularly in NBA Playoffs betting. They didn’t win a game last year on the road against Boston in NBA Playoffs odds. They may have only won Game 4 in Miami because Dwyane Wade was bothered by back spasms. The Hawks still are not scoring much on the road and that could be a problem in this NBA Playoffs odds matchup on Friday.
Miami is still upset they lost Game 4 at home because they could have taken control of the series at 3-1 instead of being tied 2-2 going back to Atlanta. The Heat still have the offensive weapons to cover the NBA Playoffs odds in this game, especially if Wade is at full strength. What is a concern though is that Miami was just a .500 team at home this season versus the pointspread.
Seven of the last ten games between the two teams in Miami have gone under the total including both NBA Playoffs betting games. The Heat were actually a better over team at home than on the road in the regular season but in this series defense has been the story and the NBA Playoffs odds have seen the totals go under.
