The Heat are ranked just outside the Top 10 in defense as bet on basketball stats indicate. The Heat are much weaker on offense but Wade is a superstar scorer and can impact basketball betting odds on a regular basis. Perhaps the addition of Jermaine O’Neal will help the Heat in bet on basketball action but that remains to be seen.
Atlanta has very similar bet on basketball numbers to Miami. The Hawks are just outside the Top 10 in defense as bet on basketball stats have it. Atlanta also struggles somewhat on offense but Johnson can win games on his own. Atlanta may have more depth and overall talent than Miami since Mike Bibby, Al Horford, and Josh Smith can also score.
