Basketball betting on Saturday has one of those rare home and home matchups as the Milwaukee Bucks host the Miami Heat.
The two teams will play again on Monday in NBA betting at Miami. Basketball betting has this as the last of a three-game road trip for the Heat. It is also a back-to-back for Miami as they were in Detroit last night in basketball betting. The Heat have done quite well at Milwaukee through the years. In fact, the Heat have the best record of any team against the Bucks in Milwaukee, going 24-15 in their previous 39 match-ups at the Bradley Center. Miami is one of only two teams (New Orleans) to have a winning road record against the Bucks in Milwaukee. The Bucks are playing three home and home NBA betting series this season. They split their first one with the Raptors and they have one in March against Washington.
The Heat have won and covered the basketball betting odds in six of the last ten against Milwaukee. The two teams have not played since last March when Miami won 102-85 at home in NBA betting. The Heat also won 102-99 at Milwaukee last season in basketball betting.
The Heat are hanging around in the Eastern Conference but you never really know what to expect out of Miami. They have been better on the road vs. the basketball betting line than at home. Miami is led by guard Dwyane Wade who is fifth in the NBA at 27.1 points per game. He is 12th in the league with 6.2 assists per game. Offense has actually been the problem for the Heat this season as they are in the bottom third of the league. Their defense has been solid though, ranking 8th in the NBA.
Even though the Bucks have a losing record straight up, they do have a winning record against the NBA betting odds. They actually have a winning record in basketball betting at home and on the road. They are 19th on offense and 16th on defense so they don’t do anything that well. They do have Brandon Jennings though and he is usually worth the price of admission. The Bucks are a team that has been going over the total at home this season in basketball betting so that is something to look at in this game on Saturday.
