The Miami Heat is favored in NBA wagering online as they host the Phoenix Suns in a game that can be seen on ESPN.
The Heat has been somewhat of a disappointment this season but they are still very talented and a popular team with gamblers making an NBA bet at Sbgglobal.
The Heat has had a few days to prepare for the Suns and they used those days to get Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem healthy. Both should play on Wednesday night. The Heat is coming off a win on Saturday against Toronto although they did not cover the big point spread. The Heat made a change in that game as Zydrunas Ilgauskas started at center. That experiment seemed to work out well and Ilgauskas will remain the starting center over Joel Anthony.
Suns 6-4 SU, 5-5 ATS
The Phoenix Suns actually have the same straight up record as the Heat and they are a better team against the point spread. Phoenix comes into this game on a three-game winning streak and they have won five of their last six overall. The Suns are scoring points in bunches as they are second in the league in points per game. They still don’t play any defense but that is nothing new. Phoenix has gotten excellent play out of Steve Nash and Jason Richardson this season.
Heat 6-4 SU, 4-6 ATS
Miami has actually lost four times already this season and most people didn’t see that coming. The Heat does have some good numbers though as they are in the top 10 in both points per game and points against. Miami is getting good play from Dwyane Wade and LeBron James but Chris Bosh really has not found his way so far this season. Miami has no real inside presence but that should not be a problem in this matchup against the Suns.
Suns Struggle at Miami
The Suns are just 2-7 against the NBA wagering online number in the last nine meetings at Miami. Phoenix does have some good overall numbers recently though as they are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference and they are 41-19-1 ATS in their last 61 games overall. And we know Miami’s recent numbers are not that great as they are 0-4 ATS in their last four home games. They are 35-17-2 ATS in their last 54 vs. the Pacific Division though.
