Online sports betting on the Miami Heat has been better than expected the last few games as the Heat have played without leading scorer Dwyane Wade.
Miami was 2-1 before Tuesday’s online sports betting game without Wade in the lineup. Wade was injured in Miami’s offshore sports betting win over New Jersey last week and has not played since.
Online sports betting has Wade averaging 26 points, six assists and five rebounds per game so it would be logical to assume Miami would struggle without him. That has not been the case though as the Heat look better in some respects in offshore sports betting without Wade in the lineup. Wade is officially listed as “day-to-day” on the online sports betting injury report but he is really not that close to returning. “You have a reality check real fast when you do something on one leg and try to do it on the other leg and it ain’t the same,” Wade said, “We’ll see how it feels from one day to the next. Hopefully, it doesn’t take too long. But if I have to be smart about it, then I will [wait].”
Miami is in 7th place in the Eastern Conference so they really can’t afford to have Wade out for a long period of time in offshore sports betting. “There’s still weakness,” said coach Erik Spoelstra, “I saw him doing some activity and movement. He was sweating. It’s a step in the right direction.” Miami doesn’t play again until Saturday in online sports betting but Wade may not be ready then.
The Heat have really not had great chemistry this online sports betting season. Many of the players have been criticized for not producing and Wade has really not been helped the online sports betting situation. Michael Beasley is one player who has benefited from Wade being out of the lineup. Online sports betting has him averaging 21.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, two assists and two steals in the three games since Wade was injured. “D. Wade, of course he carries a lot of the load around here, but without the rest of the team, he doesn’t average 30 points a game,” Beasley said. “You can’t win with [only] 30 points a game. It’s a team effort. We’re getting there. I think we took big strides this road trip.” Miami plays 10 of its next 12 games at home as offshore sports betting indicated, so they can make a move in the Eastern Conference.
