How To Bet on the Miami Vs San Antonio NBA Spread

Posted by Henry Watkins on March 22, 2016 in

You would have won a pretty nice chunk of change if, at the beginning of the NBA season, you had predicted that a team that had only lost 11 games to this point in the season would still be 4 games out of the conference lead. That is exactly where the San Antonio Spurs find themselves, as their spectacular season has been somewhat overshadowed by what Golden State are currently doing in Oakland. The one thing that you cannot take away from the Spurs is their unbeaten record at home so far this year, and they are going to have another shot at a perfect home season when the Miami Heat come to town on Wednesday night. The Heat are in the thick of an exciting division race, and cannot afford many more slip-ups between now and the end of the season if they want to be crowned kings of the Southeast.

Why bet on the Miami Heat

The Miami Heat (40-29) are currently occupying the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference, but it’s a lead that’s tenuous at best. They have the same record as the Atlanta Hawks and the Boston Celtics right now, and are well aware that they could easily slip down into 5th with a couple of losses. The Heat have been playing well, though, and are a solid 7-3 in their last 10 games. They have a tricky road game in New Orleans on Tuesday night before this one in San Antonio, and picking up wins in both is not going to be an easy feat. Miami are a game above .500 on the road this season, but have not won in San Antonio since the 2012-13 season, which was when LeBron James was still on the team. The Heat are averaging 99.3 PPG, and are giving up 97.9 PPG.

Why bet on the San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs (59-11) out together their best defensive effort of the season when they took out the Golden State Warriors 87-79 last week, and following that up was always going to be tough. The Spurs had a bit of a letdown in their next game after that, going down on the road in Charlotte. This is not a team that is prone to losing bouts, though, as they have yet to lose consecutive games this season, and have been perfect on home court. Those two stats alone make it seem pretty obvious that they are going to be favorites against the Heat, a team that they have now beaten 4 ties in a row. The Spurs are averaging 104.3 PPG, and are giving up 92.3.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

As I look down the remaining schedule for the Spurs, the only thing I see standing between them and a perfect home record this season I the April 10 game versus the Warriors. I guess that means I like them to dispose of the Heat on Wednesday night.
