The Miami Heat need a nice win after losing five of their last six games. The Miami Heat are averaging 96.4 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 95.5 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Chris Bosh is averaging 18.8 points and 7.9 rebounds while Dwayne Wade is averaging 18.5 points and 4.6 assists. Hassan Whiteside is grabbing 11.3 rebounds and Tyler Johnson is dishing 2.1 assists.

The Miami Heat have split their last 10 home games. Beno Udrih and Chris Anderson are questionable.
The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Heat are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The Bucks are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Bucks continue to struggle defensively and the identity of this team is all out of wack. The Heat usually play well at home and should be getting a guy back or two. I'll eat the reasonable chalk.
