The Heat are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Heat last 5 overall. The under is 9-4 in 76ers last 13 overall. The Heat are 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
With all the players missing on both sides due to COVID-19, the 76ers are probably the better team here. However, I'm not laying big chalk with a team missing a lot of key players. Also, while the Heat will be severely undermanned, they're playing a 76ers team that played last night. I'm assuming this is isn't going to be easy for the 76ers with so many guys getting big minutes last night. Possible tired legs. Give me the points if forced to pick here.
