This will be the third time these teams have played each other this month, so there are no surprises. Most meetings between the Heat and Hawks are high scoring, and the over has hit in five of the Heat’s last six road games. The Hawks still don’t play a lick of defense, and the Heat are shooting over 46 percent from the field in their last five games. I have to lean toward the over in this spot.
