The Miami Heat and Charlotte Hornets meet Tuesday in NBA action at Spectrum Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Miami Heat Betting Preview
The Miami Heat look to build on their 5-game winning streak. The Miami Heat have split their last 6 road games. The Miami Heat are averaging 109.5 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 110.3 points on 47.7 percent shooting. Bam Adebayo is averaging 23.2 points and 10.4 rebounds, while Tyler Herro is averaging 22.9 points and 5 rebounds. Jimmy Butler is the third double-digit scorer and Duncan Robinson is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Miami Heat are shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 84.9 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 37.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.6 rebounds per game.
Charlotte Hornets Betting Preview
The Charlotte Hornets need a win after losing 6 of their last 8 games. The Charlotte Hornets have lost 3 straight home games. The Charlotte Hornets are averaging 117.3 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 122.4 points on 48.5 percent shooting. Terry Rozier is averaging 22 points and 4 rebounds, while LaMelo Ball is averaging 21.6 points and 5.3 rebounds. Gordon Hayward is the third double-digit scorer and PJ Washington is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Charlotte Hornets are shooting 29.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte Hornets are allowing 39.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.6 rebounds per game.
Don't look now, but the Miami Heat have won 5 straight games, and they're getting good play out of their role players while Herro and Caleb Martin remain out. The Charlotte Hornets have not only lost 6 of their last 8 games, but they're still without Terry Rozier and Miles Bridges. The Heat have won 7 of the last 9 meetings against the Hornets. You could argue this line should be steeper. Give me the Heat and the chalk.
