San Antonio Spurs at Miami Heat
Wednesday, January 15, 2020 at 7:30 PM (American Airlines Arena)
MIA -5.5 TOTAL 222
The San Antonio Spurs go to the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida, to take on the Miami Heat on Wednesday. The San Antonio Spurs are coming off of a win over the defending NBA champions Toronto Raptors. The San Antonio Spurs have won three of their last four games, and have found some groove in this part of the season.
The San Antonio Spurs are 17-21 on the season but have been improving as of late. There were a lot of questions on if the San Antonio Spurs should decide to be sellers in the trade deadline, and begin their tank. However, it doesn't look like the San Antonio Spurs have plans to tank, as they still have a chance for the playoffs in the Western Conference, and will likely want to compete for as long as Gregg Popovich is still head coach, and their playoff streak is still alive.
Miami Heat is coming off two straight losses, losing to the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks. Both games came down to a combined seven points, as the Miami Heat has played games close, but a loss to the New York Knicks should always be concerning.
The Miami Heat are 27-12 on the season and have been one of the biggest surprise teams of the NBA. Also, the way that the Miami Heat play has been astounding, as Jimmy Butler is the star player, but he has proven he does not need to post 30 points a game, as there is usually a different top score two or three times a week.
San Antonio is 15-22-1 ATS this season
Spurs are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight road games.
Miami is 22-15-2 ATS this season
Heat are 14-4-1 ATS in their last 19 home games.
This game will be extremely close as the San Antonio Spurs are playing much better basketball than their record would show. The Miami Heat are playing worst basketball than the record would show, but I'm not too sure on how reflective their recent run is to their talent. I think the Miami Heat are the better team in this one, and I believe that they will finally break their losing streak as I don't see them losing too many games in a row with the way that they play. Final Score Prediction, Miami Heat win 110 - 107.
