The Heat Host The Warriors In South Beach


The Golden State Warriors will be on the road this Wednesday night, December 12 for a betting matchup against the Miami Heat that is set to take place at the American Airlines Arena, with tip off schedule for 7:35 PM EST. The Oddsmakers have set the line listing the home team Heat as a -8 point favorite, while posting the over/under total at 205 points. The Warriors enter play tonight on a four-game winning streak and now own an impressive 14-7 straight up record on the season. They have also been pretty good against the spread with a 13-6-2 record, including 7-3-2 on the road. The Warriors score 99.7 points a night, which is 11th best in the NBA. Meanwhile, after winning their last two contests, the Heat now stand at 14-5 on the season, which is good enough for first place in the Southeast Division. However, Miami has been below average against the spread, having produced just a 9-10 ATS record overall and 6-5 in 11 home games this season. Betting Trends The Warriors have covered five straight games played on a Wednesday and eight of their last ten on the road when facing a team with a winning record at home. Ten of their last thirteen games have gone over the posted total against Eastern Conference opponents. The Heat are 20-9 ATS in their last 29 games played at home, but are only 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games played on a Wednesday. They have gone over the posted total in 8 of their last 11 games played against Western Conference opponents. Prediction Don’t let the 205 points scare you, as I expect this one to be a very high scoring after once the final buzzer sounds to end this game.
