Betting on the Golden State Warriors (odds)
Regular Season Record: 23-24
Stephen Curry and the Warriors finally snapped their four-game losing skid by taking down the Chicago Bulls at home on Monday. Curry scored 32 points in his first game back after missing five contests because of a tailbone injury. Andrew Wiggins also had a nice going for him, as he ended up with 21 points, while Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 18 points with 11 rebounds. Those three players came up big for the Warriors when Golden State defeated the Heat in February at home, 120-112. Curry scored 25 points, while Wiggins and Oubre Jr. had 23 points apiece. The Warriors will also have James Wiseman this time. Wiseman missed the first meeting with Miami due to a left wrist injury. Wiseman played well against Chicago, scoring 12 points to go with five rebounds and four blocks.
The under is 3-1 in the Warriors’ last four road games.
Betting on the Miami Heat (odds)
Regular Season Record: 22-24
Like the Warriors, the Heat put an end to their losing streak that stretched to six games by beating the New York Knicks on the road last Monday, 98-88. The Heat will play the Indiana Pacers first this Wednesday before traveling back to South Beach to meet the Warriors. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo carried the Heat to a win against the Knicks, as the two combined for 47 points, with the latter pulling down 18 rebounds. Although Wiseman has played well in the Warriors’ last game, he’s still got a long way to go before Golden State can honestly say it is confident in the rookie handling Adebayo, who’s an All-Star a season ago. Adebayo had 19 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks in the last meeting with Golden State.
The Heat are 4-1 against the spread in its last five home games against the Warriors.
The Heat wins, 117-114.
