NBA Betting Pick and Prediction: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Miami Heat

November 22, 2023


The Miami Heat will travel to Cleveland, Ohio to face the Cleveland Cavalier at the Rocket Mortgage Field House on Wednesday evening with the game scheduled to start at 7:30 PM ET and will air on Bally Sports Ohio and the SUN Network.

Miami has been one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference this season as they enter this game with a record of 9-5 following a 118-100 win on the road against the Chicago Bulls on Monday. The success early on in the season can be attributed to Bam Adebayo as he enters this game leading the team in scoring, rebounds, and blocks with an average of 22.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 1.08 blocks per game. The Miami Heat also are one of the top defensive teams in the league as they are allowing an average of 7th fewest points per game in the NBA with an average of 108.93 points allowed per game and will be looking to build on their early season momentum when they travel to face the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers enter this game with a record of 8-6 and are on a four-game winning streak following a 122-119 win on the road against the Philadelphia 76ers while covering the 7-point spread as a road underdog by winning the game outright. The Cavaliers enter this game averaging 112 points per game and Donovan Mitchell has been one of the main catalysts for their early season success as he enters this game leading the team in scoring with an average of 29.2 points per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers will look to win their 5th game in a row when they host the Miami Heat on Wednesday evening. 

BookMaker has the Cleveland Cavaliers listed as 2.5-point favorites at home against the Miami Heat on Wednesday evening. Miami has won six of the last ten and two of the last three meetings while going 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Miami Heat are 6-8 ATS overall, 5-4 ATS on the road, and 2-2 ATS as an underdog this season while the Cleveland Cavaliers are 5-8 ATS overall, 2-4 ATS at home, and 2-5 ATS as a favorite on the year.

Miami enters this game with a slightly better record than Cleveland as they enter this game with a record of 9-5 while the Cavaliers are tied with the 7th best record in the Eastern Conference with a record of 8-6. The Heat have been the better team in the series as they have won six of the last ten and two of the last three matchups while going 6-4 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three. The Cavaliers have also struggled to cover the spread at home as they are 2-4 ATS at home which is why I am buying the .5 point and taking the points with the Miami Heat when they travel to face the Cleveland Cavaliers.
