Miami Heat Betting Preview

The Heat have found victory in their last four games, with a 117-109 performance against the Atlanta Hawks last night. Despite not having Jimmy Butler (18.4 PPG, 3.4 AST) due to personal reasons, they came out with a 41-22 first quarter to help set the tone for the game.

Their recent win streak has helped keep them in contention for the Southeast Division, as they are currently on top. They are also sixth in the Eastern Conference. They are potentially without Butler for this matchup, so check closer to game time to see if he is available.

They are averaging near 108.0 points per game, which ranks 27th in the league. Their efficiency on offense has a rating of 108.1 and also puts them at 27th. Without Butler, their roster might not be able to produce another quality performance on offense like they did against the Hawks.

On defense, they have allowed nearly 110.0 points a game, ranking 10th in the league. While this is great, they are also 10th for their efficiency on defense, with a rating of 110.8.

San Antonio Spurs Betting Preview

The Spurs have been the opposite of the Heat lately, with four consecutive losses under their belt. Their previous defeat was a 117-110 performance against the Minnesota Timberwolves, with Victor Wembanyama (19.9 PPG, 8.6 REB) adding 29 points.

They are sitting at fourth in the Southwest Division and 13th overall in the West standings. They need to break out of this slump soon in order to continue climbing the rankings.

They are getting 113.0 points per game (16th) and have an offensive rating of 108.6 (25th). This is not the worst offensive averages in the league of course, but they must utilize the ball more carefully.

The Spurs’ defense is allowing 124.9 points a game (29th) and they have an efficiency rating of 120.1 (29th).
