NBA - Knicks @ Miami
(NBA) New York vs. Miami, 04/02/2024 7:30 PM, Score: 99 - 109
Point Spread: -2.50 | -110.00 Miami (Home)
Result: Win
I'm betting Miami -2.5 vs the Knicks at home for these reasons:

- No OG Ananouby or Randle for this game. Mitchell Robinson will return, but they need more defensive firepower to beat the Heat in Miami.

- Too much veteran leadership on Miamis roster, and the coaching advantage also goes to Mike Spolstra, who will be also getting alot of player back from injury today with Rozier, Duncan Robinson, Caleb Martin, and Jovic probable and likely to play.

- Miami have defensively savy gaurds like Rozier and Jimmy Butler who are going to make things as tough as possible on Divencenzo and Jalen Bruson. Knicks having to rely on the side crew to elevate the level of play and beat the Heat, is going to be a tough ask.

- Heat are top 10 against three point shooting teams, and The Knicks being so handicapped on the roster, the deep ball has really saved them, so a low scoring game with the way Miami defends the 3pt shot, only favors the home side even more.

- Miami are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings at home vs the Knicks, 3-1 ATS in that stretch.

Official Play: Miami -2.5

Side Bet: Duncan Robinson over 10.5 Points

Hail Mary: Miami Team Total over 105.5
