The Heat are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games as a home favorite, 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 9-2-1 in Wizards last 12 games as an underdog. The over is 4-0-1 in Heat last 5 games as a favorite. The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Miami.

The Washington Wizards are on the end of a back to back and are playing a Heat team that's chewed up teams and spit them out at home this season. At home, the Heat are winning by an average of 18.1 points while shooting 51.4 percent from the field. The Miami Heat should be very comfortable again offensively with that trash Wizards defense on the other side. The Miami Heat are 8-0 ATS this season when favored by at least five points. I'll eat the big number with the home team.
