The Heat are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a home underdog and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games. The over is 8-2 in Heat last 10 overall. The over is 6-1 in Wizards last 7 Sunday games. The Heat are 25-9-2 ATS in the last 36 meetings in Washington and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Miami Heat have been absolutely brutal on the road this season and lost outright as 11-point favorites in their last trip to Washington in December. With that said, the Washington Wizards simply aren't a team I'm putting money on, as this team is just terrible defensively, which includes allowing 51.6 percent shooting from the field and 42 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. Even knowing the Heats issues on the road, I'm still laying the reasonable number and hoping they come through.
