The Heat are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 Wednesday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The Spurs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 10-3 in Heat last 13 road games. The over is 5-2 in Spurs last 7 home games. The Heat are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings in San Antonio and 4-11 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
The Miami Heat are the better team here and are probably the direction I would lean, but they have a lot of injury issues, which includes Butler, Bam and others being labeled questionable. If those guys are good to go, give me the Heat. If not, you have to lean Spurs. Besides, the San Antonio Spurs are playing some of their best ball of the season right now, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 11.6 points while allowing 41.7 percent shooting from the field. Still, check the injury reports before betting this game.
