The Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat meet Saturday in NBA action at the FTX Arena. The Philadelphia 76ers look for a win after winning seven of their last eight games. The Miami Heat look for a win after winning 10 of their last 12 games.
The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 108.5 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 106 points on 45 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 29.8 points and 4.4 assists, while James Harden is averaging 27.3 points and 12.3 assists. Tobias Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Tyrese Maxey is dishing 4.5 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 81.7 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.3 rebounds per game.
The Miami Heat are averaging 109.7 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 105 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 21.4 points and 5.7 assists, while Tyler Herro is averaging 20.6 points and 4.8 rebounds. Bam Adebayo is the third double-digit scorer and Kyle Lowry is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Miami Heat are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 80.7 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.4 rebounds per game.
The 76ers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Heat are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 5-0 in 76ers last 5 overall. The over is 6-2 in Heat last 8 home games. The 76ers are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Miami and 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers have seen the over take place in each of their last five games, and you should expect shaky defense with them on the end of a back to back. The Miami Heat are rested and at home, where 47.2 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from three. The over has taken place in six of the Heats last eight home games. This should be a high scoring contest. I'll take the over on the reasonable total.
