The Heat are 14-6-1 ATS in their last 21 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Heat last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 8-1 in Trail Blazers last 9 overall. The Heat are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Miami Heat have offensive issues through 4 games, and I'm not sure things are going to improve overnight with a roster that doesn't have anywhere to go in terms of adjustments. The Portland Trail Blazers have also been solid defensively during this stretch, and they've seen the under hit in 8 of their last 9 games. The Heat likely will continue to grind games down and play like we're still in the 90s. I'll take the under.
