Miami Heat Betting Preview
The Miami Heat need a win to get back to a .500 record. The Miami Heat have lost 7 of their last 10 road games. The Miami Heat are averaging 101.3 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 109 points on 47.6 percent shooting. Bam Adebayo is averaging 22.7 points and 6 rebounds, while Tyler Herro is averaging 22 points and 4.3 rebounds. Jimmy Butler is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Love is grabbing 9.5 rebounds. The Miami Heat are shooting 38.7 percent from beyond the arc and 76.2 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game.
Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview
The Milwaukee Bucks look to get above a .500 record with a win. The Milwaukee Bucks have split their first two home games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 114 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 122 points on 50.9 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 24.5 points and 11.5 rebounds, while Damian Lillard is averaging 22.5 points and 6 rebounds. Brook Lopez is the third double-digit scorer and Malik Beasley is grabbing 4 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 73.2 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 43.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41 rebounds per game.
The Miami Heat have the rest advantage and what not, but not having wings in Josh Richardson, Caleb Martin and Haywood Highsmith hurts them in spots like this. You need defense when playing a team like the Bucks and the Heat are undermanned on the perimeter. The Milwaukee Bucks are also in a revenge spot after being eliminated by the Heat in last season's playoffs. If the Heat were closer to full strength, I'd grab the points, but they're not. Hard not to side with the Bucks in a comfortable home victory.
