The Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat meet Thursday in NBA action at the Kaseya Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a 76ers vs Heat prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have been in decent shape as they've split their last 10 games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after sneaking past the Thunder in a 109-105 win on Tuesday. Kelly Oubre Jr led the team with 25 points on eight of 16 shooting, Joel Embiid added 24 points with six rebounds and seven assists while Tobias Harris chipped in with 18 points, six rebounds and four assists. As a team, the 76ers shot 46 percent from the field and 14 of 30 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they scored just 19 points in the second quarter to trail by 13 points, but they stayed within striking distance and dominated the fourth quarter by 36-25 to come away with the unlikely victory. The 76ers will play against the Rockets after this game.

Miami Heat

Meanwhile, the Miami Heat have been in great shape as they've won seven of their last 10 games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after beating the Knicks in a 109-99 home win on Tuesday. Terry Rozier drained eight 3-pointers to finish with 34 points, Jimmy Butler added 17 points with six assists while Bam Adebayo chipped in with 15 points and nine rebounds. As a team, the Heat shot just 48 percent from the field and 17 of 38 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 34 points in the first quarter to take an early 16-point lead, before they closed the final 3:48 on a 17-9 run after the Heat chased down their lead.

  • Jimmy Butler ranks 5th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.4) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Heat rank 30th in the league for blocks per game this season (3.4).
  • The Heat rank 29th in the league for H2 points per game this season (53.3).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for steals per game this season (8.3).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.1).

76ers vs Heat prediction

The 76ers are shorthanded with Tyrese Maxey, Mo Bamba, Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris all listed as questionable, while the Heat are still without Josh Richardson and Tyler Herro. The 76ers are coming into this one fresh off an impressive comeback win over the Thunder. With so many players under an injury cloud, I am more comfortable going with the more consistent Heat who represent great value at the short line at home.
