Warriors are Covering With Ease in Miami

Draymond Green Hassan Whiteside

The high-flying Golden State Warriors are off to the best 55-game start in NBA history (50-5 SU) and will face a defense oriented bunch on Wednesday when they take their talents to South Beach to tangle with the Heat. Historically, the Dubs have enjoyed the Florida sun, as they’ve gone 7-0 ATS in their last seven at American Airlines Arena.

Shark Bites
  • The Heat are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Warriors' last five games with one day off between games.
  • The Heat are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 8.5 or more.

Just how different are these squads? The Dubs average the most fast-break points in the Association, but no team has given up fewer points on the break per game than the Heat. Stephen Curry and company top the league in three-point accuracy, with the Heat boasting the sixth-best defense against the trey ball.

Unsurprisingly, the Warriors are the best OVER team in the NBA (31-24 O/U) and the Heat own the most UNDERs so far in the 2015-16 campaign at 20-35 O/U. Sportsbooks opened the total for tonight’s matchup at 215.

Steve Kerr’s crew have hit a major skid at the betting window as of late. In their prior five affairs, the Warriors are just 1-4 ATS. Oddsmakers have tabbed them as 8.5-point faves for the tilt. This is just the second time since 2008 the Heat have been home underdogs of eight points or more.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Those looking to pick the visitors as their prediction to cover in this one found the Golden State Warriors listed as -7.5-point favorites earlier at BetOnline. Meanwhile, the OVER/UNDER total betting line for this game was set at 216 at Bovada but may have moved since the betting odds opened.
