Heat are in Tough to Stop the Red-Hot Cavs Tonight

It was only a short time ago that the Boston Celtics were the toast of the NBA, but the Cleveland Cavaliers have since reclaimed that title. LeBron James and company will look to push their winning streak to nine games when they host the Miami Heat on Tuesday.

MyBookie opened the Heat as 4.5-point road underdogs with a total of 209.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Heat’s last seven games after a win.
  • The Cavaliers are 2-12-1 ATS in their last 15 games as favorite.
  • The Heat are 17-4 SU in their last 21 games against the Cavaliers.

The Cavs have found their groove in a major way after a sluggish start to the season and are averaging 112 points during the aforementioned winning streak. Cleveland will be playing in the second half of a back-to-back set after hammering Philly 113-93 on the road on Tuesday. For some reason, the wine and gold closed as 2.5-point underdogs in that game. Add that to the list of things that make you go hmmm…

Miami has won three consecutive games behind Eastern Conference Player of the Week Goran Dragic, who averaged 23.7 points and made 11 of 19 three-pointers during the stretch. The point guard has scored at least 20 in the Heat’s last three tilts.

Miami went 3-1 SU against Cleveland last season, but the Cavs’ lone victory came in a 30-point blowout. In the Heat’s last 25 games when tabbed as underdogs, they’re a sizzling 21-3-1 ATS.
