NBA Odds: Heat a Good Bet vs Knicks

Wade Anthony Heat Knicks

Tonight at Madison Square Garden in New York the Miami Heat will attempt to continue their dominant run over the New York Knicks. In their past ten contests Miami has gone 8-2 SU and ATS vs New York while averaging close to ten more points in those games.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Miami's last 13 games.
  • Miami is 2-7 ATS in their last nine games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of New York's last 13 games.

Miami’s most recent decapitation of the Knicks happened in South Beach on Monday as they easily covered the -5 spread, winning the game by a score of 95-78. It was a well-rounded effort by the Heat that saw five players score in double digits, but the difference in the game was a pathetic effort by the Knicks in the second quarter that saw them score just 11 points.

Analyzing the total for tonight’s game which opened at 187.5, it’s worth noting that both teams have seen the majority of their games go UNDER. Miami’s road O/U record combined with New York’s home O/U record works out to 1-9-1. Tonight’s total is on the low side but the teams combined for just 173 points on Monday.

Despite Miami’s recent dominance over the Knicks, they’re just 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall while New York has gone 7-2 ATS in their last nine games.
