Heat Have Dropped Seven Straight on the Road

Wayne Ellington Miami Heat

UPDATE: Dwyane Wade has been ruled out of tonight's game.

The Portland Trail Blazers have rattled off nine straight wins and will look to push that mark to double digits at home against the Miami Heat on Monday. Miami’s road struggles are becoming more and more evident, as the Heat are an ugly 0-7 SU in their previous seven away from home.

Xbet opened the Heat as 6-point road underdogs with a total of 208.5.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in the Heat’s last five games against the Western Conference.
  • The Trail Blazers are 6-0 ATS in their last six games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The Heat are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games on the West Coast.

Portland has jumped to third place in the Western Conference as a result of the streak and has created some separation between itself and the pack. The dynamic backcourt combo of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum continues to take the team to new heights, producing 58 points in Friday’s massive 125-108 win over the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

The Heat are holding down the No. 7 spot in the Eastern Conference and are only 2 ½ games behind the third-place Cleveland Cavaliers. Dwyane Wade is clearly comfortable in his surroundings in South Beach, as the veteran star is averaging 15.7 points in six games this month. The team has gone 7-5 SU since Wade returned to Miami from Cleveland.

The Blazers have claimed the last four meetings in this series, including a 102-95 triumph at Miami on December 13. In that span, Miami is 0-4 ATS.

OddsShark computer prediction handicapping models run on this game pick a 109-107 victory for the Heat. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NBA matchups here.
