Spurs hope to keep rolling in Miami

The San Antonio Spurs will look to stay undefeated early in the NBA season when they bounce into Miami to challenge the Heat. You would think the Spurs would struggle without their All-NBA forward Kawhi Leonard. But water is wet, the sky is blue and the Spurs are historically successful during the NBA regular season.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in nine of the Spurs’ last 12 games on the road.
  • San Antonio is 5-0 in its last 5 games when playing at Miami.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Miami’s last 5 games.

After dispatching two of the better teams in the league in Toronto and Minnesota, the Spurs take on a Heat team that obviously isn’t as formidable as in their “Big Three” years. The Spurs opened as 3-point favorites at Bovada and are 2-1 ATS. Bettors should seriously consider placing a wager for the Spurs to cover as they’re 8-1 ATS in their last nine games against Miami.

Although the Heat are 2-1 SU to start the season, it’s been against subpar competition. They lost their season opener at Orlando and then took care of business at home against Atlanta and Indiana. The concerning trend for Miami backers is their W-L record against San Antonio. The Heat have struggled against this Western Conference powerhouse, going 0-9 SU in their last nine games.

The OVER may also be a decent bet to throw a wager on. The total opened at 195.5 and while San Antonio is ranked second in team defense this year, they’ve had to modify their team defensive strategy on the perimeter while Leonard recovers from a quadriceps injury. Add in that Heat center Hassan Whiteside will be unavailable for Wednesday’s game and this matchup is shaping up to be an easy OVER for bettors.
