Betting On The Heat
Miami Heat Vs. Dallas Mavericks
- Moneyline: Heat -140, Mavericks +125
- Spread: Heat -2.5
- Totals: O/U 210
Not only has Miami been covering the spread, but they also have the highest point differential in the league with +17.0. In their last three games this has gone up to +18.0 and in their last outing, the Heat beat the Memphis Grizzlies by 26 points.
The Miami Heat don’t just win games, they blow teams out constantly this season and the Dallas Mavericks have already shown the ability to lose big.
In the Mavs two losses on the season, they lost 84-113 against the Atlanta Hawks and 75-106 against the Denver Nuggets.
Surprisingly, legal online sportsbooks have the spread set low despite the Heat’s dominance. Sportsbooks expect this to be a low-scoring game, as evident in the game total as well as the team total points.
Total Points O/U – Dallas Mavericks
- Over 104.5 -110
- Under 104.5 -120
Total Points O/U – Miami Heat
- Over 105.5 -120
- Under 105.5 -110
The Miami Heat are averaging 114 PPG this season and are a top-three offense. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 98.3 PPG. Should both teams score their average in points, both the Heat covering the spread and the Over in total points would hit.
Parlay For Bigger Payout
Pooling both the Heat covering the -2.5 spread and the game hitting over 210 in total points in a single parlay will net a payout of (+257) at NBA sportsbooks.
The totals and spread being set as low as they are, as well as the low total points for the Miami Heat in this outing could lead to a big win. Things tip-off on Tuesday at 7:30 PM ET and can be watched on TNT.
