NBA Betting Predictions: Miami Heat at Oklahoma Thunder
Tonight two of the best teams currently in the NBA will play as the Miami Heat travel to take on the Oklahoma Thunder. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Thunder as -2 point favorites over the Heat who have recently started playing better on the road.
The Oklahoma Thunder put consecutive wins together on Friday night when they bested the Timberwolves in a huge 149-140 scoring exchange. Oklahoma shot 53.1% from the floor, 10 out of 27 from behind the arc, and nailed 19 out of 20 of there free-throws. They turned the rock over less as they had 13 turnovers to the T-wolves 13 and out rebounded them as well 50 to 43.
Russell Westbrook had quite the game with 45 points on 17 for 28 shooting, nailed 2 of his 4 shots from downtown and made 6 assists. Kevin Durant also put on a scoring clinic with 40 points on 15 of 26 shooting from the paint, three of six from afar, a game high 17 rebounds, and 5 dishes as well. Even the bench got in on the major scoring as James Harden had 25 points coming off the pine.
The Miami Heat picked up an 88-73 win on the road in their last outing on Friday against the Detroit Pistons. Shooting 44.2% percent from the line wasn’t bad however only hitting 2 out of 16 three-point shots left something to be desired from Miami. They also allowed 17 turnovers but caught a break when they created more from the Pistons who had 23. Hitting 18 out of 19 free-throws certainly helped their cause especially when the Pistons shot a lousy 52.9 percent from the line.
Leading the Heat in scoring was Dwayne Wade with 24 points on 10 out of 19 from the floor to go with, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. Lebron James put up 17 points to go with 6 boards, and 10 dimes. Chris Bosh went 4-10 from the field but nailed 7 out of 7 of his attempts from the foul line, grabbed 9 rebounds, 2 dishes, and blocked a shot.
Betting Prediction: The Oklahoma Thunder have lost two out of three of the Miami Heats visits this season, however have won three of the past four meetings. I look for the Oklahoma Thunder to come out on top tonight evening the series at their home at two apeice against the traveling Miami Heat.
