The Heat make their rounds in the state of Texas with a back to back starting in Houston on Tuesday and then here in Dallas on Wednesday.
Miami has won 4 straight games and have jumped into 3rd place in the East.
The Mavericks sit 6th in the West and come in off a loss to Atlanta to start the month off.
The Eastern Conference is probably going to belong to the Cavaliers unless Toronto absolutely catches fire.
However the 2-8 seeds are an absolute crapshoot right now. Miami’s recent 4 game winning streak has jumped them into 3rd place as they now start a journey toward the 2nd seed that sits at a 5.0 game deficit.
Miami capped off January with wins over Chicago, Brooklyn, Milwaukee, and Atlanta.
The Heat will look to do what they did against Dallas back on New Years Day when they routed them in South Beach 106-82. Miami shot 56.1% in the win.
The Mavericks had one of their worst shooting performances of the season against the Heat in that New Years Day loss. They shot an abysmal 36.4% and got out rebound by a difference of 10.
They’ll look to bounce back from another poor performance that started the month of February as they fell 112-97 to Atlanta.
Dallas fell behind by 7 at half and couldn’t get over the hump in the 2nd half as Atlanta and then continued to trade baskets. The good news for Dallas is that they return home for this one, as they play much better inside American Airlines Arena.
The Mavs are 15-8 SU and 16-7 ATS at home this year. Their defense has been much better at home as they allow just 98.5 points per game.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Heat are 7-17 ATS in their last 24 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
- Heat are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 vs. NBA Southwest.
- Heat are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games.
- Mavericks are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
- Mavericks are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games.
Free NBA Prediction:
The Mavericks are a much different team at home.
They haven’t played well on the road, but they seem to step it up defensively when they play in front of the home crowd. Expect that to happen here on Wednesday as they grab a home win over the Heat in a back and forth close game.
