Miami handles their business at home against Portland.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat -1.5
The Heat will have most of their team back from injuries, and that means they’ll have way more depth than the Trailblazers.
Lillard and McCollum can only do so much while the Heat can just throw waves and waves of rotations at them.
When your in Miami, it is essential to see the night-life, which may be the case with the visiting Trailblazers, so I will take my chances with the home team.
