Washington is off to a solid start and just passed the surprising Orlando Magic in the standings. Washington is the best team that division and now that we are seeing more data that is a confident position.
Still winning division games on the road will determine how high they can rise in the conference standings.
Miami has not been bad but they have struggled with consistency. It seems that with this group there is not an obvious approach and two many similar rather than complimentary players.
This is the first of back to back games between these teams. Washington gets a chance to build some distance by winning on the road and then following up with a home victory.
They are 3-2 on the road this season.
The Wizards probably have the best 1,2,3 combination in the East in John Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter. Wall’s shooting is never going to be elite but the trio are all good defenders too.
Kelly Oubre is another rangy wing that enables them to play small ball. He is a good rebounder for his size and shoots it better than you think.
Washington is second in the NBA in scoring this season. That is an interesting stat as I always think of them as more of a defense first team though it it seems they have embraced the space and pace philosophy.
They do still get some production from inside in the form of Marcin Gortat. They just don’t run anything for him.
Miami returns home from a long road trip for this one. They acquitted themselves fairly well though going 3-3. Scoring has been an issue though and in the losses they really struggled to put points on the board. In one of the wins too, the defense has been a strength this season.
Miami appears set at center and point guard but beyond that they kind of have too many interchangeable parts.
I know positionless basketball is the rage now but they might have too many guys who are wings who are committed on defense but don’t really have a ton of offense. They need to do a better job to generate scoring.
This team seems a little Rileyesque from when he was a coach with New York and Miami. They are looking to beat you up a little and hope there is enough scoring to get the win.
I am not surprised it has led to some ugly results especially when it comes to the spread. They have not covered in a home game yet.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
This game is essentially a pick’em but I am not sure I agree with that assessment. The Heat are returning home but is there really an advantage there. I don’t see it.
I love Washington in this spot. Sure the Heat might do a better than average job slowing down their key perimeter players but at plus money I suggest you hit it.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Washington +1.5
I am going straight to the moneyline here. Sure a point or two could help but odds are with a number like this, whatever team wins will cover.
