NBA Wagering Action Thursday Game Picks
Miami Heat (9-41) @ Chicago Bulls (20-31)
The good news about the Miami Heat’s nine wins this season is that they won’t beat the ’72-’73 Philadelphia 76ers for fewest wins in an NBA season.
Outside of that, good news has been short to come by in Miami.
They have yet to win since acquiring Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks in exchange for Shaquille O’Neal and have only covered the spread in two of their last eight games.
The Chicago Bulls, who defeated the Heat in the first round of the playoffs last year, have endured a similarly disappointing season. They’ve only won twice in their last seven games but the good news is they’ve been supporting bettors at the very least. They have covered the spread in seven of their last nine games.
The Bulls have covered six of the last nine meetings in Chicago but have covered only eight of 24 games at home this season.
They are 0-2 as a three-point home favorite of three points or less and are 1-6 ATS in home games when the totals is between 190 to 194.5.
The Heat are 4-16 ATS against teams with a losing record.
Free Pick: Miami
Dallas Mavericks (35-17) @ Phoenix Suns (36-16)
The Dallas Mavericks were supposed to be the next Western Conference powerhouse to bolster their lineup with a superstar but little used Devean George altered that plan.
The Mavericks had seemingly completed a trade to acquire Jason Kidd until George exercised a no-trade clause.
On Wednesday night, George finished 0-for-11 from the floor but the Mavericks still trumped the Portland Trail Blazers 96-76. They haven’t fared so well after blowouts, though, and are just 2-5 ATS after wins by 10 points or more.
On Thursday night, they head to Phoenix, where they have lost 17 of their last 27 games.
The Suns are only 9-15 ATS in home games, though, and just 2-5 ATS against the Southwest Division. Conversely, the Mavericks are 7-1 straight up against Pacific Division.
The Mavericks thrive against poor defensive teams, posting a record of 18-8 against teams that are allowing 99 points per game.
The Suns will be without O’Neal on Thursday night, who isn’t expected to make his debut until after the All-Star break
