The Miami Heat were still just 8-13 overall with the NBA odds despite a straight up record of 13-8 as their huge appeal with the general betting public along with sloppy play early in the season made them a really bad overlay.
The Heat have started to improve in December and that has helped take the pressure off embattled young head coach Erik Spoelstra, who was considered near the firing line as the “Three Kings of Miami” did not seem to be responding to his leadership.
A recent players only team meeting helped clear the air and get the team focused on the job at hand. LeBron James led Miami with 24 points per game as well as a team best 7.3 assists per game while Dwyane Wade was averaging 21.6 points per game.
Sacramento was at the bottom of the Pacific Division as expected with just 4 wins and 5 payouts with the NBA sports betting lines in their first 18 games as they ranked near the bottom of the NBA for offense.
