NBA Betting: Miami Heat vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

NBA betting Sunday includes the inter-conference matchup of the Heat and Thunder in basketball betting action from Oklahoma City.

NBA betting handicappers will see these two teams as opposites and their respective basketball betting values may surprise casual observers.  The Miami Heat are something of a NBA betting enigma.

Miami had an overall basketball betting record of 19-16 straight up, which had them in contention for the eastern conference playoffs.  The Heat’s NBA betting value, however, has proven to be significantly under that mark as they were just 14-19-2 against the NBA betting odds.

In away NBA betting action Miami was just 7-9-1 against the spread with 9 of those games going under the basketball betting total.  It has not been a happy new year for the Heat as they struggled against the NBA betting spread with just 1 cover in 5 games to start 2009.

Dwyane Wade IS the Miami Heat.  Without Wade this team is nothing as was proven last year when Wade was out with an injury.  Wade is one of the biggest NBA betting assets around as proven by his 29.1 points per game average which led the Heat.  Not at all a ball hog, Wade also led Miami in assists with 7 per game.

Shawn Marion has been solid on the boards with an average of almost 9 per game to lead the team.  The Oklahoma City Thunder provide one of the best NBA betting lessons on value that you could ever hope to find.  Oklahoma City had an overall NBA betting record of just 6-32 straight up.

But the Thunder, believe it or not, were one of the most profitable teams on the board with a mark of 24-14 against the NBA betting odds.  From December 23 through January 10, OKC kicked it into an even higher gear as they were 8-2 against the NBA betting board!

The Thunder were a solid NBA betting under team at home with 13 of their 20 games as a host going under the total.  Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City in scoring with an average of 23.7 points per game.
