NBA betting will feature the one-man team known as the Miami Heat against an emerging power in basketball betting, the Orlando Magic. Many NBA betting handicappers prefer to refer to the Heat as the “Wade’s” as Dwyane Wade is the ultimate factor in his teams’ success.
Last year without Wade, the Heat were a basketball betting disaster. This year with Wade, the Heat are in the running for an eastern conference playoff berth.
Lately, however, even Wade has not been able to cover up for Miami’s lack of NBA betting depth as the Heat went cool in a stretch from February 7 through February 12 in which they got the cash in just one out of four games.
Slowly, Miami’s post season basketball betting prospects have been eroding, though they still are in position for a spot, but they must get Wade some support or it’s likely that he won’t be able to carry the Heat all the way to the Promised Land.
Miami had an overall NBA betting mark of 28-24 straight up while going just 24-26-2 against the NBA betting odds. As a NBA betting dog the Heat were 16-14-1 against the spread. The Orlando Magic had an overall NBA betting record of 38-13 straight up while going 33-17-1 against the NBA betting odds.
The Magic were 23-16-1 as a NBA betting favorite. While chasing down Boston for the top spot and home court advantage in the NBA betting post season was a long shot, the Magic were in solid position for one of the top three seeds in the eastern conference.
All star Dwight Howard has been one of the biggest assets in NBA betting as he was averaging 20.5 points per game and a devastating 14.1 rebounds per game to lead the team. These two teams last met on January 24 in Miami as the Heat scored a 103-97 upset win as 7.5-point dogs with the game going over the total of 193.5.
