Online basketball betting fans have two of the best players in the game on each side of this intra-state basketball betting rivalry. While the Miami Heat have had a winning straight up record that has not translated into much online basketball betting value.
While the Heat were 16-12 straight up they were just 11-15-2 against the NBA betting odds. As an away online basketball betting team Miami got the cash in just 5 out of 13 games. Miami’s biggest online basketball betting problem may be that they are totally dependent on Dwyane Wade for their success.
Wade has come through with an average of nearly 29 points per game scoring but it is also evident that the Heat has no online basketball betting depth, as was proven last year when Wade was out with an injury. Any team that depends so much on one man can often fall into basketball betting trouble.
Miami was a respectable online basketball betting dog with a mark of 8-5-1 against the spread. In fact the dog was a great basketball betting value in all Miami games as the puppy paid off at an 18-9-1 clip. Dwight Howard is Orlando’s online basketball betting answer to Wade.
Howard has been the key reason for Orlando’s success against the NBA betting odds as he was averaging 20 points per game and an astounding 14 rebounds per game to lead the team. Orlando was one of the most profitable teams in online basketball betting with a mark of 19-9-1 against the spread, including 10-6 at home.
As an online basketball betting favorite the Magic were 13-8-1 against the spread. Orlando was one of the hottest teams in online basketball betting for the month of December and was clicking at an over 80% pace against the board, which causes concern that their value is about due to be corrected.
