The Atlanta Hawks travel to Miami to take on the streaking Heat in a battle between two potential Eastern Conference playoff teams. Check out the NBA odds at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Miami Heat (47-14), own the best record in the East and are on an NBA-best 18 game win streak heading into their home bout with the Hawks. Of the 18 straight victories, 11 have come at Miami’s American Airlines Arena. Heat star, LeBron James is having a season to remember while leading the team in points (26.7), rebounds (8.1) and assists (7.1) per game. This season, Miami is 3-0 against the Hawks with a margin of victory of just over nine points.
Atlanta (34-28) sits in seventh in the Eastern Conference but safely in the playoff picture, as they are 10 games ahead of ninth place Toronto. The Hawks come into Miami in a tough stretch, going just 5-5 in their last 10, and have dropped their last two. Atlanta is 15-17 on the road and has lost their last four away from home. Al Horford leads the Hawks in points (17.4) and rebounds (10.1) per game, after only playing in 11 games last season due to injury.
Against the spread, the Heat sit above .500 at 32-29 on the year. Miami is 23-23 ATS coming off a victory and 16-16 as the home team. The Atlanta Hawks are 28-32-2 ATS thus far this season and 17-15 ATS on the road. The Hawks have been able to bounce back after losses, however, boasting a 14-12-1 record ATS.
I believe the streak will continue in Miami; LeBron and company are just too tough to stop, especially on their home floor where they are 29-3. Atlanta is virtually safe in a playoff spot and are struggling heading into an atmosphere where they have not played well in past games and to take them Click Here.
