Miami looks to continue their hot streak when they travel to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks. Check out the NBA odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Heat (49-14) are in absolutely incredible form. They have become just the fourth team in NBA history to win 20 games in a row, and they can look to expand that on Friday. The Heat have struggled on the road relative to what they have done this season with a 19-11 record. Both Dwayne Wade and LeBron James are averaging 22 or more this season, proving the dynamic duo that cannot be matched this season. Through this win streak, the Heat have opened up their lead in the East to a massive nine and a half games. The Heat have all but locked up their top seed for the playoffs and look to defend their title.
Milwaukee (32-31) is trying to hold on to the 8-seed in the East. This matchup could be a preview of the first round game in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis who both average over 18 points per game lead Milwaukee. They have lost their last two, however, and look to get back on track with the hottest team in the NBA.
Miami keeps an above .500 record when it comes to the spread as they are 33-30. On the road they have been 16-14 ATS and 24-24 coming off a win. Milwaukee is 30-33 ATS and 11-20 at home. After a loss, the Bucks are 15-15 ATS.
I think the train keeps rolling. Miami suffered a scare in Philly but I believe that will wake them up as they prolong the end of the streak so lay the points at online sports books.
