Miami will travel to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers who have had a tough season after their trade for Bynum that has resulting in 0 minutes played for the All-Star center.

Most people know what Miami (48-14) is currently doing with this remarkable 19 game stretch of W’s. Miami, however, is playing a back-to-back and their third game in four days. They will travel to Philly to play their first of a five game road stretch that culminates with LeBron’s return to Cleveland. The Heat are 2-0 against Philadelphia this season including a 24-point beat down in the same arena they are set to play in.
The 76ers (24-39) have dropped off dramatically after barely making the playoffs and then defeating top-seed Chicago when Derrick Rose suffered his knee injury. The Sixers have lost five of their last six but are coming off a 9-point victory at home against Brooklyn on Monday. Young talent run this team coached by Doug Collins, who hit his boiling point at times earlier in the season.
Miami holds an overall record of 33-29 ATS and Philly’s ATS record is 29-34. After a win, which has been very ordinary for the Heat lately, they hold a record ATS of 24-23 and Philadelphia is 11-12 in the same scenario. Away from home, where Miami has not been quite as good, they are 16-13 ATS, while the 76ers are 17-17 as the home team.
I believe the streak will hit the magical 20 games in Philadelphia. Yes, the streak will have to be stopped as all good things come to an end at some point, but the Wells Fargo Center won’t be the place where it does. The Heat are scorching and the Sixers, well, the 76ers are not. The Heat have played down to lesser teams so take Philadelphia at www.sportsbookroom.com.
