One of the best teams in the league squares off with the worst as the Heat welcome the Bobcats to town on Friday night. All NBA odds and trends info can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
Head to head the Bobcats are 9-4-1 in the last 14 games ATS and are 5-1-1 in the last 7 games ATS in Miami. The Heat are a strong 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. teams with a .400 win percentage or less. They are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record in their last five, however they are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bobcats on the other hand are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall.
We would have not been surprised no matter how high this line was to be honest. The Bobcats have lost by an average of 24 points a game to the like of Atlanta, Washington, and Detroit. Charlotte is the worst team in the NBA and one of the worst of all-time and they actually have a chance to have the lowest win percentage for a season in NBA history. The Heat are coming off of a tough overtime loss to the Bulls and will likely be hungry to put that game behind them. This is not good news for the Bobcats who are likely to get pummeled tonight as a result.
The Heat covered a 14 point spread earlier this season vs. the Bobcats and we see them blowing out the Bobcats in similar fashion tonight with a bet at the sports books.
