NY Knicks vs Miami Heat by Marlo
They were a 4pt favourites at home and many were expecting them to cover as the line seemed to be set at a reasonable level considering Miami usually perform well when they are involved in big matches.
However, this Heat team continues to surprise this season and it is almost becoming a lottery with them as you really don't know which team is going to show up.
New York is currently 19-27 overall and 11-15 at home. Carmelo Anthony is performing extremely well and he is taking the burden of scoring as much as possible on a team with limited offence.
Last time these two teams met it ended 102-92. Howevever, I feel like Miami whether they win or lose this one will come out with intent at the Garden. Knicks will start with nearly a 6pt headstart, depending on which book you are using and should cover here but I don't have enough confidence in them to follow here.
I will take a chance here on the overs which is set at a shade over 200 pts.
Two offensive minded units who will look to put on a show. Melo and James should get big numbers. Overs is the best play in my opinion. 5-0 in New York's last 5 games and 5-1 in Miami's last 6 games.
