Miami Heat at Minnesota Timberwolves  

8 p.m. ET

Line: Timberwolves -8.5; Total: 220 points 

I am betting on the Miami Heat plus the points at BetMGM.
The Miami Heat took three out of four games in their recent four-game homestand but have fallen upon 
tough times losing three consecutive games of the current four-game road trip. 

They will look to salvage a win, but it won't be easy against the Minnesota Timberwolves as nine-point underdogs. The Timberwolves have a lot of momentum right now coming off a four-game road trip in which they won the last three games in convincing fashion over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, and the Philadelphia 76ers.

Situational Trends and Angles 

  • The Heat are 22-8 against the spread (ATS) following a game that had a combined score of 205 or fewer points in games played over the last two seasons.
  • The Heat are 14-3 ATS after playing three consecutive road games in games played over the last two seasons.
  • The Timberwolves are 23-55 ATS coming off a road win of three or fewer points.
