The No. 1 playoff team of the NBA Western Conference is tackling its long winning streak after the Golden State Warriors hosted the Miami Heat Sunday. The Warriors (39-15) have lost only twice since Jan. 3 and are 9-1 in their last 10 games. The Heat (25-28) play their third game in six games, including five against the West. The departure of Oracle Arena is at 20:30. AND. The Warriors are the 14-point favorites in the latest Heat rating against Warriors after the line has risen to 14.5, while the action on the underside has dropped the total to 220.5 Against 222. You will want to see what the projection of SportsLine Model says about the game before making your own choice of Heat vs. Warriors.
This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, crushes his NBA picks this season. He started Week 17 of the 2018-19 NBA season with a record of £ 200-146 from all top scoring selections, earning more than $ 4,000 to those who would follow. And he was particularly blown away by his NBA A selections against the spread, entering the 17th week on a 35-19 series. Someone following him is up.
The model has now called Heat vs. Warriors. We can tell you that the trend is downward, but it has also generated a choice against spread that accounts for more than 60% of simulations. It is available exclusively at SportsLine.
The model knows that the Warriors are 14-2 at the beginning of the year, their only task being a one-point loss to the Rockets and a nine-point loss to the 76ers. The two-time defending champions of the NBA are at or near the top of many statistical categories, including the first for the score (119.1 points per game), the first for the percentage of goals scored (49.2 %), the second as a percentage of points (38.7) and the third. in percentage of free throws (81.6). The Warriors are seventh bouncing at 46.7 per game.
The Warriors have three players with an average of at least 22 points per game, including Stephen Curry (28.7), Kevin Durant (27.3) and Klay Thompson (22). Among the favorable trends, the Warriors are at 4-2 against the gap when the line is between -16 and -13 as is the case on Sunday.
But the fact that Golden State has burned the nets lately does not guarantee that it will cover the spread of Warriors Vs. Heat.
That's because the Heat have the NBA's third best defense (105.5 points per game) and the fact that Golden State has only 6-4 in its last 10 home games. Miami is led by Josh Richardson (17.4) and Dwyane Wade (14). Wade has equaled or surpassed his season average in six of the last 10 games, including a 22-point performance in Portland on Monday as the Heat began its six-game road trip.
Trends also favored heat. Miami is 16-10 on the road against the gap and 16-9 against the number as underdog or pick 'em. The Heat are also 11-7 against away against teams like the Warriors who win 55% of their matches.
Who wins Heat vs Warriors? And which side of the gap can you count on in more than 60% of the simulations? Now head over to SportsLine to see which side of Heat and Warriors are all from the advanced model that has earned more than $ 4,000 on its NBA picks this season, and find out.
