Miami at Milwaukee Game Preview
Miami (22-30) will put its impressive 11-game winning streak (both straight-up and against the spread) on the line this Wednesday night in the second stop of this current four-game road trip. The Heat kept things rolling on Monday night with a tight 115-113 victory on the road against Minnesota as slight one-point underdogs on VietBet’s closing line. The total went OVER the closing 204.5-point line and it has gone OVER in four of their last five games.
Goran Dragic has led Miami in scoring this season with 20.1 points per game and he is also the team’s leader in assists with 6.5 a game. He stepped things up against the Timberwolves with a 33 points while hitting seven of his nine attempts from three-point range. Miami shot 52.3 percent from the field in that game while going 15-for-28 from beyond the arc. It has now exceeded its 100.7 PPG scoring average in eight of its last nine games.
The Bucks have been headed in the opposite direction since mid-January with just two victories in their last 12 games (both SU and ATS). They were able to snap a five-game skid this past Saturday with a 137-112 romp over Phoenix as slight 1.5-point road favorites with VietBet. The total has now gone OVER in six of their last eight games. Milwaukee is 22-28 SU on the year with a 20-30 record ATS. It is 8-13 ATS this season when closing as a favorite.
Milwaukee’s top scorer Giannis Antetokounmpo (23.2 PPG) led all scorers on Saturday night with 30 points while going 12-for-20 from the field and Mirza Teletovic added 19 points off the bench. Bucks’ fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of Khris Middleton and it looks like he will see his first action of the season this Wednesday night. Milwaukee is 15th in the league in scoring with an average of 105.3 points a game.

You have got to ride the hot hand in this one given what each team has done on the court lately, but I still see the OVER on VietBet’s 209-point total line as the “best bet” pick for Wednesday night.
