2 units on Miami -11 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
The Heat are ridding an eight game win streak over which they are 7-1 ATS while pounding opponents by an average 14.9 points/game (103.8 - 88.9) during the span. Miami's offense is unlikely to show sign's of weakness against lowly Bucks (25-36, 29-30-2 ATS) who's 'D' has fallen on hard times allowing foes 108 points/game it's last three. Look for Heat to crush and cover the expected double digits. The Heat are 6-1 against-the-number last seven in front of the home crowd, 10-3 ATS hosting a conference opponent and a solid 4-1-1 ATS with two day's shut-eye. Home favorites of 5+ wins, a good team (60% to 75%) playing a marginal losing team (40% to 49%) are 34-9 (79%) since 1996. Two stars on Miami to run away with it.
