For today’s NBA betting tips, we have an Eastern Conference heavy-weight clash as Brooklyn Nets travel to Miami Heat. Miami are at the top of the conference table, and even though the Nets are at 8th, they are one of the favorites for the NBA title.
The return of Kevin Durant, along with an in-form Kyrie Irving, has turned the Nets’ season around. They are currently at 8th in the East with a 38-35 record. However, they have lost only twice in the last 8 games, with the losses coming only against Dallas and Memphis.
Coming into this tie, Miami sits atop the East with a 47-27 record. However, if they continue their recent performances, Miami will have a hard time holding on to a top 3 spot. They have won only 3 of their last 8 games and are on a 3-match losing streak.
Miami leads 3-0 in H2H games this season, including a 113-107 win earlier this month. Both teams averaged 105 points each in the last 10 H2H games with a game point average of 211.
Despite their mid-season struggles, Durant’s return and player trades have the Nets playing like championship contenders again. They have defeated the 76ers, Utah Jazz, and the Hornets this month, with both Durant and Irving in good form. In addition, Miami Heat have been struggling of late and are also on a 3-match losing streak. They have lost 4 of their last 6 games, including losses to the Timberwolves and Knicks. Hence, our NBA betting tip for the match is Brooklyn Nets -1.5 Spread @ -110 or the Moneyline on the Nets @ -135. Also, if you’re looking for more value in your bets, player props on Durant or Irving will be excellent markets to keep an eye on.
