How To Bet On Heat 76ers – Heat Look To Stay Red Hot At Philadelphia Saturday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/21/2013 6:38:50 PM

The defending NBA champion Miami Heat extended their win-streak to a season-high eight-straight in their first game back from the 2013 All-Star break. Now they will look to stay red hot when they visit the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. The Heat have been on fire since before the break, with Lebron James scoring 30 points or more in a franchise-record seven-straight games before putting up 24 in Wednesday’s win over the Atlanta Hawks. Miami still has a long way to go to lock up the top spot in the Eastern Conference, but with the New York Knicks struggling now is the time to make a run.

The 76ers are currently on the outside looking in, and trending the wrong way after suffering their third-straight sports betting loss. With the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks dropping consecutive games the timing would have been perfect for Philadelphia to make a run, but instead they are now faced with turning things around against the hottest team in the NBA right now.

With Lebron setting records, both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh looking good, and a strong supporting cast, the Heat could very well be on their way to a third-straight appearance in the NBA Finals. Miami hasn’t been as good on the road as at home, but Wednesday’ win over the Hawks proved they can hang with anyone as the visiting team. Sparked by Lebron’s record run, the Heat are averaging over 103 points per game this season, and any one of their big three could go off any game. The return of Udonis Haslem also makes this team much tougher, with Chris Anderson also earning more time in the rotation since signing as a free agent.

The 76ers’ don’t have an easy road the rest of the way, including four games remaining against the defending NBA champions. Philadelphia has struggled with injuries and inconsistencies all season, and it certainly doesn’t help not to have Andrew Bynum in all year. The 76ers rank near the bottom of the NBA in average points even with Jrue Holiday averaging 19 points per game, as he just doesn’t have the supporting cast needed to compete with the big boys. Philadelphia has worked hard to earn a top-10 ranking at the defensive end of the floor, but that hasn’t been enough on most nights.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While the 76ers are the more desperate team of the two, no team is playing better right now than Miami, and there is no indication they will slow down soon. The Heat are scoring at will right now and making it look easy, so with first place on their mind during a season-high online betting win streak, don’t expect them to slow down at Philadelphia.
