NBA Betting – Heat, Magic In Arms Race For Southeast Division Lead

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/5/2014 2:12:19 AM

First it was the Orlando Magic that were dominating, then the Miami Heat came storming back to take the division lead in the Eastern conference’s Southeast, and now it’s two teams trading win-for-win as the New Year begins. The Heat and Magic have both won seven straight games to join the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls atop the conference standings, and will look to continue their hot streaks when the betting on NFL playoffs begin this weekend.

Miami Heat (-7) @ Milwaukee Bucks

Friday, 8:30 PM ET

The Heat open up a five-game road trip on the tail end of a home-and-home series against the Bucks, and after taking the first of two 101-89, Miami will look to extend their win streak to eight. The big three played their roles to a tee in the home win over Milwaukee, with Dwayne Wade scoring 34, Chris Bosh grabbing 12 rebounds, and Lebron James dishing out nine assists, and there is no reason to think that Miami’s win streak won’t hit double-digits as long as that trio continues to perform as a unit. The Bucks do deserve credit for hanging around with the Heat for the first three quarters of that loss, but in the end the more talented team pulled away for the double-digit win. Miami has now won 19 of their last 20 overall, and that streak will continue Friday night.

Pick: Miami

Houston Rockets @ Orlando Magic (-9.5)

Friday, 8:00 PM ET

The Magic extended their win streak to seven with a convincing NBA online sports betting win over the Bucks, a game in which they held Milwaukee to just 33 points in the first half. Despite a talented offense, defense has played a critical role during the team’s winning streak, as Orlando has allowed an average of just 90 points per game over those contests. The offense hasn’t been bad either, with six different players hitting double figures in each of the last five games, the perfect balance the franchise was looking for when they acquired Hedo Turkoglu, Gilbert Arenas, and Jason Richardson. It’s impossible to forget about All Star center Dwight Howard, who has averaged 24.7 points and 16 rebounds the last three games, and it will be difficult for the Rockets to slow him down.

Pick: Orlando

Washington Wizards (-5) @ Charlotte Bobcats

Saturday, 7:00 PM ET

The Wizards are still looking for their first road win of the season entering their 18th game away from home, and although they may not get it in Charlotte, they should be able to keep this one close. The Bobcats are just 8-9 at the Time Warner Cable Arena, and have had difficulty string together consecutive sports betting bonus wins all season. That should be enough for Washington to take advantage and end their streak of futility away from home this season, or at the very least keep it close.

Pick: Washington
