Tips For Betting On Heat Pacers – Heat Open Season-High Six-Game Road Trip At Indiana Tuesday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/6/2013 6:39:34 PM

The magic number is six for a Miami Heat team that has already put together six-game win streaks on two occasions this season, climbing to the top of the NBA Eastern Conference standings once again. The Indiana Pacers have yet to win more than four-straight this season, and are hoping that they can stop Miami from taking off with another extended streak when they host them this Tuesday. The Heat will open a season-high six-game road trip at Indiana this Tuesday, looking to distance them from the conference’s other top sports betting contenders.

The Pacers aren’t one of those teams just yet, as they rank fourth behind Miami, the New York Knicks, and the Atlanta Hawks. Indiana gave the Heat a tough test in last year’s second round, and with these teams likely to meet again in the postseason this year, this game will be important both mentally and in terms of overall win percentage.

Online betting fans will remember Lebron James coming alive in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics, or in the NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but it all started in the second round when he torched a Pacers’ team that had held their own early on. James has averaged 26.5 points per game and leads the Heat in points, rebounds, and assists, and with both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh healthy this team could be better than we saw a year ago. Factor in the additions of Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis off the bench as secondary scorers and this Miami team is dangerous.

The Pacers don’t have the firepower to go shot for shot with a team like the Heat, but they could slow them down with the second-ranked defense in the NBA. Indiana has allowed just 90 points per game this season, and a big part of it is not giving teams second chances as they rank fifth in the NBA in average rebounds. David West has scored a team-high 17.2 points per game with George Hill and Roy Hibbert helping out among the team’s key scorers, but the Pacers need to be at their best on defense to slow down a team as lethal as Miami.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

This game is very interesting because there is a lot to it following the Heat’s win over Indiana in last year’s playoffs, a series in which Larry Bird sounded off about his team’s inability to finish strong. Miami hasn’t been very good on the road early on this season, and the Pacers have had this date circled for quite a while as they look to go out and prove they can compete with the best in the NBA.
