Miami Heat at Washington Wizards Overview

Miami Heat

Miami enters off a loss sustained last night when they were defeated as a low-price favorite outright on the road at the Orlando Magic. In the Sunshine State rivalry, the Magic defeated the Heat by a score of 104-101. Dating back to last season when they were trampled by the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of playoff action, Miami has failed to cover or win their last four outings.

Washington Wizards

We have yet to see the Washington Wizards take the court in 2018 but as always there is optimism surrounding this outfit because of some of the talent their bolster in their rolls. This of course is a reference to the dynamic duo of guards John Wall and Bradley Beal. We last saw the Wizards fall in the first round of playoff action like their counterparts in this affair. The Wizards qualified as an eight seed for the 2018 NBA Playoffs and went six games against the East’s top seed Toronto before they were ousted.

Reasons To Back Miami

It is way too early in the season to begin targeting team that play back-to-backs. However, this looks to be the situation here and the propensity to fade Miami by the public is that much greater because of what transpired last night. This is where we step in, as we are in position here to take back a much better number as a result.

Reasons To Avoid Washington

It is a dubious proposition to lay points with a basketball team that has yet to take the court. Unless of course we are talking about the defending champion Golden State Warriors. The Wizards rank nowhere near them as they are generally a middling Eastern Conference team. Miami has not exactly been easy sledding for them either, yet we continue to see the line rise indicating a potential overlay in the works.

Miami Heat at Washington Wizards Prediction 10/18/2018

Last night, the Heat at one point held a 14-point lead. Unfortunately, Miami cooled off after getting off to a scorching start in the first quarter. This is very much a typical trend in the early stages of the regular season. However, Miami still managed to hit nearly 40% of their shots be that as it may and that was after they fanned down. The Wizards may still have a bit of rust to blow off and thus the lumber is too risky. This one will likely be a back and forth contest.
