The Miami Heat are favored (-7) in this one, and cannot bet against them right now. They won their last two matchups by more than ten points, and think the same thing is going to happen here despite Dwyane Wade sitting for maintenance issues. The Heat will definitely win the game, but I love Victor Oladipo’s defensive energy so it may end up coming quite close to the line. See the Heat winning this one by at least eight though if not a lot more.
LeBron James is the best player in the world so even though the Orlando Magic have some nice young players, expect the King to have his way with them despite being on the road. He has encountered so many hostile crowds that he will most likely not even notice the Orlando crowd, especially if there are not a lot of people in the building. Wade sitting is a little bit of a concern, but still think it will shake out in the Heat’s favor in the end.
Here is the TV schedule information for that one.

The game tips off at 7 PM EST, and there are still tickets available if you are based in Orlando and looking to get crazy wild and watch some b-ball. Watching James live is one of the great basketball thrills in the world, so if you have some loose change definitely recommend it. Stay tuned for a piece on the Knicks game later this morning and thanks for reading y’all.
