TODAY'S BEST BET | MARCH 3
We’re off to the NBA for today’s best bet as the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks square off in a blockbuster Eastern Conference showdown at the Fiserv Forum.
The Heat are one of the hottest teams in the NBA at the moment and have been on fire since the All-Star break, coming into this encounter on the back of a four-match winning streak.
Miami are top of the East and have won nine of their last 10 games overall, including six straight in conference play.
Jimmy Butler continues to lead from the front and is averaging 21.7 points per game, while Ben Adebayo and Tyler Herro are also having strong seasons.
Herro and Gabe Vincent tied for a team-high 20 points each in their most recent outing, which saw the Heat dispatch the Bulls 112-99. Miami took a 24-point lead into the fourth quarter before they had the luxury of resting their stars.
The Heat are the definition of business-like and they always turn up and do what needs to be done in order to get the best out of themselves.
That spells trouble for the erratic Bucks, who at their best are almost unstoppable, but they have struggled for consistency all season long.
Milwaukee have gone on eight, six and four-match winning streaks at different junctures of the season, but then they also go on periods of poor form that holds them back and sees them sit in fourth spot in the East.
The Bucks are currently in one of those tough stretches, heading into this clash with four defeats from their last six matches, including three at home against the Trail Blazers, Suns and Nets.
Giannis continues to post MVP-like numbers, but even his individual brilliance can’t save the Bucks when they are in stuck in a rut like this.
The Heat are remarkably consistent and nearly always play to the best of their abilities, while their defence can easily frustrate the Bucks here. Miami have won two of the last three meetings and are great value as underdogs to come out on top again here.
- Heat have won their last four games
- Bucks have lost four of their last six games
- Heat have won nine of their last 10 games
- Heat are top of the Eastern Conference
- Bucks are fourth in the Eastern Conference
- Heat have won two of the last three meetings between the teams
