Point Spread: 3.50 | -110.00 Miami (Away)
Result: Win
NBA - The Heat have seen Jimmy Butler catch fire with 3 straight triple-doubles. Speaking of star power, Anthony Davis is dealing with an Achilles injury and the Lakers miss him. They got blasted by the Nets in LA on Thursday. Overall, the Lakers have been in an ATS slide and that defeat dropped them to 4-9 ATS last 13 games. Miami is getting their first shot at revenge here since losing in the NBA finals to the Lakers in October. Per the simulation report, the Heat will make the most of it. Dennis Schroder also missed LA's loss to Brooklyn Thursday due to Covid-19 protocol and that is why this game is priced the way it is. The Lakers are a short home favorite but don't let that fool you as they fall to 4-10 ATS their last 14 games and, per the simulation report, solid shot at an outright upset for the Heat which would improve their record to 6-3 SU last 9 games as they had been playing better prior to a tough start on this western road swing which was rectified by the big win at Sacramento Thursday. They now bring momentum from that game right into this huge game. Play MIAMI
