Philadelphia 76ers vs. Miami Heat

Where: American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL

When: Monday, November 12, 7:30 PM. ET.

The Miami Heat will be trying to snap a two-game losing streak when they take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.

New Look 76ers Going For Third Win In Four Games

The 76ers made a splash over the weekend when they acquired Jimmy Butler from the Minnesota Timberwolves for Dario Saric and Robert Covington. With another All-Star in the mix, the 76ers solidified their position as one of the top contenders in the Eastern Conference.

With Butler expected to make his debut on Monday, the 76ers will try to bounce back from their road loss to the Memphis Grizzlies and get their third win in four games.

Offensively, the 76ers are averaging 111.9 points per game, which is 10th in the league. They are led by Joel Embiid, who is averaging 27.7 points, 13.1 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per game. JJ Redick is averaging 17.4 points and 3.4 assists per game, while Ben Simmons is averaging 15 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game.

With Butler joining the team, expect their offensive numbers to improve.

The 76ers have struggled defensively this season, giving up 112.9 points per game. Their defensive struggles have been worse on the road this season which is one of the reasons they have only one win away from home. If they can pick things up on the defensive end, they will be difficult to beat.

Heat Trying To Get Back On Track

The Heat had a chance to move into first place in the Southeast Division over the weekend, but they failed to capitalize on the opportunity by losing two consecutive games. They will try to snap their losing streak and get back in the hunt for the division lead when they face the 76ers.

The Heat have been solid defensively, giving up 110.6 points per game, which is 15th in the league. However, they have struggled in their last two games and will need to pick things up on the defensive end if they want to get the win.

Miami has been inconsistent on offense this season, and they are averaging 110.6 points per game, which is 14th in the league. Josh Richardson leads the way with 20.8 points and four rebounds per game. Goran Dragic is averaging 16.1 points and 4.9 assists per game, while Dwyane Wade is averaging 14.3 points and four rebounds per game.

With the 76ers coming into town, the Heat will need to play better on the offensive end if they want to get the win on Monday night.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Heat haven’t played well against the spread, losing four of their last five games against Eastern Conference teams and five of their last seven overall. The 76ers have fared better against the spread, winning four of their last five games after allowing 100 or more points in their previous game and five of their last seven Monday games.

Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers +2.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone over in five of Philadelphia’s last six games against teams with losing records and in 10 of their last 14 road games. The total has also gone over in Miami’s last five games against Eastern Conference teams and in seven of their last eight games.

Prediction: Over 221

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

Redick is averaging 17.4 points per game and he will fail to go over 18.5 points in this game because he has cooled off in his last 10 games and is averaging 15.7 points during that span.

Prediction: J.J. Redick (PHI) Total Points Under 18.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The 76ers will win the first half of this game because they have played better than the Heat in the first half. They are averaging 59.3 points per game in the first half of their last three games while the Heat are averaging 56.7 points per game.

Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers +1

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Heat and 76ers will go over the first half total because they are averaging 116 combined points per game in the first half of their last three games. With Butler joining the 76ers, expect them to score more than they have in the first half of their last three games.

Prediction: Over 112

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The 76ers will go over 56 points in the first half because they are averaging 59.3 points in the first half of their last three games and they are going up against a Heat team that is giving up 55.5 points in the first half.

Prediction: 76ers – Total 1st Half Points over 56
