Miami Heat vs Dallas Mavericks

Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas Texas

When: Wednesday, February 13, 2019 8:30pm Eastern

We have a National Basketball Association contest as our focus when the Miami Heat visit the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center. The Heat are currently one game behind the Detroit Pistons for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference and the Mavericks are four games behind current eighth seed Sacramento Kings. This should be a fun game and probably the last time Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki play against each other.

The Dwyane Wade Farewell Tour Continues

The Heat began their Western Conference road trip in eighth place in the East, but after losing three consecutive games, Miami is temporarily out of the playoff picture. For the most part, the road trip has been competitive, and Miami lost only one of those three games by ten points or more. The Heat also beat Portland at the Moda Center, and it looks as though the Heat might have some life in them.

Miami isn’t reporting any injuries for their Wednesday game with Dallas.

This is the first meeting this season between the two clubs. Miami has a road record of 14 wins and 14 losses and is on a three-game losing streak.

Josh Richardson leads Miami in scoring, averaging 17.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.5 triples per night. Richardson has exceeded his scoring average in three of his past five games.

Over their last five games, Miami is scoring an average of 101.4 points, 11.4 offensive rebounds, 36 defensive boards and 24 assists per game over their last five games.

The Future Looks Bright in Dallas

Dallas has a record of 26 wins and 30 losses and made some moves at the deadline that were interesting to say the least. Dallas made these moves to lower their salary cap and of course, to build around Rookie of the Year frontrunner Luka Doncic. The Mavs traded away the salaries of Deandre Jordan, Wesley Matthews and Dennis Smith Jr to acquire Kristaps Porzingis from the Knicks. They then traded away Harrison Barnes to the Sacramento Kings for Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph, and they waived Randolph. The Mavs also wound up getting Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr and Courtney Lee in the Knicks deal and sent a message to the rest of the NBA; the Dallas Mavericks are all about their future.

Dallas isn’t listing any significant injuries for their game with Miami on Wednesday.

This is the first meeting between the two sides this season. Dallas has a home record of 20 wins and eight losses and is on a one-game losing streak.

Luka Doncic leads the Mavericks in scoring, averaging 20.8 points, 5.5 assists and 7.1 rebounds per game including 2.4 triples per night. Doncic has exceeded his scoring average in three of the past five games.

Over their last five games, Dallas is scoring an average of 104.6 points, 9.4 offensive rebounds, 33.8 defensive rebounds and 21.8 assists per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

The game is currently a pick em game and I’m picking the Mavericks. They are very strong at home this season and even though the Mavericks were broken up at the deadline, they seem cohesive and have adapted to their new situation. The Heat looked tired against Denver, and playing four road games in six nights isn’t going to help the Heat much. I’m playing the Mavericks to win this game on Wednesday.

Prediction: Dallas

Full-Game Total Pick

These aren’t exactly run and gun offenses and the sides play very slow paced games. This is good for them and good for those of us who will be playing the under. As a team, the Heat have a PER of -4 over their last five games and ain’t much better at -2. When I added everything together, I came away with 202, so I will be playing the under in this game on Wednesday night.

Prediction: Under 206 Points
