Bet here and win

Miami Heat

Although Erik Spoelstra’s wards are among the top teams of the league and spend this season at the proper level, they have been playing on the road lately extremely disgustingly. At home, there is no doubt, they even recently won the most important favorites from Wisconsin Milwaukee Bucks, with a noticeable margin.

Miami seriously set out to catch up with Boston and sweep them from third place. The Heat had four victories in a row, with all the rivals being strong, and win over the Milwaukee was generally something from a fantasy.

This is important to pay attention to the fact that the Pelicans have one of the worst defenses in the League – 117.2 points averaged per game. In a recent match with a weak Minnesota they completely missed 139 points.

New Orleans Pelicans

The hosts of the meeting from New Orleans recently playing at home, did not differ in endurance. Only four victories out of ten games, once again show us why this club is sp close to the outsiders of the conference. And the injured players complicate the already difficult situation for this fight.

In New Orleans, all the talk is in one way or another boils down to whether Zion Williamson will get the prize for the best rookie of the season. Now the striker is impressive, but this does not always affect the results of his team. New Orleans still live outside the top ten in the Western Conference, and getting into the playoffs will be extremely difficult, because the distance from the eighth line is already four victories.

The Pelicans caught a wave of recession. Alvin Gentry’s players began to lose, not only on the road, but also in the home walls. With such a faded game, they should not expect for a win against Miami players, who have gained impressive form.
