Two teams sitting within the top-8 of their respective conferences but currently on opposite trajectories are clashing, when the defending champions Golden State Warriors (39-15), who have been red-hot having lost only once in their last fifteen games, are hosting the Miami Heat (25-28), who on the other hand have won once in their last 5 games.

Spread: Golden State Warriors -14

Total: +221

Golden State Warriors have a 39-15 record (24-29-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first place of the West. They have won 14 of their last 15 matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Suns with a 117-107 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 28.7 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.4 dimes per game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27.3 ppg, 6 dimes and a 7.1 boards per game.

Miami Heat have a 25-28 record (27-26 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 8th place of the East. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Kings with a 96-102 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Josh Richardson with 17.3 ppg, adding 3.7 boards and 3.8 dimes per game. He is followed by Goran Dragic with 15.3 ppg, 3.1 boards and a team high 4.9 dimes per game but he is out with an injury.

Warriors won both meetings against the Heat last season (at home by 17 points and on the road by 28). Warriors have a 20-7 home record, while the Heat are 14-12 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 119.1 ppg to Heat’s 105, while Heat are better defensively, allowing 105.5 ppg to Warriors’ 111.3. Warriors have better percentages both in field goals (49.2% to 44.5%) and in 3-pointers (38.7% to 35%). Both teams are almost equal in boards grabbed (46.7 to 46.6), while Warriors are better both in dimes made (29.6 to 23.6) and in turnovers committed (13.7 to 14.6). Warriors are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -14 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
