Miami Heat have a 26-32 record (30-28 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the East. They have lost five of their last six matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Pistons with a 96-119 score, not beating the odds.

Phoenix Suns have a 11-50 record (25-36 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the West. They have lost 18 of their last 19 matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Hawks with a 112-120 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Devin Booker with 24.7 ppg, adding 4 boards and a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by TJ Warren with 18 ppg and 4 boards per game he is out with an injury.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Heat won on the road with a 98-115 score. Heat have a 11-17 home record, while the Suns are 4-28 on the road. Suns are better offensively, scoring 105.9 ppg to Heat’s 104.8, while Heat are better defensively, allowing 105.9 ppg to Suns’ 116.1. Suns have a better field goal percentage (45.6% to 44.6%), while Heat have a better 3-point percentage (34.9% to 32.7%). Both teams are almost equal in dimes made (23.9 to 23.7), while Heat are better both in boards grabbed (46.3 to 40.1) and in turnovers committed (14.6 to 15.4). Heat are the favorite in this one and Vegas odds give them a -8 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
