8* Take the Miami Heat (#717)

As I write this, the Nuggets are still favored in their first game back from hiatus, against the Miami Heat.  I think this quote from Denver head coach Mike Malone is a meaningful one; talking about his frustrations with getting his players into the bubble and keeping them there for the past few weeks.  Malone said scrimmages have marked the only time his team was able to go 5-on-5 due to the lack of players available for practices.  "Right now, to be honest, I'm not concerned about our seeding. No. 1 concern is health. That continues to be a huge concern for me, a huge point of emphasis. Can we find a way to get healthy come Aug. 17 [when the postseason begins]?  I have no idea who will be available on Saturday at 1 o'clock against Miami. … Because it seems like every day there is a change in the availability of certain players.”  This team shouldn’t be laying points in their restart game, plain and simple.  Take Miami

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
