|Under 216.5 (-109) @ 888sport|
This is a 10* CUSTOMER APPRECIATION TOTAL on the UNDER Mavericks/Heat.
With the end of the regular season now less than two weeks away, you have to be careful about team's motivation levels. Some will be ultra motivated, others will simply be looking to avoid any injuries and to play out the rest of their campaign.
Here's two non-conference teams getting together on Tuesday night, but each is looking for a victory. Miami has seen the total go over in six straight, but when it played Dallas back on January 1st, it lost 93-83. New Years hangover?
Maybe, but while we are expecting a few more points scored today, we're still expecting much more of a defensive battle. Note that Miami has seen the total go UNDER in eight of its last 11 after playing to five or more straight OVERS in a row.
Off a 125-124 win over the Wizards, Dallas fell flat the following night in a 111-99 setback to the Kings. With Brooklyn at home up next, Dallas could easily be caught looking ahead here as well.
When you add up all of the above information, everything we see definitely points to more of a defensive affair, than a run and gun "shootout."
The play is the UNDER.
Good luck, NP
