Knicks-Heat Line

The Knicks-Heat line was coming in at +9.5 with New York the mighty dog at Diamond Sports.

As DonBest.com points out, these two teams are dramatically different from this time last year and seem to keep improving. 

Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony have really taken the Knicks to a whole other level while Lebron James impact on the Miami Heat has been dramatic.

From our friends at Don Best: 

New York was riding a three-game SU winning streak until Friday’s unexpected loss to lowly Cleveland as eight-point road ‘chalk,’ 115-109.  The combined 224 points eclipsed the 221-point closing total, helping the ‘over’ cash the second consecutive contest.  The Knicks have now failed to cover their past two performances.

Miami improved to 4-1 SU its last five games after dispatching Washington Friday as a 15 ½-point home favorite, 121-113.  The combined 234 points soared past the 203 ½-point closing total, helping the ‘over’ improve to 5-3 the past eight outings.  The Heat are now just 1-3 ATS their last four matchups. 

The home team in this series has only won 3 of the last 10, though Miami has won 7 of the last 8, 4 of which covered the current spread.  They lost their last matchup against New York.

The Knicks are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. loss.

The Heat are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Atlantic.

NBA Betting May 7, 2021 – Los Angeles Lakers at Portland Trail Blazers

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers will both be playing after the regular season concludes. We just don’t know if they’ll be in the top-six or in the play-in tournament. LA and Portland are two of three teams vying for the final two playoff spots with the club missing out being relegated to the play-in.

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

If the Dallas Mavericks are relegated to the play-in tournament they can lay the blame on one of the worst teams in the Western Conference. The Mavs enter their contest with the Brooklyn Nets having won seven of their last 10 games with the three defeats all coming at the hands of the Sacramento Kings.

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

The new play-in format has the Toronto Raptors in line to potentially compete for a spot in the postseason. That’s good news for a club that has plodded along for most of the campaign. While there are some who detest the play-in the Raps certainly aren’t one of them. They enter the week 2.5 games out of the 10th spot and continue a difficult stretch of games against Western Conference foes with Tuesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a freefall that even their two best players have been unable to get them out of. We all thought they would return to their early season ways once Anthony Davis and LeBron James returned, but that hasn’t happened.

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now. Despite the loss of Jamal Murray, the Nugs are on a roll having won four straight and eight of their last nine games. Their only loss during that span was to the Dubs and a setback to the same club preceded the current run.
