Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets

This Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets betting preview is courtesy of Sportsbook.com, where the line was Miami -1 with a total of 203.5.

The Heat could be without LeBron James when they travel to Denver on Thursday. James sprained his left ankle in Wednesday’s 111-105 loss to the Clippers and is listed as day-to-day.

Despite Wednesday’s defeat in L.A., the Heat are still 21-2 SU (14-8-1 ATS) in their past 23 games. Miami also ended its 13-game road win streak with the loss to the Clips, but is still 15-6 SU (13-8 ATS) on the road for the season. But Miami has not won in its past eight trips to Denver with its last victory coming on Jan. 29, 2002. The big three of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have all played well away from home this year, combining for 71.7 PPG on 50% FG shooting, 23.3 RPG and 13.5 APG. Bosh had 26 points and 13 rebounds in Wednesday’s loss and is averaging 19.8 PPG and 11.3 RPG in his past four games.

Carmelo Anthony has been the subject of trade rumors recently, but he remains in Denver, at least for the time being. Anthony has really enjoyed hosting the Heat, as he has averaged 27.7 PPG on 53.8% FG in six home games against Miami in his career. After scoring just eight points (3-11 FG) in a 96-87 home loss to New Orleans Sunday, Anthony bounced back with 28 points and 10 rebounds in a 132-98 blowout win over Phoenix on Tuesday. Arron Afflalo scored a career-best 31 points and pulled down nine rebounds as Denver connected on a season-high 55.7% FG versus the Suns. Although the Nuggets are 16-4 SU and averaging 109.1 PPG at home this year, they are only 7-11 ATS.
