The Miami Heat gets the spotlight again on Wednesday night as they face the Orlando Magic in a basketball betting game that can be seen on ESPN. The way the Heat has played so far this season they may not want the attention. The Heat are just 8-6 this season and they are coming off a bad loss on Monday night at home against Indiana. It won’t be easy on Wednesday as they face an Orlando team looking for revenge for a loss last month in Miami.

Magic are listed as 4.5 point favorite at SBG with a total of 187.

The Heat played possibly their worst game of the season on Monday as Dywane Wade had the worst shooting game of his NBA betting  career. He finished with just three points on 1-for-13 shooting.  LeBron James had 25 points while Chris Bosh had 21 points but the Heat looked out of sorts all night.  They also got news that forward Udonis Haslem will need foot surgery and be out indefinitely.  It may not be long before general manager Pat Riley has to take over as head coach in Miami. The big three of James, Wade and Bosh have rarely played well together and the bench for the Heat has been a disaster. The Miami bench was outscored 40-4 by Indiana on Monday.

 Orlando leads the Southeast Division but they are just a game and a half ahead of Miami. The Magic are coming off a tough loss on Monday night in San Antonio.  Orlando had their chances in that game but could not hit shots down the stretch and fell to the Spurs.  Orlando should be very focused for this game on Wednesday since the Heat routed them in Miami last month.

 Here are the basketball betting stats for Wednesday’s game. The Heat are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games. The Heat are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. the Southeast.
