Miami always seems to open games well. They have outscored their opponents by exactly 50 points in the first quarters in the month of February and they have covered this first quarter spread in seven of their last eight games. Jimmy Butler is averaging 10.9 minutes in the first-quarter among his last 15 games. That is so key to our bet as Knicks could come out hot but Spoelstra's rotations could help Miami finish the quarter stronger as New York's second unit is getting punished by Butler and company.

Bet $1, Get $150 on the NBA New York most certainly isn’t a bad first-quarter team, I would argue it’s their best quarter but Miami is just another level. RJ Barrett remains questionable heading into this one Derrick Rose is doubtful. Kemba Walker has been shut down for the season so New York should be thin when it comes to ball handlers and Randle should have a tough time dealing with Adebayo. I just think Miami matches up really well with the Knicks and I like them to cover the complete game spread of -6 as well.

Miami last time out vs New York outscored them by 14 points in the 1st quarter. We just need Miami to lead here by 2, we’re not asking them to do rocket science. This is just one of those bets you don’t overthink, Miami is the better team, they’ve covered this 1st quarter spread in 7 of their last 8 and last time out vs the same team they’ve demolished them in the 1st quarter. Why would I believe this time should be any different? Give me the Heat again tonight to pay us once more.
