Heat vs. Sixers Prediction

The Philadelphia 76ers vs. the Miami Heat will clash from the Sunshine State, Florida, on Wednesday for an Eastern Conference affair. These two teams just played in Philly on Monday night in a game that was tight throughout but won by the Miami Heat. That was a big road win for the Heat, and they are hopeful that they can build off this win.

Jimmy Butler was outstanding on Monday night and hit the go-ahead layup with a minute left in the game. The win for Miami moved their record up to 33-29, which is good for the seventh spot in the East. As we all know, with the new playoff format, the Heat wants to find a way to get the 6 seed or above to avoid the play-in tournament.

Philly, meanwhile, held their No. three in the East despite the poor showing. Joel Embiid played well, but the rest of the Philly cast struggled. The 76ers remain confident that they have a championship roster, and they will continue to trust their guys moving forward. Philly has the hardest remaining schedule in the NBA, and every game is meaningful as they try to remain a top-three team in the East. The 76ers come into this game as a two-point favorite tonight despite their loss on Monday in Philly.

This is a 76ers line all the way, and I will trust them to take care of business tonight. This line opened at -1 for Miami, but it has continued to move in the direction of Philly, and I can not pass up on this line tonight. I expect the 76ers to play this game with a chip on their shoulder tonight after losing at home to the heat on Monday. This should be a perfect get-right spot for the 76ers. One thing that they did not take advantage of was the lack of rim protection when Bam Adebayo was out of the game. I expect to see Philly adjust their rotations and take advantage of those key minutes tonight. Let’s cash in!
