NBA betting value has been about the same for both teams, which means that there has been little traction for bet on NBA profits this year on either side. NBA betting fans have come to accept the fact that the Miami Heat are the classic case of a true “one man team”.
That one man that is so essential to the bet on NBA fortunes of Miami is Dwyane Wade. When Wade is in the lineup the Heat are a decent NBA betting commodity and a post season contender. Without Wade, as was the case last season, the Heat are a last place team.
Miami had an overall NBA betting record of 25-21 straight up and 21-23-2 against the NBA betting odds. This was good for third place in the southeast division. Wade has been about the only offense Miami has been able to muster as they ranked just 23rd overall in the NBA for total offense.
Their bet on NBA strength has been their 11th ranked defense. Wade is one of the main NBA betting assets that can be found anywhere as he led the team in scoring with an average of 28.5 points per game while also leading the team in assists with 7 per game.
Miami got the NBA betting cash in six out of ten games from January 13 through January 31. The Philadelphia 76ers had a slow start to the NBA betting season but have climbed into playoff contention on the strength of a 10th ranked defense.
Philadelphia had an overall NBA betting record of 23-23 straight up and 22-23-1 against the NBA betting odds. From January 19 through January 31, however, the Sixers went back into the NBA betting tank with just one payoff in six games.NBA betting fans expected Elton Brand to make a significant impact upon his arrival in the off season and he led the team in rebounds with an average of 9 per game.
