As we head into the final stretch of the NBA season, bettors are looking to capitalize on the remaining games. Today, we have four games on the schedule, and we're seeing some sharp action that could help us beat the public.
MIA Heat at PHI 76ers
The Heat will be taking on the 76ers in Philadelphia, and the public is heavily favoring the home team. The 76ers are getting 79% of the bets and 71% of the handle, but the line has moved in favor of the Heat, with Miami getting 21% of the handle. This suggests sharp bettors are taking Miami and fading the public. We agree with the sharps and think Miami will cover the 5.5-point spread.
