Miami Heat vs Cleveland Cavaliers Tips
Cleveland Cavaliers -2 @ -110 (1.90)
Under 217.5 points @ -110 (1.90)
Analysis and Reason for Predictions
The Heat are 1-4 on the road this season
Miami Heat will visit Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse for the Sunday Night clash against Eastern Conference rivals Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Heat are 7-8 this season but Erik Spoelstra and the team’s fans will be worried ahead of this trip knowing Miami have only won one match on the road since the beginning of the season.
The Heat had, however, been on a three-game winning streak before the 112-104 road loss to Toronto Raptors on Wednesday evening.
Looking at the statistical parameters, the Heat are weaker than the Cavs in most segments, including both offensive and defensive ratings.
Their offense did not look great in the mentioned loss to the Raptors on Wednesday. Can we finally see a strong Miami performance on the road this Sunday?
Cleveland Cavaliers have lost five consecutive matches
To make matters worse for Miami and their fans, Cleveland Cavaliers have been thriving on the home floor this season.
The Cavs are 4-1 at home and they will be extremely motivated to initiate a winning thread after losing five successive games recently.
Much like Miami, the Cavs were in action on Wednesday and Friday. They did not have much to hope for in general in the 113-98 away loss to the likes of Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday at Fiserv Forum.
Both Mitchell and Garland had a poor shooting evening on the occasion. The former went 7-for-19 from the field, while the latter was 8-for-20.
The home court will represent a big factor here
The home court advantage may play a big role in this matchup looking at the two outfits’ records so far in the season. The Cavaliers have lost just once on the home floor this term while Miami Heat are 1-4 on the road. This is why we will take the Cavs to win in -2 points at the -110 odds. You can alternatively back the Under 217.5 points in the match since neither team thrived offensively of late.
