Game: Miami Heat at Philadelphia 76ers Mar 16 2012 7:05PM
Prediction: Miami Heat
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: Miami has dropped its last two games but a trip to Philadelphia should put an end to that. The Heat lost at Orlando in overtime and then dropped its last game in Chicago on Wednesday and they will be looking to avoid their second three-game losing streak of the season. The swagger that was there during a nine-game winning streak and a 20-3 run has been absent as Miami is just 1-6 ATS in its last seven games but it has won 11 of its last 13 games against the Sixers, including nine straight in the regular season. The Sixers lost to the Pacers on Wednesday after winning three straight against the Celtics, Jazz and Knicks and this is the first game of a tough two-game stretch as they head to Chicago tomorrow. Philadelphia leads the Atlantic Division by a game and a half over the Celtics and while it has been a good season so far, a lot of that is due to the scheduling as the Sixers have played the 27th ranked schedule in the NBA. They have been great as favorites but horrible as underdogs. The Heat have comfortably taken both meetings this season against Philadelphia and while that sets up double revenge for the Sixers, it goes beyond that. As mentioned, they have lost nine straight regular season games in this series and as good as revenge can be as a motivator, sometimes the matchups simply get in the way. Motivation could be stronger on the other side as Miami has lost four straight road games and it has not lost five straight on the highway since 2007-08. That was their infamous 15-win season. Miami was coming off a loss in its last visit to Philadelphia as two nights earlier it blew an 18-point lead at Milwaukee so the situation is somewhat similar. Miami is 15-7 against the top 16 in the NBA including 12-5 against the top ten while Philadelphia is just 6-14 against the top 16 including 6-8 against the top ten. The Sixers are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games against teams with a winning record and to no surprise they are just 1-3 as home underdogs this season. 10* (803) Miami Heat
