As I don't have to write tips during the morning and during the afternoon because of work, I will post some NBA tips during these days. I will start today. Miami Heat will host Atlanta Hawks for a very interesting match.
Miami Heat have played two matches. In both of these two matches, they have played amazing offense and very bad defense. In fact, they lost the first game away from home against Orlando Magic 116-109 and then they won at home 112-108 against Indiana Pacers. Both of these two matches were very high tempo matches and I'm expecting something similiar today especially considering how Atlanta Hawks are defending. Miami Heat are playing good level of basketball but they need to improve their defense as they have played bad in defense during the pre-season too.
In fact, Atlanta Hawks have played 3 matches losing two of them. They won the first game on the road 117-111 against Dallas Mavericks (one of the worst teams in NBA right now) and then they have lost 109-91 against Charlotte Hornets and 116-104 against Brooklyn Nets. As we can notice, they have conceded at least 109 points in all of the first 3 matches played and I see them conceding a lot of points too today. Atlanta Hawks are not playing good and today they will play against a very tough opponent. On the other hand, their offense didn't work good only against Charlotte Hornets...It's true that Miami Heat was one of the best defense last season especially at home but this is a new season and things change. Considering how both teams started, I think that the best bet for this match is to go for an over 203,5. Line is too low considering that both are playing high tempo of basketball. I'm expecting more than 203 points in this one.
Prediction: Miami Heat 115-108 Atlanta Hawks
