Match Prediction Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Clippers

This is a tough game to call. The Clippers are the slightly better team, but the Heat are playing at home. I think the Clippers will win a close game, 110-105.


The Heat are favored to win the game, but the Clippers are a good value bet at +190. The spread is also close, so I would stay away from that bet. The over/under is a bit high, so I would lean towards the under.
