Since betting on NBA games always involves a spread, there are really not blowout type games. The Miami Heat should be able to dominate the NBA’s worst team in the Charlotte Bobcats. However, the 15-point spread makes my free NBA picks a bit more difficult.
The Bobcats are very bad, but they come in more rested. The Heat lost a tough overtime game against the Chicago Bulls the night before, and they have to return to Miami and get in late. With the talent the Heat have though, they should be able to roll out of bed and win.
Beating any NBA team by 15 points is pretty difficult. I actually think that the Heat will be fired up to blow out a team on Friday. They are still going to be a bit upset about that tough loss the night before, and they are not about to be embarrassed by a team with single-digit wins.
I expect the Heat to win big, covering the 15-point spread. Most of my free NBA picks focus on the closer matchups, but this is an interesting one to bet on as well. This spread could easily be 20 points in my opinion. Expect the Heat to cruise and put up a ton of points.
Pick: Miami Heat (-15), over (193.5)
