The Miami Heat got some revenge on the Orlando Magic last time out, and they’ll be trying to thump them again on Tuesday night when the rivals meet on the hardwood. Get your NBA odds for the rematch at Bovada.
The Magic managed to get past the Heat 102-89 in Orlando when those teams first met this season in early February despite being listed as a 4-point home underdog. Miami, however, returned the favor at home later in the month, winning 90-78 and paying off for their supporters as a 9.5-point favorite on the NBA odds.
LeBron James and company managed to hold Dwight Howard to just 12 points (plus 15 rebounds) in that last matchup; Howard is averaging over 20 points per game on the season. J.J. Redick scored 17 points for Orlando in that loss to the Heat.
James and Dwyane Wade combined for 52 points in that night’s win, with Wade pouring in a team-high 27 points and James settling for 25 points and 11 rebounds. Chris Bosh had an off-night on the scoresheet with just eight points and nine boards.
Overall the Heat and Magic have split their last 10 meetings 5-5, with both teams also managing to pick up five ATS victories over that span. Totals bettors have seen the OVER/UNDER go 4-5-1 in their last 10 matchups.
The Magic trail the Heat in the Southeast Division standings, so a win over Miami on Tuesday night would be a first step toward trying to wrestle away that top spot. The Heat will be looking to further bury their fellow Florida club and continue their battle with the Bulls for first place overall in the Eastern Conference this season.
