Score: 101 - 105
Point Spread: -10/-105 Miami
5* NBA EASTERN CONFERENCE GAME OF THE WEEK: Miami Heat -10
Believe it or not, the Heat have lost two straight to the Wizards. Washington took advantage of Miami resting their starters at the end of last season. In the third and final meeting, Washington embarrassed the Heat 104-70. With or without the starters, no one likes to lose by 30 pts and I believe Miami will come out and give this horrible Washington team a beating tonight.
I actually believe there is some value on Miami as a 10-point road favorite in this spot. Last year in the first meeting between these two teams, the Heat were a 12-point road favorite and ended up winning that game 106-89.
In my opinion the Wizards have only played two of the upper-level teams at this point in the season out of either conference in San Antonio and New York (I don't consider Boston in that class right now). They got embarrassed in both of those games, losing at home to the Spurs by 26 and at New York by 21. Miami should have no trouble winning this matchup by a least 11 points. BET THE HEAT!
