Joe D'amico's NBA 80% Blue Chip
Miami vs. Philadelphia,
03/13/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 98 - 94
Point Spread: -8½/-107 Miami
Today's winner is Miami over Philadelphia. This is my Blue Chip.
Miami has won 19 straight games, The Heat have already clinched a playoff spot and sport a 9 1/2 game lead in the East. They have covered their L7 road games and met and beat Philly on Friday for the 13th straight time. That was a game in which Lebron and company totaled 60 points in the paint . D Wade has been on another level, averaging 26.0 PPG, 60% shooting, and 5.6 RPG over his L10 contests. Wayne has smoked the 76ers this year, averaging 27.5 PPG and 68% shooting from the field. The 76ers dropped 12 of their L14, going 6-8 ATS, including a 2-4 ATS mark at home with an average margin of defeat…10 PPG in those 12 losses (of the L14). This isn't anywhere near the same team we saw play swarming defense just last season. And at 24-39, they dwell in the cellar of the Atlantic Division. The Road Team is 5-0 ATS their L5 games played in this series, 5-1 ATS their L6 games played at the 76ers, and 4-1 ATS their L5 vs. the Atlantic. Take Miami. Thank you.
