Betting preview for Tuesday's NBA games


Congratulations to the Houston Rockets!

John Wall dropped a triple double(19 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists), and Jae’Sean Tate combined with Sterling Brown for 42 points as the Rockets snapped an 0-20 SU/2-18 ATS slide with a 117-99 win over Toronto. It was great to see the relief on the faces of Houston's players and staff, but this is a cold world and we have to move on to the real story here: The Toronto Raptors.

Rumors have been everywhere about the Raptors. Miami and Philadelphia are reportedly the favorites to land Kyle Lowry prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, but other reports have stated the team has no interest in moving the longtime point guard. Norm Powell, in the midst of a fantastic season, is also allegedly on the block. The loss drops the Raptors to 0-9 SU/3-6 ATS in their last nine games, and one would assume, moves them closer to selling off its best assets. If those moves are made Toronto could becomes one of the lowest power-rated teams in the league, but it is clear the market is not there yet as currently constructed.

The Main Event

Phoenix Suns at Miami Heat (-1, 218)

After using an 11-1 SU/9-3 ATS run to thrust themselves back into contention, the Heat have fallen back down to Earth. Miami enters Tuesday’s meeting with Phoenix on an 0-3 SU/ATS slide, and its offense has been nowhere to be found. Over this three-game slide, they have averaged just 100.7 points every 100 possessions, shot 40.3% from the floor and 24.8% from beyond the arc. The shooting woes have plagued the Heat all season long, and this particular slump stretches over the previous 10 games in which they have hit just 29.5% of their 36.6 3-point attempts per game. Bettors should not expect the shooting to correct itself tonight against the Suns’ third-ranked perimeter defense (34.9% on 3-pointers allowed), but if the Heat can get some consistent pressure at the rim they might be able to turn in a decent offensive performance.
