NBA Betting – Flailing Heat Host Bobcats

NBA OddsThe main attraction nowadays is NCAA basketball betting but the NBA action is also very exciting. The playoffs are rapidly approaching in the NBA and teams needing to make some ground are getting desperate.

Two of those such teams will meet up on Saturday night as the Charlotte Bobcats will travel to Miami to face the Heat. The Bobcats have moved up the standings recently by winning seven of their last 10 games and appear in line to make their first playoff berth in franchise history.

Meanwhile, the Heat, who used to have expectations of doing a lot more than just qualifying for the playoffs, have had them lowered as they are simply not good enough to compete in the East any more.

That concern may be in the back of Dwyane Wade’s mind as he gets set to test out the free agency market in the summer – or decide to stay in Miami.

The Heat had a nice hot stretch to start the month of March, winning six of seven to start the month, but have since lost two straight.

They know find themselves one game behind the Bobcats in the standings, but they should be able to make up that ground on Saturday.

There are plenty of one-game playoffs going on in the march madness betting ranks and the Bobcats and Heat will play one out for the sixth seed in the East.

It’s a big difference between the two spots as the seven seed will play the Orlando Magic while the six seed will face the Atlanta Hawks.

This will be the last time these two teams square off and the Heat will be looking to get their first win in the season series so far. The Bobcats have swept it so far (3-0) while holding the Heat to just 80 points per game.

The problem for the Heat is that the Bobcats are just a smart defensive team. They know how to shutdown Dwayne Wade and keep everyone else in check.

Even so, the Heat won’t get swept in this series as Wade has been on fire this month. In March, he leads the NBA in scoring and he will find a way to put his team on his back and carry them to an important win.
