NBA Roundup- March 5

March Madness is not just for college hoops especially in the case of the resurgent Miami Heat. Despite a tough 106-103 loss to Houston on Tuesday night as 1.5-point road underdogs on VietBets’ closing betting line, they remain one of the hottest teams in the league with just three straight-up losses in their last 17 games and a profitable 7-1-1 record against the spread in their last nine outings. LeBron James followed-up a career-high 61 points in a win against Charlotte on Sunday night with just 22 points in the loss to the Rockets.

Indiana Pacers

Indiana also came up just short on Tuesday it its bid to extend its current winning streak to six games in a 98-96 loss to Golden State as a five-point home favorite. It has been the opposite story when it comes to betting on the Pacers with a costly 2-9-1 record ATS in their last 12 games. With both of the top teams in the East losing, Indiana’s lead over the Heat remains at two games. The Pacers will be back in action on Wednesday night against Charlotte, but VietBet has yet to release a betting line for this game.

Race for the top spot in the Western Conference

The race for the top spot in the Western Conference has turned into a five-team logjam with Oklahoma City still on top by a game and a half over San Antonio. The Thunder have won their last three games after enduring a three-game slide and they are just 2-4-1 ATS in their last seven games. The Spurs are riding a four-game winning streak into Thursday’s huge showdown against Miami and they are 5-3 ATS in their last eight contests.


The Los Angeles Clippers knocked-off Phoenix 104-96 on Tuesday night as 4.5-point road favorites to remain tie with Houston and Portland for third place in the West. This trio of teams is now 4.5 games out of the lead. The Clippers will look to extend their current winning streak to six games both SU and ATS this Thursday night against the rival Lakers.

Portland Trail Blazers

The Trail Blazers recent five-game winning streak came to an end this past Monday with a stunning 107-106 loss to the Lakers as 12-point home favorites.
