The Miami Heat are coming off an emotional loss to the Denver Nuggets that saw Nikola Jokic and Markieff Morris get into it

Now, Miami stays on the road to face the Los Angeles Lakers, who are still without LeBron James, on Wednesday night. 

Anthony Davis, who has also been banged up, is probable for tonight’s matchup, which is a great sign for Los Angeles. The Heat have lost two of their last three games, but can they bounce back tonight? 

Here are the odds via WynnBET:

Heat vs. Lakers Odds, Spread and Total


  • Heat -4.5 (-110)
  • Lakers +4.5 (-110)


  • Heat: -175
  • Lakers: +155


  • 214.0 (Over -110/Under -110)

Heat vs. Lakers Prediction and Pick

This rematch of the 2020 NBA Finals should be a good one, but I’m actually surprised that the Heat are favored by this much on Wednesday on the road.

Miami has a plus-9.0 net rating this season, including the NBA’s No. 6 defense, but it’s a little jarring to see the Lakers as an underdog at home. 

That being said, Los Angeles is just 2-6 against the spread at home this season and still hasn’t really found its groove without LeBron this season. I’m going to take the Heat in this matchup to bounce back, but this does feel like a bit of a trap line after the Lakers beat the Hornets in their last game. 

Pick: Heat -4.5 (-110)
