The Clippers and Heat both played on Friday night and they both had to travel in to Miami late on Saturday morning for a game later on tonight against one another. The NBA Odds for this one favor the Heat at -6, but it’s the total of 204 ½ that I have my eye on.

Free NBA Pick: UNDER 205Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

With all of their injuries, the Clippers have turned into one of the worst offensive teams in the NBA. The Heat on the other hand have struggled some as well without Hassan Whiteside, and considering both these teams are coming off games Friday, that could impact how high a scoring game this could be.

So far this young season, these two teams are a combined 4-1-1 cashing the under on the second night of a back to back, and tonight we could see more of that. The total is simply overvalued for two teams who might not make it to 100 points.

The Clippers are scoring only 101 points per game on the road, and the Heat aren’t much better at home. Plus, on the second night of a back to back, the Heat have scored 80 and 86 points, while the Clippers are averaging only 97.1 points per game in three games on no rest this season.

Considering all the injuries along with the poor offense on no rest, I’m thinking one or both of these teams falls below 100 points.
