Heat (-1) @ Spurs (221.5)

Pick: Spurs +1

Call me stubborn, but I’m going right back to the well and fading the Miami Heat on the road. We lost on Friday with this angle as Miami went into Oklahoma City and left with a 115-108 win over the Thunder. However, it’s the fifth road game in the last six for the Heat and San Antonio played with Miami for 48 minutes in South Beach last week only to fall one field goal shy of covering the five-point spread as the Heat snuck out with a 106-100 win. San Antonio hits the halfway point today and comes into Sunday’s game two games out of the final playoff spot needing to jump Phoenix and Memphis in order to get on the right side of the line. Something tells me the Spurs have a run in them in the second half and it starts this week with this game against Miami and two big games against the Suns. San Antonio gets out early here and the Spurs coast in the second half.
