The 14-7 Golden St Warriors will travel to play the 14-5 Miami Heat in an NBA pro basketball game on Wednesday night. Kick off time from Miami is set for 7:30PM Eastern Time with national television coverage provided by the NBA League Pass Channel.

The NBA odds from this game have the home side Miami Heat favored by -8 points with an over under of 205 points. When the odds were opened up a few hours ago the Heat was -8 ½ point favorites with the over under at 205. We have seen no movement on the total and a ½ point on the underdog Warriors.

The Warriors and Heat met once during the lockout season last year and it was Golden St with the 111-106 home overtime win against Miami as a +9 point underdog. The game ended over 197 points. Trend: Golden St Warriors are 6-2 ATS in their past two games.

This will be the fifth game of a seven game road trip for Golden St. They have won the first four games of this trip with wins against Detroit, Brooklyn, Washington and Charlotte. Some pretty bad Eastern conference clubs in there and Brooklyn was without Brook Lopez. The Warriors have won seven of their past eight games. They come off the 104-96 road win against Charlotte on Monday night as a -4 ½ point favorite. The game ended under 202 points. During this road trip they allowed just one team over 100 points. Head coach Mark Jackson has preached defense since landing at Golden St He has done one heck of a coaching job as Golden St allows just 43.1% shooting from the field. Stephen Curry leads the team with 20 points a game this season and, cross your fingers, is in good health.

After an embarrassing 20 point home loss to New York Knicks last Thursday the team has rebounded with two wins and covering the spread in each game as they beat New Orleans by 16 points and on Monday Miami posts the 101-92 home win against the Atlanta Hawks as a -6 ½ point favorite. Lebron James and Dwayne Wade contributed with 53 of the Heat’s 101 points in the win as the team shot over 58% from the floor. Miami brought intensity to the game as they limited Atlanta to 42.7% shooting. The question for the Heat is will they bring this intensity consistently this regular season. Defending World Champions tend to sleep walk during the regular season at times.
