Point Spread Pick:

The Heat haven’t been a covering machine as of late going 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 overall and are on a bankroll crushing 3-10 run versus the line on the road. The Bobcats are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 as a host and have won 6 of the last 7 home tilts straight up. The Charlotte played hard in the second half against Miami and I look for the effort on Saturday at Time Warner Cable Arena in front of their home fans.
Take the Charlotte Bobcats +5.5.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
