Heat vs Rockets Preview
Houston will travel to Miami on Monday night for a battle versus the Heat. For the latest NBA betting trends and NBA free picks on Monday’s game, check out our Heat vs Rockets preview below.
Victor Oladipo Is Back
Victor Oladipo has yet to play in a game this season for this Miami Heat team and they have still been able to accomplish what they’ve been able to accomplish. Miami has undoubtedly been the most consistent team in the Eastern Conference this season and the fact that they are doing it without Victor Oladipo is very impressive.
Miami is coming into this one on a two-game winning streak as they were able to come away with a highly impressive win against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. In this game, Miami won 99-82. Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro were both able to score 21 points each.
On the season, Miami has the fifth rated net rating, the eighth rated offensive rating, and the fifth rated defensive rating.
Rockets Looking For Any Win
The Houston Rockets have certainly not played the type of basketball that this team was hoping for as of late. They’re coming into this one on a 12-game losing streak, and although they have been able to keep a few games close, they haven’t been able to get the job done and walk away with a victory.
In their latest loss against the Denver Nuggets where they lost 116-101, Christian Wood led the way with 22 points while Jalen Green was right behind him at 18.
On the season, the Rockets have the lowest-rated net rating in the NBA, the 27th ranked offense in the NBA, and the 30th ranked defense, which puts them last.

Free NBA Picks — Heat vs Rockets
For this game, I’m going to go with the Miami Heat to cover the spread. The arena is going to be jumping on Monday night as they finally get to watch Victor Oladipo play so I expect there to be a lot of chemistry and just a ton of passion and fire from this Miami Heat team as they take on this below-average Houston Rockets team.
I’m also going to go with Tyler Herro to score 20-plus points to secure us some better odds. With the way Tyler Herro has been playing recently, I expect this hot streak that he has been on for most of the season to continue against a below-average Rockets defense.
