Wizards vs Heat Vegas Odds have Miami at -6.5 with Dwayne Wade listed as doubtful
Tonight the defending NBA champion Miami Heat will try to avoid their first four-game losing streak in over three years. Wizards vs Heat Vegas Odds for the 7:30 PM tip-off have Miami listed at -6.5 on the spread despite Dwayne Wade expected to miss tonight’s game. Our Vegas Sports Picks sharps handicapped the match-up of playoff contenders. Wizards vs Heat Vegas Odds have Washington as +255 Moneyline underdogs (Wager $1000 to win $2550) CARBON SPORTS
NBA Picks Analysis: Heat point guard Dwayne Wade will sit which affects the spread by only 1.o-point due to the Heat’s great depth. Despite the Miami’s deep roster they will have to deal with a Wizard team that is white hot having won 8 of their last 9 games. Miami’s vulnerabilities to the three-point shot could be exposed by the Wizards sharpshooters who have scored 100+ points six games in a row. Wizards vs Heat Vegas Odds Total is at 204.0 points

Washington is flying under the radar and Washington ballers Trevor Ariza and John Wall are itching to let the champions have it on the big stage. Having covered in 55.7% of their contests the Wizards are one of the best bets in the NBA. Lebron James shot has been off since going bananas with 61 points about a week ago and Wade’s hot hand (21.3 ppg last 3) will be missed. Play the Wizards to cover with a healthy amount of points against the struggling champs.

Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Charlo -215 on the Canelo Alvarez vs Angulo undercard
The Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo undercard will feature undefeated Jermall Charlo squaring off against Carlos Molina for the I.B.F. jr. middleweight title. Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Jermall Charlo, 17-0, 13 KO’s, as a 2 to 1 favorite over Molina, 22-5, 6 KO’s, according to fight picks experts. Our handicappers broke down the PPV bout scheduled to go off at 10 PM ET from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Charlo at -235 moneyline (Wager $2150 to win $1000) at SPORTS BETTING ONLINE
Fight Picks Analysis: Molina is a durable spoiler that comes to fight but against the versatile and fast Charlo he will be outgunned. The 6’0″ Charlo is an electrifying offensive fighter with power in both hands. Molina is cagey and will make for an elusive target but eventually he will get hammered shooting his .22 against Charlo’s .357 Magnums in both mitts. Molina works the body effectively and has a good left hook but his physical limitations will keep him a step behind Charlo. Charlo vs Molina Vegas Odds have Molina as a +185 moneyline underdog at SBO
Jermall Charlo is a fast rising prospect and the Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo undercard will be his chance to showcase his skills. Against a similar foe, Molina gave deadly puncher James Kirkland a helluva a fight until his corner got him DQ’d. Charlo is much better technically than Kirkland however and is 3″ taller than the 5’9″ Molina. Molina has never been stopped but our sharps expect Jermall Charlo to end that streak in spectacular fashion. After being arrested Thursday Molina’s task of focusing on Charlo becomes even more daunting. Bet Charlo big to leave Molina on the canvas.
Fight Picks Play: Jermall Charlo -235

Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds have Canelo at 10 to 1 “chalk”
A firefight between two hard-hitters lands on the Vegas strip when Jr. middleweights Canelo Alvarez and Alfredo Angulo fight in a 12-rounder on PPV. Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds have Alvarez listed as a 10 to 1 betting favorite. Canelo Alvarez, 42-1-1, 30 KO’s, is coming off a one-sided decision loss to pound-4-pound champion Floyd Mayweather six months ago. Angulo, 22-3, 18 KO’s, uncharacteristically turned his back and quit in the 10th round of a close fight nine months ago against W.B.A. champ Erislandy Lara. Our fight picks sharps broke down the betting lines. Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds have Angulo as a +600 moneyline underdog (Bet $1000 to win $6000) at SPORTS BETTING ONLINE
Fight Picks Analysis: “El Perro” Angulo is a strong hombre that comes forward and launches bombs but Canelo should outbox him fairly easy. Alvarez is a refined technician that is equipped with the All-Star tools one would expect from an elite young pugilist. Angulo is a “bully type” that looks great when he is winning but quickly loses bravado once he gets hammered back. Alvarez will be able to set up his brutal combinations behind the jab against the stationary head of “El Perro” who rarely slips a punch. Canelo’s smooth footwork should also give the plodding slugger Angulo fits. Canelo Alvarez vs Alfredo Angulo Vegas Odds Total is at 8.5 Rounds with the Over at -140 at SBO
Angulo comes wide with his punches and Canelo will counterpunch the wild swings with heavy hooks, uppercuts and crosses. Angulo could have his moments early against the slow starting Alvarez but once the younger and faster fighter hits his stride it will be game over for Angulo. Expect Alvarez to easily outbox the slower Angulo on his way to a wide decision win or late stoppage.
