Heat VS Raptors Picks
So far this season the Heat and Raptors have split their regular season series, both currently sitting with one win each. In an evenly contested matchup, health may be the defining factor for either side to escape with the victory.
In their last matchup, the Heat defeated the Phoenix Suns in a thriller. Coming down to the final shot, All-Star Jimmy Butler swatted away Devin Bookers game winning shot attempt and secured his team the much-needed win at home.
On the other side of the court, the Raptors were also victorious in their last outing, but against less-impressive competition. After fighting off a late surge from the Detroit Pistons, the Raptors were able to pull off the shorthanded win on the road.
With both teams riding high on the momentum of their last wins, look for tonight’s matchup to go down to the wire as both sides look to begin their climb back up the Eastern Conference standings.
Moneyline/Point Spread Pick: Miami Heat (ML/-1.5)
As it presently stands, the Miami Heat are the best bet to take home the road win against the Raptors. With a deeper and more healthy roster, look for the Heat to storm into Scotiabank Arena and make off with the victory.
The Raptors have struggled to find reliable minutes from their role players in the absence of several starters. Aside from OG Anunoby and Chris Boucher, the Raptors haven’t found consistency from their team over the past few matchups. With Scottie Barnes going through what seems to be a sophomore slump, the Raptors will once again rely on their weak bench unit to help push them to victory.
Facing a Miami Heat team that excels at picking apart weaker opponents, they will have a fantastic shot at running away with the score in tonight’s matchup. Riding a three-game win streak, the Heat will look to extend this to four games straight as they bully the beat up Raptors.
Back the Heat to pull of the win against the Raptors, covering a thin 1.5-point spread in the process. The Heat have great value as both a moneyline or point spread bet, so pick your poison and secure yourself a winning bet slip on tonight’s action.
Over/Under Pick: Over 216 Points
Even after missing several of their top players over the past two weeks, the Toronto Raptors offence has surprisingly still produced effectively. Averaging 110.7 points per game over their last three matchups, the Raptors haven’t missed a beat in offensive productivity.
The Heat have also looked exceptional on offence as of late, currently averaging a staggering 120.7 points over their last three contests, a massive increase from their total season average. Facing a Raptors squad that recently hasn’t looked like themselves on the defensive end, look for the Heat to continue their impressive scoring streak at the expense of the Raptors.
While both teams may be known for their defence, bet the Over on the Heat VS Raptors point total in tonight’s matchup and watch the scoreboard rise as well as your bankroll after placing this winning wager.
