The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Heat are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 home games. The under is 4-1 in Raptors last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Heat last 5 home games. The Raptors are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors are playing their best ball of the season, but they're also on the end of a back to back in this spot. The Miami Heat finally return home after a lengthy road trip, and they're coming off solid wins over the Lakers and Thunder. They still have some showing and proving to do, but the Heat are showing signs of getting on their feet. I'll lay the bucket with the rested home team here.
