The Raptors are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Heat are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Raptors last 4 overall. The over is 7-2 in Heat last 9 overall. The Raptors are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Miami and 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

The Toronto Raptors are piling up the wins and have been covering machines these last couple of weeks, but they still have issues on the road and aren't as trustworthy in spots like this. The Miami Heat will be without Lowry for this contest, but Bam Adebayo is expected to return from a thumb injury, so the sky isn't exactly falling here. The Heat win at home by an average of 6.6 points. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Heat at home.
