Our Betting Pick for Today Raptors -3


The Raptors have won five of their last seven NBA games and nine of their last 10 home games, showing signs of life offensively. In their last three contests, they scored more than 115 points per game while finding open men with ease and being aggressive on the offensive glass (grabbing over 15 offensive rebounds per game in that span), giving them plenty of scoring chances. Furthermore, they do a good job protecting the ball to limit Heat's chances for easy points; giving up an average of 116 per game over this span so expect slowing down the Raptors may prove challenging in this matchup.

Over Under Heat vs Raptors (230)

Bet the under in this game I think the heat will somewhat struggle to score at times and I look for a 115-108 kind of score in this one.
