Who We Like: Miami won the first meeting this season by a 90-89 score in Toronto on Jan. 9. The last 10 meetings are tied 5-5 ATS, while the under has hit the last five meetings and is 7-3 over the last 10. The Heat snapped a five-game losing skid their last game with a 91-85 home win over the Bucks. Miami is 5-4-1 ATS in its last 10 games. The under has gone 7-3. Toronto is on a five-game winning streak and has covered the spread each game. The Raptors are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games, while the under has gone 6-4.

Toronto is on a roll, while the Heat have struggled to stay afloat lately. Add in the fact that the Raptors are 23-4 at home and have regularly blown teams out on their home court and it only sides me more firmly with the Raptors. Take the team playing extremely good basketball right now.
