NBA Betting Trends

Toronto

The Raptors are just 5-12 against the spread in their last 17 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six conference games.

Miami

The Heat have covered the spread in seven straight against Atlantic Division opponents and in five of their last six against winning teams.

Prediction:

Miami is playing really well and finally beating the bad opponents. The Heat were always pretty good about rising up against better competition, so I don’t expect them to take a step back today. Toronto is without its best player and not be a team you can really count on at the betting window anyway. I don’t like the Raptors as the favorite in this game this afternoon.

NBA Prediction: Miami Heat +1.5
