Raptors vs. Heat Game 4 Pick
The Toronto Raptors look to take a commanding 3-1 lead on the Miami Heat when the two meet in Game 4 of their series at 8PM ET.
According to the oddsmakers are BetDSI, Miami is favored at home tonight, as the Heat are getting odds of -5.5 points against the Raptors. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 189.5 points. Toronto has a 2-1 lead in this series.
Toronto is 62-30 overall, 25-19 on the road and 48-44 against the spread. Miami is 53-39 overall, 31-15 at home and 49-42-1 against the spread. Toronto managed to pick up a 95-91 win in Miami for Game 3. It was the first time the Raptors covered the spread in this series.
Miami could be in trouble as the team lost Hassan Whiteside during Game 3 to a sprained MCL. He is listed as questionable for this game, but would certainly be less than 100 percent as he’s dealing with a similar injury that Steph Curry has. Whiteside averages 12 points and 11 rebounds this season and his loss was certainly felt in Game 3. Similarly, Toronto is without Jonas Valanciunas, who suffered a sprained ankle. However, the Raptors seem to have the bodies to help make up for his loss. Miami can’t say the same. Look for Toronto to be able to capitalize on the injuries and take a commanding lead today.
