According to oddsmakers from oddsmakers at RealBets, Miami is favored at home in this game, as the Heat are getting odds of -4.5 points against the Raptors. The over/under total for the game has been set at 187 points.

Miami is 15-9 on the season, 11-4 at home and 11-12-1 against the spread. Toronto is 16-11 on the season, 8-7 on the road and 16-11 against the spread. Miami has won eight of its last 10 against Toronto, covering the spread in seven of those 10 meetings. These two met once this season, with Miami getting a 20-point home victory.

The Raptors are coming off a tough overtime loss at Charlotte last night. Earlier this season, Toronto lost to Miami, 96-76. Toronto is too dependent on their backcourt as injuries to DeMarre Carroll and Jonas Valanciunas have hampered their production. Look for that to lead to more problems against Miami.
