Betting on the Toronto Raptors

The Raptors arrive to this game with a couple of injuries, but with Juancho Hernangómez having a good moment. The Spaniard took the opportunity to shine with the Canadian team. They were able to end a streak of three losses, and it seems that the secondary line has responded for Nurse’s squad at such a difficult time.

Players such as Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, and more recently, Gary Trent Jr. have been down and they won’t play against the Heat, but the team showed itself more solid with Dalano Banton (27 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks) and O.G. Anunoby (19 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks).

Although they defeated the Detroit Pistons 115-111, there were moments in the game in which they suffered. The team’s lack of cohesion was noticeable and they depended a lot on the individual efforts of the Spanish defender who decided to play his best minutes of the season against the Pistons.

The Heat team is looking like a serious team after achieving three wins in a row. Jimmy Butler (16 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists) played a masterful defense in the last play of the game against the Phoenix Suns, where he prevented his team from being defeated with a score of 113-112. What is even more striking is that in the fourth period, Miami came back from a 13-point deficit. My Florida friends are getting serious.

They started the season a little sluggish, but they have already started to get their claws out. They attack, they do damage, and when they defend, they leave you no options. Also, if they are losing they bite until they get the match even. El Heat, or El Calor for the compadres, has gotten in shape. Aside from that, Butler has extra speed and he looks very dangerous, getting into the pace his team needs him to be at.

In addition, Bam Adebayo added 30 extra points, leading the team in the scoring category and rounding out a masterful performance with 10 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season.

The Heat look better, they bring a good pace and a Jimmy Butler that is in his best shape, but Toronto with everything they have gone through and the injuries have found new vitality in the secondary unit. Toronto shook off the bad luck, and can now a win against a strong team that is on the rise as the Heat, and it would help them a lot to take a breath of fresh air and let their injured players recover.

On their part, the Heat are going strong and have already gained a lot of confidence after a shaky start. Several of their players are finding a good level and they are defending like few NBA teams are. They are determined to enter the playoffs and seal an important consecutive win streak that will help them climb up positions in the East.

The last encounters between the two teams have been even, with Toronto winning three of the last five games, and the Heat winning two. Miami can even the score, and judging by the way they are arriving to this game, it seems very possible that they will be able to.

Prediction: Miami Heat Moneyline.
