Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat managed to snap their three-game losing streak against the bottom-dwelling Detroit Pistons by six points, 113-107. This was a good bounce-back game after the team got humiliated by 20 points a game prior. Bam Adebayo had his usual numbers of 28 points, 11 boards, and five assists but the big difference was Goran Dragic helping out with 22 points. Duncan Robinson and Kendrick Nunn each had 18 points for the team. This team will come to their next game shorthanded again without key rotation players Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro, and Avery Bradley.

Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors have managed to turn things around as they are on a three-game winning streak by defeating the Charlotte Hornets twice and their latest win was against the Dallas Mavericks. That last game was won by a wide margin of 23 points, 116-93. Kyle Lowry led the team with 23 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists. Chris Boucher should be moving to the team’s starting center position very soon as he posted 21 points, 10 rebounds, and three blocks against the Mavericks. This team did well filling in for Fred VanVleet who just did 20% from the field.
