Toronto Raptors Betting

The Toronto Raptors have been rebuilding well and the down season led them to draft young rookie Scottie Barnes. This player has been in the running for the rookie of the year honors beside Evan Mobley of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Cade Cunningham of the Detroit Pistons. This team is still not there but they have good pieces to build on along with Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet. Other players who have great potential to become special in the league are OG Anunoby, Chris Bouchard and Precious Achiuwa. The Raptors are positioned to make it to the NBA play-in tournament as of the moment.

Miami Heat Betting

The Miami Heat has been the best team in the NBA Eastern Conference even if they had a fair share of short-term injuries, inconsistency of some players and health protocol restrictions. Thanks to the next-man-up mentality of the team, the system of Pat Riley’s protege Erik Spoelstra is in full bloom. Tyler Herro has been the most consistent player so far for the Heat and he leveled up his game entering this season to compliment Jimmy Butler. Duncan Robinson has been a lethal sniper whenever he is on the floor and the team has Bam Adebayo back from injury.
