The Line: Miami -2 -- Over/Under: 198.5 See the Latest Odds
The Toronto Raptors head to Miami on Sunday to face off against the Miami Heat.
The Miami Heat are currently sitting at 2-0 this season, as the Heat try and prove to everyone that they are still a solid team, even without that LeBron guy hanging around. The Heat are coming off a solid win against the Sixers, defeating Philly 114-96 on the road on Saturday. The Heat put on an offensive show against the Sixers, with five different players reaching double digit points on the night. Miami was led by Bosh, who finished with 30 on the night against the Sixers, but Deng, Williams and Cole also finished with double digit points, and off the bench, Chalmers finished with 20 as well. The Heat are playing like a team with something to prove right now, but having to play at home after a road trip to Philly the night before isn’t the easiest of home games.

The Toronto Raptors, like the Heat, are playing some solid ball right now. The Raptors are 2-0 on the season, with wins against the Hawks and the Magic. Toronto’s latest win was against those Magic on Saturday, where the Raptors defeated Orlando 108-95. The Raptors went nuts against the Magic, having six different players reach double digit points on the night, with Valanciunas leading the charge with 10 points and 11 boards. The Raptors are attacking the boards this season, and that will be needed on Sunday against Miami if the Raptors want to get the upset.
The Miami Heat are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games against the Raptors, and the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Miami.
I'm going to have to go with the Heat on this one. Miami is the better team, and even though I don't like the travel situation for the Heat here, I do like them to get the win, is what is basdiclaly a pick'em line.
