Toronto, one of the tougher teams in the East that nobody talks about, is a heavy favorite tonight against Miami. The spread is big, but maybe not big enough for your NBA picks.

Miami broke a six-game losing streak over the weekend, winning and covering against the Bucks. However, after being impressive for most of the season against the number, the Heat have started to falter in that area, going 2-3 ATS in their last five games.

Now they are in Toronto, one of the toughest places to play in the league. The Raptors are 16-11 ATS this season at home and are big favorites tonight on the NBA odds board.

The Raptors have been hot lately and I can’t see them losing this one. They are holding opponents to 94.6 points per game in their last five, and have won and covered all five of those. During that same, the Raptors are averaging 116 points per game and playing at a faster pace.

Look at the beat-down they put on Charlotte on the road two nights ago when they scored 123 points:

Even though -8 seems like a lot, it’s a great play tonight with your NBA picks. The Heat are coming off a long layoff, and while that could help their legs, the Raptors are dialed in right now and I don’t think there is much the Heat can do in this one.
