It is matchup of stars as Chris Bosh leads the Raptors while Dwyane Wade leads the Heat. The teams have split their last 10 meetings according to basketball betting statistics.
NBA betting stats show that although the teams have split their last ten games straight up it is Toronto that owns the pointspread. The Raptors are 7-2-1 against the basketball betting number in those games. Last season the Raptors won all four meetings against an admittedly weak Miami team according to NBA bettinghistory. This year the Heat are much more competitive with a healthy Wade leading the team. While the overall trends might support Toronto you may want to throw out last year’s results in terms of NBA betting. Looking back to 2006 and 2007 we see that Miami actually won five of the six meetings between the two teams according to NBA odds numbers. It might be a good idea now to look more at the total than the side considering these two teams look different.
Miami has a much different team than last season. Wade is healthy this season and leading the team in scoring. Shawn Marion is starting to get into the flow of things. Udonis Haslem is still solid in the middle and two rookies have cracked the lineup. Michael Beasley and Mario Chalmers are seeing a lot of playing time. The Raptors also look different with Jermaine O’Neal in the middle. Bosh still leads the team in scoring according to NBA betting stats but O’Neal has given the Raptors a different look.
There are some huge trends in regards to the NBA betting total in this game. The Under is 8-1-1 against the NBA betting number in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. Three of the four games last year went under the basketball betting total. The games at Toronto have been very low scoring according to NBA betting numbers. The last four matchups all went well under the NBA betting number. Last year the scores at Toronto were 91-75 and 96-54 according to basketball betting stats.
