Toronto vs. Miami,
01/02/2020 19:30 EDT,
Score: 76 - 84
Point Spread: -5½/-105 Miami
The Heat already hammered the Raptors, at Toronto. Playing at home, they should have the advantage once again. While the Raptors are a modest 9-6 on the road, the Heat are a dominant 15-1 here at home. Thats the fewest homecourt losses of any team in the league. They've outscored visiting teams by an average margin of 12 points, an average score of 117.7 to 105.8. By comparison, the champs only outscore teams 106.9 to 103.3 on the road. With the Raptors just 1-3 ATS when attempting to avenge a "same season loss," consider laying the points with Miami.
NBA GAME OF THE MONTH GOES TODAY!
While he split his New Year's Day basketball, (won with Cincy, lost with Portland) Ben Burns' first "GAME OF THE MONTH" selection (Jan Bowl GOM) from 2020 resulted in a "W," as Georgia took down Baylor. His second comes from the pro hardwood, as Ben doesn't expect to find a stronger NBA play this entire month. It goes today and its an ABSOLUTE GEM. Whatever you do, do NOT miss it!
