Raptors Rarely Lose Two Straight

Dwyane Wade Kyle Lowry

At this point in the NBA postseason, it’s hard to tell which Toronto Raptors team you’re going to see when they take the floor. But as the series with Miami shifts back north of the border, trends are working in Toronto’s favor. The Raptors are 8-0 SU in their last eight games after a loss.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Heat's last 12 games after a win.
  • The Raptors are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Raptors' last 11 games with one day off between games.

Injuries to star big men Jonas Valanciunas and Hassan Whiteside have given this series a different look. Valanciunas has been ruled out for the remainder of the series with an ankle injury, while Whiteside is day-to-day with a sprained ligament in his right knee. Head head coach Erik Spoelstra has announced the center will not play in Game 5.

If the Raps are going to win tonight, they’ll need far better production from their backcourt. Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan were a combined 6 of 28 from the floor in Game 4 and totalled 19 points, with Lowry going 0 for 6 from downtown. DeRozan has shot 33 percent in the postseason, and Lowry is also at 33 percent.

Miami has opened as 4.5-point underdogs for the affair, but they’ve been far from a safe play in this spot. The Heat are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games as dogs, and 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS in their previous 10 when labeled as pups.
