What happens when the two worst ATS teams in the league face off? Well, one of them will cover … probably. I can guarantee the public will think it’s the New Cavs, and I may agree with them after seeing what they did to my Celtics.

We have six games tonight, and we’re pencil diving into the deep end for each one. Time to make the big bucks. — Mark Gallant

MIAMI HEAT AT TORONTO RAPTORS (-8) | O/U: 204.5
7 p.m. ET
What the metrics say: Miami broke out of a brutal five-game losing streak on Friday with a home win vs. the Bucks. It was an ugly offensive affair that ended 91-85, and the Heat produced just 92.8 points per 100 possessions. They’ve played the Raptors just once this year, and it was a very similar game: Miami won 90-89, and they held Toronto to just 94.7 points/100. Despite the last game, the Heat are struggling of late, ranking 21st over the past 10 games with a -2.8 net rating. They are better on the road this season, but the Raps are especially dominant at home, ranking first in the league with a +12.0 net rating. Further, the Raps are rolling right now, ranking even ahead of the Jazz with a massive +13.5 net rating over the past 10 games. The Heat are a feisty, well-coached team, but the Raps are clearly the superior squad on a night-to-night basis. — Bryan Mears
