The Golden State Warriors (23-25) take on the Toronto Raptors (18-30) Friday night. Tip-off is at 7:10 p.m. at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Fla. Below, we analyze the Warriors-Raptors odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Warriors have been in a bit of a slump of late, losing five of their last six games. They also failed to cover the spread in five of those games. Golden State has dealt with several injuries over the last two weeks and that has contributed to the slump. If they are healthy, this is still a dangerous team with an explosive offense.

Toronto is having a tough 2020-2021 season. The Raptors failed to cover the spread in nine of their last 11 games and are on the outside of the playoff picture. Like the Warriors, the Raptors have dealt with their fair share of injuries but even when healthy, this is a team that has struggled to get wins.

Warriors at Raptors: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Warriors 118, Raptors 110

Money line (ML)

The WARRIORS (+110) are the play despite both teams really struggling. Golden State has lost five of its last six games, but the Raptors have actually been far worse; they’ve lost 13 of their last 14 games and will be without Lowry again Friday night.

Neither of these teams are contenders in their respective conferences and are both so inconsistent on a night-to-night basis. Still, we like the Warriors to pull off the “upset”.

Against the spread (ATS)

WARRIORS +2 (-110) is another bet we like if the money line proves to be too risky.

Toronto failed to cover the spread in six of its last seven games and is just 9-12 ATS at home this season. The Warriors haven’t been much better, but getting 2 points against an 18-30 team seems like good value.

Take Golden State to cover on the road on Friday.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 225.5 (-110) is the smart play as both teams rank in the bottom half of the league in points allowed per game.

The Warriors are allowing just under 114 points per game to rank 23rd in the NBA. On the other end of the court, they have been average offensively and are capable of scoring into the 120s on any night.

Look for this to be a fast-paced game where both teams score into the 110s. Take the Over.
