Raptors at Wizards: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Raptors 123, Wizards 113
Money line (ML)
The Raptors (-225) should win this game but the money line figure draws a PASS. It’s too steep of a price to trust with the Raps getting near the end of their road trip and with the Wizards returning home from a four-game swing of their own.
The Raptors rely heavily on 3-point shooting. While they should find success against the Wizards’ 26th-ranked 3-point defense and last-place overall scoring defense (120.1 points per game allowed) we’ll get better value with Toronto while it lays a few points on the spread.
Against the spread (ATS)
Back the RAPTORS -5.5 (-110) to win by at least 6 points on the road. Each of Washington’s last seven losses was by a double-digit margin and it’s just 2-7 straight up at home.
Both teams score over 113 points per game but the Raptors allow 111.5 PPG defensively to the 120.1 PPG surrendered by the Wizards. Washington is also without its third-leading scorer and second-leading rebounder in Bryant.
Toronto’s also missing a key piece in Anunoby, but PF Pascal Siakam and C Chris Boucher will be able to exploit mismatches against Washington’s bigs.
Take the OVER 232.5 (-110). The teams have a combined O/U record of 25-20. Toronto, which has a much better defense, has cashed six straight Over tickets.
Washington has played to four straight Unders, but it was held to 105 or fewer points on offense in each of those.
