Wizards at Raptors: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Wizards 122, Raptors 118

Money line (ML)

The injury reports loom large over this one, but the early lean is to the WIZARDS (+165) as road underdogs.

Both teams are in the top half of the league in opponent points in the paint allowed over their last 10 games; however, Washington leads the NBA with 57.4 points in the paint per game on offense over its last 10 games and Toronto is just 27th (41.0).

The line seems to be leaning far too heavily into the Raptors’ 53-point beatdown of the Warriors. Golden State was without PG Stephen Curry and shot just 33% from the floor as a team while Toronto went 53% from the field and 43% from 3-point range.

Against the spread (ATS)

Get the insurance and back the WIZARDS +4.5 (-110) to stay within 5 points in a loss if they come up short of the outright upset.

Toronto covered the spread by 16.5 points in the season’s first head-to-head clash but that was with recently-traded SG Norman Powell scoring a team-high 28 points.

Wizards PG Russell Westbrook will have his way against the undermanned Raptors’ backcourt and figures to be the best player in this game if both Beal and VanVleet are forced to sit.

Over/Under (O/U)

Bet the OVER 228.5 (-110).

The Raptors scored a five-game high of 130 points Friday and that was without Lowry and with VanVleet going just 2-for-5 from the floor in 18:36 of playing time.

Even if Beal sits, the Wiz should be able to get their points against a Raptors team ranked 19th by defensive rating over their last 10 games.
