Raptors vs. Nets Pick

NBA Predictions: Are Raptors right play for bettors at Nets? 1/8/18

Are the Toronto Raptors going to run past the host Brooklyn Nets when the two squads meet up tonight at 7:30PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Raptors are an 8-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 218 points. Toronto opened as a 6.5-point fave, while the total has gone up from 217.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Monday afternoon, 66 percent of public bets have been placed on the Raptors.

Injury Report: Nets swingman Caris LeVert has missed the last two games with a groin strain, but is expected to play tonight. Demarre Carroll is out tonight with a knee injury. D'Angelo Russell is out until at least mid-January as he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery. Jeremy Lin is out for the reason after rupturing his patellar tendon in the season opener.

Who the Trends Like: Toronto is 4-0 ATS in its last four meetings overall and 4-0 ATS in its last four meetings in Brooklyn. The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.

Who We Like: Toronto is playing great basketball right now, winning four in a row with three of the wins being by nine, 13 and 19 points. The veteran guard combo of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan use their skill sets and guile on a nightly basis to be at the forefront of impressive performances by the Raptors. I believe another one is in store tonight against a team they have owned in recent years.
