Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Toronto. As of Thursday morning, 79 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Raptors.

Injury Report: Raptors small forward CJ Miles missed the last game with knee soreness and is questionable for tonight. For the Wizards, John Wall is out until late March after undergoing surgery on his knee. Sheldon Mac is out for the season as he recovers from a torn Achilles tendon.

Who the Trends Like: Toronto is 5-2 ATS in its last seven meetings in Washington. the over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Washington, but the over is 7-2 in the last nine meetings overall.

Who We Like: The Wizards have looked strong in their last two games without Wall, winning at Atlanta and home against Oklahoma City. But now they get to face a Raptors team that has also won their last two games, both at home versus the Lakers and Timberwolves. Toronto is a solid 15-11 away from home and will benefit greatly from Washington being without its biggest star. Don't let the last two games fool you, the Wizards are not nearly as good without Wall.
