Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Toronto. As of Friday afternoon, 62 percent of public bets have sided with the host Raptors.

Injury Report: Trail Blazers center Meyers Leonard missed the last game with back stiffness, but is expected to be available tonight. Jusuf Nurkic has a quadriceps contusion, but is expected to play tonight. Maurice Harkless has lower back soreness and is questionable for tonight. CJ Wilcox is out indefinitely as he rehabs a knee injury. For the Raptors, CJ Miles has missed the last two games with knee soreness and is questionable tonight. Fred VanVleet missed the last game due to personal issues and it is unknown whether he will be available to play tonight.

Who the Trends Like: Portland is 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings in Toronto and 12-5 ATS in the last 17 meetings overall. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Toronto.

Who We Like: As good as Toronto is and especially at home with a 19-4 straight up record, we can't ignore the Raptors being on a back-to-back after a fast-paced game with Washington. Portland is no slouch, either. The Trail Blazers wrecked Chicago by a count of 124-108 their last game, dominating the first quarter before putting on cruise control the rest of the way. CJ McCollum scored a career-high 50 points in the game. That won't be duplicated by him tonight, but expect more out of Damian Lillard as the two show they are a deadly combo who can go toe-to-toe with the talented Toronto backcourt of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan.
