Raptors win five straight

Defensively, Toronto is giving up 108.5 points per game while holding opponents to 45.3 percent shooting. The Raptors will be without backup guard Fred VanVleet until March due to a thumb injury.

NBA Betting Trends

Washington

The Wizards are 19-40 against the spread in their last 59 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games playing on 1 day of rest.

Toronto

The Raptors are 0-9 against the spread in their last nine games after scoring more than 125 points in their previous game.

Prediction:

The Raptors have won all three meetings with Washington this season, covering the spread in two of the three games. Washington isn’t a team to count on on the road, going just 8-21 against the spread this season. Toronto has been shaky in its own right, and the Raptors always seem to have the potential to rest a top player, but I can’t trust Washington in this situation. The Wizards are on a downward trend and won’t be able to handle the offensive and defensive combo that Toronto has.

NBA Prediction: Toronto Raptors -11
