Toronto Raptors DFS Spin

Pascal Siakam accounted for 23 points (8-of-23 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 13 rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes Tuesday vs. the Bucks. After getting off to a slow start to begin the season, Siakam appears to be hitting his stride. He sits just outside of the top-50 in 9-cat formats, while falling just inside of that threshold in 8-cat. With Tuesday’s effort, Siakam has now scored 23 points or more in four of Toronto’s last five games. And he has been more efficient during this stretch, shooting 50% or better from the field in three of the five games. Siakam didn’t shoot the ball particularly well Tuesday night, but he made up for it by leading the Raptors in rebounds while also dishing out six assists.

Giannis Antetokounmpo played 37 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Raptors, accumulating 34 points (11-of-20 FGs, 10-of-14 FTs), 10 rebounds, eight assists, five steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers. Antetokounmpo did commit five turnovers on the night, but that isn’t a big deal with taking his full stat line into consideration. Over the last two weeks, the reigning two-time MVP has been a top-5 player in both 8- and 9-cat formats. Due to the slow start Antetokounmpo still isn’t providing first-round value for the season as a whole, but he is trending in the right direction.

The Raptors are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five games playing on only one day of rest, have covered in five of their last seven road games and are 11-5 at the betting window in their last 16 games when listed as a road underdog. On the other side, the Bucks are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 0-4 against the number in their last four games playing on one day of rest and are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight home games when facing an opponent with a losing road record.
