Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors – 2/26/16 NBA Picks and Predictions

The Toronto Raptors find themselves as a home underdog against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at 7:30PM ET. Is that a good thing for Toronto?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Cavaliers are the slight favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -1.5 points in Toronto. The over/under total for the game has been set at 208.5 points.

Toronto is 38-18 overall, 20-6 at home and 31-25 against the spread. Cleveland is 41-15 overall, 17-10 on the road and 25-28-3 against the spread. The home team has won and covered the spread in both meetings this season, including the Raptors winning as a 3-point home underdog on Nov. 25. These two have also hit the over in four straight meetings.

What does the public think about this game?

Toronto isn’t getting much respect on the national stage, as they are just a few games behind the Cavs in the standings, but a home underdog tonight. Toronto is riding a three-game winning streak coming into tonight while the Cavs have won six of their last seven. However, Toronto should definitely be up for this game. This can be a statement game for the Raptors and they are a perfect 3-0 against the spread this season as a home underdog. They are also 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a winning record on the road. If Toronto is going to make a run at the No. 1 seed, they need this win tonight.
