811 Toronto Raptors vs. 812 Washington Wizards, 8PM ET

Bet NBA Action For Friday, March 2, 2018


Toronto opened at the same -4 spread that it is at now, while the total has dropped a couple points after opening at 219. While the 4-point spread seems to be the standard at most books, the total can be found as low as 216.5 at certain books.


As of Friday afternoon, 67 percent of public bets are siding with the visiting Raptors. Online wager info also shows that 74 percent of bets are coming in on the over.


Raptors forward OG Aunonoby left the last game with a sprained ankle and is questionable tonight. For the Wizards, forward Otto Porter Jr. is nursing a knee injury but is expected to play tonight. Center Jason Smith is out indefinitely with an illness.


Washington has gone 2-1 against Toronto this season, including a 122-119 home win on Feb. 1 in the last meeting. Toronto is 7-3 straight up in the last 10 meetings, while the matchups have gone 5-5 ATS. Toronto comes in having won nine of its last 10 games, the lone loss being a 122-119 overtime setback at home versus the Bucks on Feb. 23. The Wizards had a two-game win streak snapped with a 109-101 home loss to the Warriors their last contest. Washington has played well in the absence of star point guard John Wall and often seem to step up its game versus top-tier opponents. Expect a fantastic showing by the Wizards tonight and as long as Porter Jr. plays, I like their chances at an upset.
