Raptors win on the road again

Toronto is coming off a 118-113 win at Sacramento last night for a third straight win on this West Coast road trip. The Raptors are 45-18 on the season, 22-9 on the road, 34-28-1 against the spread and 34-28-1 with the over.

The Raptors are putting up 113.2 points per game on offense while shooting 45.9 percent from the field. Defensively, Toronto is giving up 106.8 points per game while holding opponents to just 42.9 percent shooting from the field and 33.7 percent from the arc. Pascal Siakam is leading the team with 23.6 points, 7.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. Kyle Lowry is adding 19.7 points, 7.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game. Fred VanVleet, who averages 17.6 points and 6.6 assists per game, is out with a shoulder injury.

Jazz keep rolling

Utah is coming off a 111-105 win at Detroit on Saturday night for a fifth straight victory. The Jazz are 41-22 on the season, 21-9 at home, 30-31-2 against the spread and 33-30 with the over.

The Jazz are giving up just 108 points per game on defense this season while holding opponents to 45.2 percent shooting. Offensively, Utah is putting up 111.3 points per game while shooting 47.6 percent from the field. Donovan Mitchell is leading the Jazz this season with 24.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game. Bojan Bogdanovic is adding 20.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per contest. Rudy Gobert is also averaging 15.2 points and 13.9 rebounds per game.

NBA Betting Trends

Toronto

The Raptors are 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five road games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six overall.

Utah

The Jazz are 2-12-2 against the spread in their last 16 games as a favorite and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five home games.

Prediction:

Toronto dominated Utah at home back in December, but the Raptors are coming off a hard-fought game in Sacramento last night and now have a physical battle with Utah set to take place. The Jazz are returning home for a four-game trip out East. I think that should give them a little pep in their step. Utah is a defensive team that defends the arc well while shooting quite well from the outside on offense. I expect them to grind out this win and cover at home against a tired Toronto squad.

NBA Prediction: Utah Jazz -4
