NBA Betting Trends

Toronto

The Raptors are 0-4 ATS in their last four games versus an opponent with a winning percentage below .400. Toronto is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings.

Washington

The over is 6-1 in the last seven Wizards games following an ATS loss. Washington is 4-12 ATS in its last 16 games after scoring 100 or more points the previous game.

Prediction:

This is a back-to-back with travel for Toronto, so as impressive as it has looked the first two games at home this could be an entirely different story on the road. Washington is going to look for a better effort than it gave in the opener and had yesterday to prepare for this game. Look for the Wizards to take over late and secure a win.
