Toronto is great on both sides of the ball right now. They average 116.4 points per game on offense while shooting 49 percent from the field. Defensively, Toronto is allowing 108 points per game while holding opponents to just 44.3 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 26.1 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game to lead Toronto while Kyle Lowry is adding 14.6 points and 10.1 assists per contest.

Nets on big skid

The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a 114-112 loss at home to Oklahoma City on Wednesday night for their eighth straight loss. Brooklyn is now 8-18 overall, 3-10 at home, 11-15 against the spread and 13-13 with the over/under total. The Nets are just 1-4 ATS in their last five.

Defensively, Brooklyn is allowing 111.1 points per game while opponents are shooting 46.4 percent from the field. The team has been struggling since losing leading scorer Caris LeVert for the season with a gruesome foot injury. He was averaging 18.4 points per game. D’Angelo Russell is now leading the way with 18.0 points and 5.7 assists per game while Spencer Dinwiddie is adding 15.7 points and 4.8 assists per game.

NBA Betting Trends

Toronto

The Raptors are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing on 1 day of rest and 1-4 ATS in their last five following a win.

Brooklyn

The Nets are just 8-20 ATS in their last 28 home games, but 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games against a team with a winning road record.

Prediction:

The Nets haven’t been terribly competitive over recent weeks despite close losses at home this week. Brooklyn doesn’t have the talent to compete with Toronto tonight, even if the Raptors are a step slow. Brooklyn relies too heavily on its guards for offense and that will be a problem against a team that can defend the arc very well. I look for Toronto to roll to a big win tonight.

NBA Prediction: Toronto Raptors -9
