Nets on big skid

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
