According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Raptors are a 6.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 200 points.

Toronto enters with a 15-7 overall record and 12-10-0 ATS after a 126-113 home win over the Suns, its fourth straight victory. Memphis is 8-16 overall and 8-15-1 ATS following a 99-88 loss at the Knicks. The Raptors went 1-1 straight up and 2-0 ATS in two meetings last season. The over-under went 1-1.

In the win over Phoenix, Kyle Lowry led the way with 20 points along with 10 assists, six rebounds and two steals. DeMar DeRozan contributed 20 points, eight assists, seven boards and three steals. Serge Ibaka added 19 points, six rebounds and three blocked shots. Toronto led 97-79 through three quarters.

Mario Chalmers added 14 points, two assists and two steals off the bench. Memphis was outscored a combined 53-35 in the second and third quarters.

Toronto is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Memphis.

Bet on Raptors vs. Grizzlies

Toronto is playing really good basketball right now, led as usual by Lowry and DeRozan. But this spread seems a bit too high on the road. Yes, the Grizzlies are struggling but they are also always well-prepared and have posted five of their eight victories at home. Expect the Grizzlies to bounce back from a poor performance at the Knicks to cover the spread tonight.
