Toronto Raptors have a 44-18 record (34-28 against the spread) and are sitting in the second place of the East. They have back-to-back wins and in their last game they won on the road against the Warriors with a 121-113 score, not beating the odds. Pascal Siakam leads the team in scoring with 23.6 ppg, adding 7.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. Kyle Lowry follows with 19.5 ppg, 4.8 rebounds and a team high 7.7 assists per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Raptors won at home with a 124-120 score. Kings are 14-16 home, while the Raptors are 21-9 on the road. Raptors are better both offensively, scoring 113.1 ppg to Kings’ 108.9 and defensively, allowing 106.7 ppg to Kings’ 110.8. Both teams have a similar field goal percentage (45.9% to 45.8%), while Raptors have a better 3-point percentage (37.1% to 36.6%). Raptors are better both in rebounding (45.2 to 42.4) and in assists made (25.4 to 23.4), while both teams are very close in turnovers committed (14.5 to 14.5). Bookmakers give the Raptors a -5.5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as the hosts will surely force a closer game than that.
