Spread: Toronto Raptors -10
Toronto Raptors have a 41-16 record (26-31 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the second place of the East. They have won five of their last six matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Knicks with a 104-99 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Kawhi Leonard with 26.9 ppg, adding a team high 7.8 boards per game. He is followed by Serge Ibaka with 16 ppg and 7.8 boards per game.
Brooklyn Nets have a 29-28 record (31-26 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 6th place of the East. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Bulls with a 106-125 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by D’Angelo Russell with 19.8 ppg, adding a team high 6.5 dimes per game. He is followed by Caris LeVert with 17.9 ppg, 4.1 boards and 3.7 dimes per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once at home (Raptors by 17 points and Nets by one in overtime). Raptors have a 22-5 home record, while the Nets are 12-15 on the road. Raptors are better both offensively, scoring 113.8 ppg to Nets’ 111,5 and defensively, allowing 108.2 ppg to Nets’ 112 ppg. Raptors have a better field goal percentage (46.8% to 45%), while Nets have a better 3-point percentage (35.5% to 34.6%). Raptors are better both in dimes made (24.4 to 23.7) and in turnovers committed (13.1 to 14.5), while Nets are better in boards grabbed (46.1 to 45.2). Raptors are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -10 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
