Spread: Toronto Raptors -11
Toronto Raptors have a 42-16 record (26-32 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the second place of the East. They have won six of their last seven matches and in their last game they won at home against the Nets with a 127-125 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Kawhi Leonard with 27 ppg, adding a team high 7.7 boards per game. He is followed by Serge Ibaka with 16.1 ppg and 7.9 boards per game.
Washington Wizards have a 24-33 record (25-32 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the East. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Pistons with a 112-121 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 25.1 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.3 dimes per game. He is followed by newcomer Bobby Portis with 21.3 ppg, adding 7.7 boards per game.
Raptors have won all three previous meetings against the Wizards this season, winning the only home game by 18 points. Raptors have a 23-5 home record, while the Wizards are 7-22 on the road. Raptors are better both offensively, scoring 114.1 ppg to Wizards’ 113.8 ppg and defensively, allowing 108.5 ppg to Wizards’ 116.7. Both teams have very similar percentages both in field goals (47% each) and in 3-pointers (34.8% to 34.5%). Raptors are better both in boards grabbed (45.1 to 40.8) and in turnovers committed (13.1 to 13.6), while Wizards are better in dimes made (26.6 to 24.5). Raptors are the absolute favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -11 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy win today.
