Raptors vs. Spurs Prediction & Pick
It's safe to say the Spurs are not playing their best basketball right now. They have posted an average scoring margin of -16.6 during their nine-game losing streak and haven't found any success on either end of the court. That has to excite a Raptors team that is 5-1 in its last six games against the Spurs.
Toronto holds an edge in almost every statistical category here, but the most noteworthy one is on the boards. The Raptors have posted the fourth-best offensive rebounding percentage in the NBA (27.8%), while the Spurs have allowed an offensive rebounding percentage of 25.3% (No. 24 in NBA).
Look for the Raptors to run up the score in a blowout win thanks to a ton of second-chance buckets.
Final Score Prediction: Raptors: 126 | Spurs: 109
Raptors vs. Spurs Best Bet
There isn't much explaining to do with this one. San Antonio is 0-9 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games overall and 1-5 ATS in its last six games against Toronto. On the other side, the Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games and beat the Spurs by a score of 143-100 in November.
Seven different Toronto players scored in double-digits in that game as the team shot 53.8% from the floor. This game may not reach that area of blowout territory, but it shouldn't be too close. After all, the Spurs own the worst average second half scoring margin in the NBA (-4.5). Toronto will pull away.
Bet: Toronto Raptors -11 (-110)
