Raptors at Wizards picks and predictions
Wizards 111, Raptors 105
BET WIZARDS (+110).
Toronto is not a great road team this season and is just 4-6 straight up as an away favorite. Washington is 9-7 at home this season when Beal plays and should be feeling confident after an impressive underdog win at the Atlanta Hawks last time out. The Raptors played well vs. Washington last season, but have yet to face the new-look Wizards with F Kristaps Porziņģis in the lineup.
The Wizards +2.5 (-115) should cover, but there is no need to take the points when Washington should win straight up. Bet the moneyline and/or total instead.
BET UNDER 222.5 (-110).
The Under is 4-0 in Toronto’s last 4 games and 4-1 in the Raptors’ last 5 vs. teams with a losing record. The Under has hit in the last 4 meetings between these teams and is 4-0 in Washington’s last 4 games after scoring 100 or more points in its previous contest.
