Spurs at Raptors picks and predictions
Spurs 120, Raptors 119
Sprinkle on SPURS (+410).
San Antonio has lost 9 straight, but the Raptors are also in a bad spot. For the 1st time in franchise history, Toronto won a majority of its games on a road trip of 7 or more days and returns home to face a lot of speculation surrounding the trade deadline. The Raptors struggled for 3 quarters at Memphis and were somewhat lucky that the Grizzlies fell apart late. A Spurs win isn’t probable, but it is more likely than the line suggests.
Against the spread
BET SPURS +10.5 (-108).
The Raptors are laying too many points for a team that has consistently performed below expectation when returning from long road trips. In addition, Toronto may lack focus Wednesday playing a team that it beat by 43 points in the last meeting.
San Antonio showed signs of life at Chicago and even held a 4-point lead late in the 3rd quarter before collapsing. Look for the Spurs to come out extra motivated to end their losing streak and for former Raptors C Jakob Poeltl to have a big game.
BET OVER 232.5 (-108).
The Over is 10-2 in Toronto’s last 12 games after covering in its previous contest and 5-1 in the Raptors’ last 6 home games vs. teams with a road winning percentage under .400. The Over has hit in 4 of the last 5 meetings and Wednesday’s matchup should be another offensive showcase.
