Nuggets at Raptors picks and predictions

Prediction

Raptors 117, Nuggets 113

Moneyline

PASS.

The spread offers marginally more value with the Raptors (-115) than the moneyline, as is so short that we should take advantage of it.

Against the spread

BET RAPTORS -1.5 (-108).

The Raptors have played their best basketball at home this season with a 20-13 record as opposed to their 12-23 road record. This will be their first home game since Feb. 28 and they are coming off 3 days of rest. Expect the energy in Scotiabank Arena to propel the Raptors and for the Nuggets to struggle to create the opportunities they are so accustomed to if Murray is unable to go.

While Toronto has been on a skid of late, it is 3-0 ATS in its last 3 home games and 4-0 ATS in its last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.

Over/Under

BET OVER 224.5 (-112).

The Over is 6-1 in the Nuggets’ last 7 games following a loss and 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing outright record. For the Raptors, the Over is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 in their last 5 overall.

The Over is 23-9-1 in the last 33 meetings between these franchises and 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Toronto.
