Raptors -8 – The Orlando Magic have an impressive win against the Knicks and played the Hornets tough on the road-the majority of the game last game. However, a lot of the Hornets game was Fools Gold because Charlotte’s team defense is ranked 23rd in the league. There’s also the fact that even though he was having an off night LaMelo Ball kept jacking up shots and missing. He and Kelly Oubre were a combined 4-21 from the floor and 1-10 from the arc-which was pretty much the reason Charlotte didn’t win by twenty.
The Raptors are a hard team to pin down. But, they’ve played well their last couple of games-playing this new look Bulls team to three points and beating the Pacers by 18 the last time out. A big reason the Raptors have struggled at times is replacing the role of their longtime point guard Kyle Lowry who is now with the Miami Heat. However, Fred VanVleet appears to be settling in averaging over 20 points and 9 assists in Toronto’s last three games. Add that to the fact that the Raptors have the sixth rated defensive efficiency rating in the NBA and that should equate to a double digit Toronto win.
