The Toronto Raptors looked nigh unbeatable during their first of two games against the rival 76ers, but subsequent road games in Philadelphia and in Boston against the Celtics have failed to yield any wins. At least the latest Raptors odds have them getting some welcome reprieve against a Western Conference foe.
The Rockets might not be in win-now mode just yet, but with the combination of Green and Kevin Porter Jr. on the perimeter and Christian Wood in the paint, Houston is going to have a very fun offense at their disposal, and it could cause some problems for Toronto.
Will the Raptors get back on the right track and head into the season with some momentum? Or will Houston get the victory and condemn Toronto to their third consecutive loss?
Rockets vs Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick
The latest odds from WynnBET have the Raptors as -3.0 favorites against the spread, with Toronto -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. Toronto is -150 on the moneyline, while Houston checks in at +130 (bet $100 to win $130).
The over-under in this contest is 221.5 points, with both the over and under checking in at -110. Las Vegas is expecting these two young offenses to match each other blow for blow in what should be a very evenly matched game.
Toronto Raptors vs Houston Rockets Prediction
The Rockets have their own stale of youth and potential thanks to Green and Alperen Sengun, but Toronto might have that extra little dash of experience and versatility that will come in handy if this game ends up close late.
Players like Green will get their fair share of points, but with Toronto in possession of the deeper roster, they should be able to exploit a shaky Rockets defense to the point where they come out with the victory.
Raptors 116, Rockets 108
