The Toronto Raptors did not let the Rockets go back to Houston with some positivity or momentum, as the likes of OG Anunoby beat the stuffing out of them in a wire-to-wire victory that moved them to 2-2 in the preseason. The latest Raptors odds, however, aren’t too keen on them winning two in a row.
Toronto will end their preseason schedule against Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards, the same team that they will open their regular season against. Wes Unseld Jr. and the Wiz are 0-2 in the preseason, including a loss against the Rockets.
While it remains unclear who will suit up in this game given the fact that we’re nearing the end of the exhibition schedule, Washington does have much more depth than it did last year, and that could be enough to give Toronto a real challenge in this game.
Will the Raptors win their second game in as many days and end the preseason on a high note? Or will the Wizards steal a preseason win before their debut in the regular season?
Raptors vs Wizards Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick
The latest odds from WynnBET have the Wizards as -4.0 favorites against the spread, with Washington -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. The Wizards are -185 on the moneyline, while Toronto clocks in at +155 (bet $100 to win $130).
The over-under in this contest is 224.5 points, with both the over and under checking in at -110. While both of these teams are young, and Washington had one of the worst defenses in the league last year, Toronto is playing their third game in four days, and that could lead to some fatigue on their end.
Toronto Raptors vs Washington Wizards Prediction
The Raptors are resting some of their big names, will likely lean on some non-guaranteed players, and are coming off of a very emotional win the night before. All of that, plus the fact they are on the road, could lead to a loss
However, Washington is not completely sorted out on the defensive side of the ball, and if some of the young players continue their hot starts, that should be more than enough to help Toronto snatch a close victory.
