For the third time in just 24 games, the Toronto Raptors will face off against Bradley Beal and the Washington Wizards. Nick Nurse and the squad might be fresh off of an upset win against the Bucks, but the most recent Raptors odds seem to suggest another loss in the cards for this team.
While Washington limited Toronto to just a pitiful 83 points in the season opener, a free VanVleet masterclass helped the Raptors take Wes Unseld Jr. down on the road without Scottie Barnes. Toronto is capable of beating this team.
However, Toronto is lacking in depth at the moment, and part of the reason Washington has turned things around so quickly has been their phenomenal depth at key positions. They could lean on that to overwhelm Toronto and take home a win.
Will the Wizards leave Canada with a second win? Will the Raptors manage to once again defeat one of the most surprising teams in the entire Eastern Conference?

Toronto Raptors vs Washington Wizards Prediction
The Wizards might be as consistent or dominant as they were at the beginning of the season, but they are still a quality squad that will likely end up in the postseason picture. Without Anunoby, keeping pace with them may prove difficult.
Toronto has been very uneven on offense without Anunoby, and considering Washington’s elite perimeter defense, beating this team twice in a three-game set is looking unlikely. Washington is not favored here, but the moneyline could be a very sneaky play.
Wizards 108, Raptors 100
