The Toronto Raptors might be a bit beaten up due to injuries, but they did manage to ick off a long homestand by taking down two potential playoff teams in the Wizards and Bucks. The latest Raptors odds have Toronto positioned to take home their third victory in a row against a young team.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and the Oklahoma City Thunder will make the trip to Toronto tonight. While the record might not be anything to write home about, OKC has a star on their roster in Gilgeous-Alexander and one of the best young prospects in the game in Australian Josh Giddey.
While the Thunder have some ugly losses on their record, Nick Nurse and his squad are in no position to overlook opponents as easy victories. OKC has enough weapons to give Toronto a headache if they start hot.
Will the Raptors pick up their third consecutive win against a struggling Thunder team? Will Oklahoma City come up to Canada and pull off the upset?
Oklahoma City Thunder vs Toronto Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under
The latest odds from WynnBET have Toronto as -170 favorites against the spread, with this squad -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. Toronto is -280 on the moneyline, while Oklahoma City checks in as a push at +240 (bet $100 to win $240).
The over-under in this contest is 209.5, with the under coming in at -110 and the over also listed at -110. With both of these teams very young and inconsistent on offense, Vegas isn’t expecting a ton of points tonight.

Toronto Raptors vs Oklahoma City Thunder Prediction
While Toronto shouldn’t expect to beat the Thunder by 73 points as the Grizzlies did, they should go into this game confident that they can pick apart this defense. Like Toronto, OKC can be very inconsistent from game to game.
While this is much easier said than done, taking away Gilgeous-Alexander and forcing one of Oklahoma City’s role players to break out on the offensive end is the best path towards securing victory. If SGA gets into a groove, however, a win may be more difficult to come by.
