The Toronto Raptors have earned some hard-fought wins against some of the best teams in the league, but they have had an issue with regards to playing down to some of their opponents. The latest Raptors odds think that Toronto will finally overcome one of their most irritating Eastern Conference foes.

Former head coach Dwane Casey and the Detroit Pistons make up one of the worst franchises in the sport at the moment, as they are in contention for the No. 1 pick once again. However, they have had tons of success against the Raptors, convincingly winning both games against them so far.

The Pistons have Cade Cunningham and Jerami Grant ready and waiting, meaning that Toronto will be in for a very tough defensive battle if they try to stop those two. Given Toronto’s injuries and struggles against Detroit in the past, a win can’t necessarily be expected here.

Will Nick Nurse make it three wins in a row as they finally overcome their Pistons curse? Will Detroit continue to annoy and irritate Toronto as they somehow win their third game this year against them?

Detroit Pistons vs Toronto Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under

The latest odds from WynnBET have Toronto as -8.5 favorites against the spread, with this squad -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. Toronto is -400 on the moneyline, while Detroit checks at +310 (bet $100 to win $310).

The over-under in this contest is 217, with the under coming in at -110 and the over listed at -110. The Pistons still have a defense that can be exposed, and it’s up to Toronto to make sure they take advantage of it.

Toronto Raptors vs Detroit Pistons Prediction

The Pistons have some extra motivation whenever they have to play against Toronto, and that could be enough to take down the Raptors. After all, Toronto is playing hurt and was on the wrong end of consecutive blowouts before they took on the rival Nets.

However, some might find it hard to believe that the Raptors will lose three straight games against a bottom feeder like Detroit. If Scottie Barnes stays hot and Pascal Siakam figures out why he’s been so sluggish in the second half, Toronto might win.
