The Toronto Raptors had some difficult matchups on the schedule during their West Coast road trip, but the likes of Pascal Siakam and Precious Achiuwa stepped up to help them reel off five consecutive wins. The latest Raptors odds have them positioned to snatch up their sixth straight victory.

For the second time this week, Toronto must contend with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. While the Lakers didn’t technically get blown out in LA, the fact that Toronto took a 24-point lead in the first quarter shows how dominant they were early on.

With the Cavaliers slipping, Toronto is going to need to pick up every win they can get. Doing so would help Nick Nurse and the squad get to the No. 6 seed in the conference and avoid getting stuck in a play-in against the rival Nets.

Will Toronto be able to once again take down James and the Lakers? Will LA pull off a road upset that finally brings an end to Toronto’s winning streak in Canada?

Toronto Raptors vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction

The Lakers might technically be in a playoff spot at the moment, but it’s so obvious that they are just counting down the days until this season is over. Considering all of the reasons to come into this game without tons of motivation, it’s fair to say that Toronto will likely have more effort.

Assuming that Toronto’s ability to create havoc on the defensive end once again helps them get out to an early lead, the Raptors should be able to eventually grind out a win. If James ends up sitting out, the odds of victory are only going to get better.
