The Raptors have been red-hot in the second half of January, winning their last 10 games – some of which against elite opponents. Kyle Lowry has been the constant variable for Toronto, leading the team in points and assists during this stretch. Pascal Siakam has also made his return from an 11-game layoff, while Norman Powell has been lighting it up off the bench.

Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (23.8 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 3.4 APG)

Kyle Lowry (19.8 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 7.4 APG)

Fred VanVleet (18.7 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 6.7 APG)

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Pistons have had few good stretches this January, but most of them are bad ones like their current four-game losing skid. In Wednesday’s 125-115 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, Derrick Rose recorded 22 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, while Andre Drummond racked up 12 points and 13 rebounds. The Pistons and the Nets shot 50 percent from the field, but Detroit turned the ball over 16 times.

Players to Watch: Derrick Rose (18.9 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 6.0 APG)

Andre Drummond (17.2 PPG, 15.6 RPG, 2.8 APG)

Reggie Jackson (14.2 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 4.2 APG)
