Detroit Pistons vs Toronto Raptors Betting Picks
The Raptors are 6-4 in the last 10 head-to-head games with the Pistons, averaging 100.90 PPG on 44.52% FG while limiting their foes to just 105.90 PPG. One important stat though is Casey’s Detroit actually beat Toronto in three of their four meetings last season.
Moneyline: The Raptors opened at -357 favorites, buoyed by their two straight victories. With the Pistons still expected to miss Blake Griffin, Toronto should be a safe NBA betting pick to win.
ATS: Despite a winning record in the last 10, the -8.5 Raptors are just 3-6-1 ATS vs. the Pistons. Again, Casey’s presence in the Pistons bench is a big reason why this team is just playing so well against the defending champs. I expect that trend to continue on Wednesday, with Detroit covering the spread.
TOTALs: The highest O/U total is set at 214.5 points. The Pistons are averaging 110.00 PPG, while the Raptors are scoring 114.67 PPG. This game should have no problem going over. Pick: Over 214.5
Score Prediction: 116-109 Raptors
