Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
The smart money seems to be on the Raptors who have a historic winning streak going on. However, what we learned on Saturday is that the Nets are capable of beating the defending champs sans Kyrie Irving. Spencer Dinwiddie is playing at an All-Star pace, and that’s enough reason why NBA parlay and Moneyline bettors should be concern about the Nets.
Moneyline: Bet on the Raptors -145. Toronto is playing at a high-level right now. Their narrow win against the Nets should serve as lessons for Nick Nurse and his boys to not underestimate Brooklyn even without their stars.
ATS: Pick the Raptors to cover the spread. Toronto is 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 games.
TOTALs: Back the OVER at 220.5 points. The Raptors and the Nets combined for almost 240 points in their last game. Moreover, the OVER is 8-2 in the Raptors’ last 10.
Score Prediction: 117 – 107 Raptors
