Toronto Raptors vs Los Angeles Clippers 11/11/2019 – The Toronto Raptors (7-2) pulled off a big surprise on Sunday after toppling the previously red-hot Los Angeles Lakers without starting point guard Kyle Lowry and veteran shot-blocker Serge Ibaka. Now, Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and the rest of the championship-winning Raptors will gun for a double L.A celebration as they aim for another giant win over former teammate Kawhi Leonard and the NBA Moneyline favorites Los Angeles Clippers (6-3).

Toronto Raptors Betting
The Raptors put an end on the Lakers’ seven-game winning run on Sunday, as Pascal Siakam poured in 24 points and Fred VanVleet recorded 23 points and 10 rebounds to lead Toronto to a convincing 113-104 win at Staples Center. Kyle Lowry, the team’s second-leading scorer at 21.8 PPG, is expected to miss at least two weeks with a fractured left thumb. Serge Ibaka is listed out for indefinite time due to an injured ankle.
Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (27.4 PPG, 9.4 RPG, 3.7 APG), Fred VanVleet (16.0 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 7.7 APG), OG Anunoby (13.0 PPG and 6.2 APG)
Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Los Angeles Clippers are just fresh from a hard-earned 107-101 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Kawhi Leonard, who sat out the previous game against the Milwaukee Bucks for load management, recorded 18 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter to lead the final charge for L.A. The title of the closer though belongs to three-time Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams, who hit three-point dagger to put the Blazers at bay for good.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (29.0 PPG, 8.1 RPG, 5.4 APG), Lou Williams (22.4 PPG and 5.8 APG), Montrezl Harrell (20.5 PPG and 6.7 RPG)

Toronto Raptors vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Picks
To everyone’s surprise, the Raptors are coming in as double-digit NBA Moneyline underdogs despite their big win over the Lakers. The absence of All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry will be felt more when they go against the Clippers, who thrive by putting pressure on the opponents’ primary ball-handler.
Moneyline: The Clippers will fend off the Raptors to improve their record to 7-3. Toronto’s stunning win over the Lakers should make Doc Rivers and his coaching staff more cautious in drawing up the perfect game plan for the visitors.
ATS: The Raptors will improve their ATS record to 7-3, courtesy of +10.5 NBA winning margin.
TOTALs: This game will go under the NBA over/under totals of 222.5 points. It’s going to be a frantic first half for both teams, though I am expecting a much slower offense in the final half especially when the defense is starting to tighten up.
Score Prediction: 103-95 Clippers
