Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors are gunning for a revenge win following the heartbreaker vs. OKC few weeks ago. Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet scored 20 points each, but Toronto just shot 42.2 percent from the field in that game. Pascal Siakam also played his first game vs. the Spurs after missing 11 games with a groin injury. He scored 15 points on 6-for-17 shooting with five rebounds and four assists.
Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (24.7 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 3.6 APG)
Kyle Lowry (20.6 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 7.8 APG)
Serge Ibaka (15.1 PPG and 8.6 RPG)
Oklahoma City Thunder Betting
The Thunder are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. Second-year guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is playing fantastic basketball as of late. In OKC’s 117-104 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the dynamic youngster recorded 20 points, 20 rebounds and 20 assists for his first triple-double of his career.
Players to Watch: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (19.8 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 2.8 APG)
Dennis Schroder (18.4 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 3.6 APG)
Danilo Gallinari (18.1 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 2.2 APG)

Toronto Raptors vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Picks
The Raptors are 4-6 in their last 10 games, while the Thunder are red-hot with an 8-2 slate. All of a sudden, OKC has revived its playoff hopes despite giving away their superstars in a succession of trades last summer. The Thunder is looking to sweep their regular-season series with the Raptors, but the defending champs are starting to become healthy again with Siakam making his return from a groin injury vs. the Spurs and All-Star center Marc Gasol listed probable for Wednesday’s ballgame. Bet on NBA games now at Betnow.eu to start winning huge money.
Moneyline: Bet on the Raptors at 105. The Thunder might be one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now, but getting back the service of Siakam and Gasol would be huge for the defending champs. Expect a re-acclimated Siakam to have a big night after a pedestrian scoring night in his first game off the injury.
ATS: Pick the Raptors to cover the spread. Toronto is 4-6 ATS in the last 10 games, but then again, they were a mediocre team with Siakam, Gasol and VanVleet all on the sideline.
TOTALs: Bet OVER at 215 points. The Raptors and Thunder combined for just 195 points in their last game. I expect the Raptors to start scoring above 110 points per game moving forward with Siakam back in the line-up.
Score Prediction: 118 – 110 Raptors
