The Toronto Raptors have racked up six straight wins and that can be attributed to their starters finally playing healthy after rough November and December campaigns. Norman Powell has also been playing the best stretch of his career, recording at least 20 points in five straight games. He also contributed 18 and 16 points in the Raptors’ wins against the Sixers and the Knicks.

The Spurs are making moves in the Western Conference standings after a rough start this season. San Antonio just scored three consecutive wins at the expense of Miami, Phoenix and New Orleans before falling to the Suns in a 103-99 stinker last Friday. DeMar DeRozan is upping his game as of late. He scored 30 points in a losing effort against the Suns.

Toronto Raptors vs San Antonio Spurs Betting Picks
The Raptors are a sizzling 8-2 in their last 10 games; the Spurs are a decent 6-4 over that stretch. Toronto dropped a close game vs. San Antonio, 105-104, last January 12 before the start of their current streak. Major online sportsbooks are picking the Raptors to win, but a three-point spread just shows to you how much respect the oddsmakers have on the Spurs.
Moneyline: Pick the Raptors at -140. They are finally healthy and playing winning basketball. Watch out for Norman Powell to be the difference-maker again in this match.
ATS: Back the Raptors to cover the 3-point spread. Toronto knows how to step on the gas and pull away in the final minutes of the game. That’s why I am expecting this team to win by more than five points.
TOTALs: Bet on the UNDER at 223.5 points. The Raptors and the Spurs combined for 209 points in their last game. I am anticipating this match to follow the pace of the first game, but this time Toronto will end up on top.
Score Prediction: 108 – 102 Raptors
