Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors are going to be in a rebuilding phase and kept a few players from their championship squad. Pascal Siakam will be the cornerstone player but he will be missing out on a few games to start the season. OG Anunoby is still there and will have a veteran role in the team. He will be tasked to give rookie Scottie Barnes the ropes in the NBA and prepare him to blend in with the way the league is run. Fred VanVleet is going to be the go-to scorer at the guard rotation with the departure of Kyle Lowry but he will get some help with veteran player Goran Dragic coming off the bench.

Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards have a new look this season and have kept a few key players from their rotation last year. Bradley Beal will continue to be the focal point in the Wizards’ offense and he will get more help this time around. Scoring guard Spencer Dinwiddie will join him at the backcourt while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope comes off the bench or starts out at the three. Kyle Kuzma is expected to show his potential with the team playing the three and four positions. Thomas Bryant will be out most of the season but there is an upside of playing Darius Gafford at the starting center position and he will switch minutes with Montrezl Harrell.
