Washington Wizards Betting

The Washington Wizards may have traded Russell Westbrook to the Los Angeles Lakers but they added three key pieces to surround Bradley Beal. Kyle Kuzma, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and former NBA sixth man of the year Montrezl Harrell join the Wizards to form a strong backbone. Spencer Dinwiddie had been a borderline NBA All-Star and will man the point guard position as the season starts. Thomas Bryant is still expected to miss time with an injury but Darius Gafford has proven to be a good starting center in the NBA. Rui Hachimura and Davis Bertans have also been retained by the team.

Players to watch: B. Beal SG 60 GP 60 GS 35.8 MIN 31.3 PTS 1.2 OR 3.5 DR 4.7 REB 4.4 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.1 TO 2.3 PF 1.4 AST/TO 22.81 PER

Toronto Raptors Betting

The Toronto Raptors have kept a few players from their championship roster moving forward to this season. Fred VanVleet will be the team’s best scoring option at the guard position with the departure of Kyle Lowry to the Miami Heat for Goran Dragic. Pascal Siakam has been the Raptors’ replacement to Kawhi Leonard but has been unhealthy so far. OG Anunoby is still with the team and he is expected to move to the bench as rookie Scottie Barnes gets more used to playing in the NBA. Chris Boucher was last year’s starting center and will step back and give that spot to Khem Birch.

Players to Watch: P. Siakam PF 56 GP 56 GS 35.8 MIN 21.4 PTS 1.7 OR 5.5 DR 7.2 REB 4.5 AST 1.1 STL 0.7 BLK 2.3 TO 3.1 PF 1.9 AST/TO 17.77 PER
