The Toronto Raptors have won their last three both straight up and Against The Spread. All three were on the road, and the trip concludes in Orlando. The Raptors are in first-place in the Atlantic, four and a half games in front of the second place New York Knicks. Head Coach Dwane Casey’s team has four days off after their game at Orlando. Toronto will host Brooklyn on January 18th. Toronto is playing magnificent of the defensive end of the basketball court. The addition of specialist DeMarre Carroll was an impressive offseason acquisition. Offensively the Raptors still has the firepower to compete with any team in the NBA. Starting point guard, Kyle Lowry leads the team in assists and steals. Star DeMar DeRozan is tops on the team scoring the basketball. Center Jonas Valanciunas and his backup Bismack Biyombo are a force in the post. The key to a Toronto win is to get up and down the court, not allowing Orlando to set their defense.
The 2016 Orlando Magic have dropped five of their last six basketball games. Orlando is third in their Division, three games out of first-place. Orlando recently acquired guard Joe Harris from the Cleveland Cavaliers. The former University of Virginia alumni got lost in the Cavaliers rotation and was eating up “CAP SPACE”. Orlando has a balance of offense and defense, scoring 98.9 points per game and allowing opponents 98.6 ppg. Point Guard Elfrid Payton is the team leader in assists and steals. Center Nikola Vucevic is scoring a team-best 17.1 points per contest and grabs 8.3 rebounds. Orlando is bonding as a team on this trip across the Ocean. The Magic are enjoying the trip to the United Kingdom and should come back with a new perspective.
Toronto is 0-5 Against The Point Spread their last five on Thursdays.
Orlando is 1-6 ATS their last seven overall.
