Toronto has dropped three consecutive games, including a 112-98 setback to the Denver Nuggets as two-point home favorites Sunday, while going OVER the betting total of 202.5. The Raptors are now set to begin a three-game, seven-day Western Conference road trip, which is important to consider when making your NBA betting picks Tuesday night. The franchise has lost its last eight visits to the Bay Area. Toronto is 0-2 SU and 2-0 ATS as road underdogs of 6.5 to 9 points this season.
The Raptors are 3-4 on the road this season despite scoring more points per game than at home, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NBA betting lines. Toronto is led offensively by the play of guard DeMar DeRozan, who ranks 12th in the NBA in scoring 21.6 points per game, including 25.4 over his last seven contests. The team is 1-8 when allowing at least 92 points, which doesn’t bode well against one of the highest scoring teams in the league.
Golden State split its four-game road trip against Western Conference foes, as it comes off a 115-113 victory over the Sacramento Kings as 4.5-point favorites Sunday, while going OVER the total in two consecutive affairs. The Warriors have won 10 of their last 12 games against the Raptors, with point guard Stephen Curry being a main factor in most of those contests, as his career averages of 27.3 points and 8.5 assists in six games versus tonight’s opponent are his best marks against any single foe. Golden State is 10-1 SU and 7-4 ATS as home favorites of 6.5 to 9 points since the 2011-12 campaign, with no edge in terms of the betting total (5-5-1 Over/Under).
The Warriors are coming off a 15-of-25 performance from beyond the arc against the Kings, while they also capitalized on scoring 33 points off 24 turnovers. Seven of Golden State’s 10 wins have come by double-digits, which leads the NBA. It’s still important to point out that the team has allowed the opposition to reach the century mark in six consecutive games after doing so just three times in its first 12.
Sports bettors will likely back the Warriors due to their 8-0 ATS mark at home against the Raptors.
