The Warriors are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 6-21-1 ATS in their last 28 games playing on 0 days rest. The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Warriors last 8 overall. The over is 5-2 in Raptors last 7 home games. The over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Toronto and 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.

The Toronto Raptors aren't a team I'm running to the window to back given their current form and with Lowry out, but they've been more competitive lately and are losing their last five games by an average of just 1.8 points. The Golden State Warriors are on the end of a back to back and are losing their last five games by an average of 8.4 points. The Raptors aren't good, but this is a lot of points to pass up against these Warriors with the rest advantage. Give me the points.
