The Toronto Raptors aren't a team I'm running to the window to back in the favorite role, but the Pistons are just god awful, and playing on the end of a back to back doesn't help. I just can't get behind the Pistons regardless of the line, a team that's downright terrible offensively and doesn't cover numbers despite being underdogs daily. It's Raptors or pass for me.
