The Raptors are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Raptors last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 8-3 in Trail Blazers last 11 overall. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
I'd wait to see if Lillard plays before locking in a bet, but the Trail Blazers should have the edge regardless at home, where they win by an average of 14 points. The Toronto Raptors have injuries of their own, and they're losing their last five games by an average of six points. The Portland Trail Blazers are a completely different team at home than they are on the road, and the Raptors are rough offensively. Give me the Trail Blazers in this toss up.
