The Wizards are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Raptors are 2-13-1 ATS in their last 16 home games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Wizards last 4 overall. The over is 4-1 in Raptors last 5 Sunday games. The Wizards are 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Toronto.

Neither of these teams are playing good basketball as of late, but it's far to say it's the Wizards who have been the better team overall this season. This line is rather confusing. The Toronto Raptors have shown zero consistency this season, and they're losing their five games by an average of 3.8 points, while they also lose at home by an average of 3.8 points. The Wizards have the best player on the floor and have head and shoulders the better offense. Feels like the wrong team is favored here.
