Pascal Siakam is averaging 24.6 points and 7.6 rebounds, while Fred VanVleet is averaging 19.3 points and 4.3 rebounds. Gary Trent Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and O.G.

The Raptors are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 13-6 in Raptors last 19 road games. The under is 6-1-1 in Lakers last 8 overall. The Raptors are 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Los Angeles and 20-6 ATS in the last 26 meetings.

The Toronto Raptors have been inconsistent all season long, and they're just not a team I'm eager to back because of that, especially on the road. I just can't figure out the Raptors and which team is going to show up. The Los Angeles Lakers are finding ways to win, they need to keep winning to get into the playoffs, and AD is playing his best ball of the season. Have to side with the Lakers in this near pick em.
