The Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors meet Sunday in NBA action at the Scotiabank Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Washington Wizards are averaging 112.8 points on 48.5 percent shooting and allowing 113.6 points on 47 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 23.3 points and 3.9 rebounds, while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 22.8 points and 2.6 assists. Kyle Kuzma is the third double-digit scorer, and Monte Morris is grabbing 3.5 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.1 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Wizards are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.6 rebounds per game.

The Toronto Raptors are averaging 112.9 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 112.1 points on 49.2 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 24.1 points and 7.8 rebounds, while Fred VanVleet is averaging 19.6 points and 4.2 rebounds. Gary Trent Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and O.G. Anunoby is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 37.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.9 rebounds per game.

The Wizards are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Raptors are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 15-7 in Wizards last 22 road games. The over is 8-3 in Raptors last 11 overall. The Wizards are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Washington Wizards look like a team that's run out of gas as the losses are piling up, they're not playing a lick of defense, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 9.8 points. The Toronto Raptors are winning their last 5 games by an average of 8.4 points, and they need to keep winning to position themselves better for the playoffs or play-in tournament. The line is reasonable. Give me the Raptors.
