The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors meet Monday in the NBA action at the Scotiabank Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Nets vs Raptors prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been in a major slump as they've lost eight of their last nine games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a six-game slide after getting beaten by the Knicks in a 105-93 road defeat on Saturday. Cam Thomas led the team with 19 points and six assists, Mikal Bridges added 18 points with five assists while Cameron Johnson chipped in with 13 points but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Nets shot 44 percent from the field and 12 of 34 from the 3-point line as they got off to a solid start and led for a majority of the first half, but they couldn't maintain that momentum, scoring just 36 points in the second half to suffer yet another disappointing double digit loss on the road.

Toronto Raptors

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been ice-cold lately as they've lost 12 of their last 13 games overall and they will be hoping to put a halt to a 10-game losing streak after falling just short to the lowly Wizards in a 112-109 road defeat on Saturday. Gary Trent Jr led the team with 31 points, Gradey Dick added 17 points while Kelly Olynyk chipped in with 14 points, six rebounds and 10 assists. As a team, the Raptors shot just 42 percent from the field and eight of 33 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to take the lead with just 3:34 left in the fourth quarter, only to allow the Wizards to go on a pivotal 10-2 run to pull away and send the Raptors to their ninth straight loss overall.

  • The Nets rank 30th in the league for opponent free throw percentage this season (80.9%).
  • The Nets rank 27th in the league for field goal percentage this season (45.7%).

Nets vs Raptors prediction

The Nets are still missing a bunch of players including Dennis Smith Jr, Cameron Johnson and Ben Simmons, while the Raptors are still going to be without Scottie Barnes, Jakob Poeltl and RJ Barrett. You really couldn't back either side with any confidence these days as the Nets have won just one of their last nine games, while the Raptors have been in even worse form with just one win in their past 13 games. There is so little for either team to play for at this stage of the season, but the Raptors still represent decent value as the home underdog in this one, so that's where I'm leaning in this spot.
