Lay Points with Warriors vs Raptors

Right now, the Toronto Raptors look like a team that could have an upside in NBA playoff odds, but they will definitely have to make it through the Play-In round. Similarly, the Golden State Warriors have a good chance of making it into the playoffs, but they too will likely have to take the route of the Play-In.

The Warriors made quick work of the New York Knicks in their last game, winning 110-99 in the first of a road back-to-back. The Raptors were home for their last game and saw a three-game winning streak end at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks 136-125.

Warriors vs Raptors ATS Pick: Warriors -3½

Coming off a back-to-back, this does seem like a game that a team filled with veterans like the Warriors could lose. However, this version of the Warriors does seem to be starting the transition process into giving some of the younger players more opportunities, which could still make them a reliable option for NBA picks.

Jonathan Kuminga and rookie Brandin Podziemski have cemented themselves into the starting lineup. Both players have averaged 30 minutes over the last 15 games, which has helped the Warriors to a 12-3 record.

On top of that, the Warriors are getting a guiding force back off the bench. Chris Paul returned against the Washington Wizards after missing seven weeks with nine points, six assists and four steals.

At the moment, it seems like the Warriors’ NBA odds are improving, with the team starting to find a rhythm. Even with Andrew Wiggins away from the team again, there is still more than enough to keep this success going.

 

Warriors vs Raptors Over/Under Pick: Under 237

Even though the Warriors have started to find a rhythm and win games, they have recently struggled to hit the over. They have hit the under in eight of the last 10 games, which seems to lean NBA lines to that happening against the Raptors.

Since moving on from a lot of their veteran players at the trade deadline, Toronto’s offense has been put in the hands of Scottie Barnes and RJ Barrett, and both playing very well. However, neither is exactly consistent and, facing a team like the Warriors, there is a good chance they could struggle.

 

Warriors vs Raptors Player Prop Pick: Scottie Barnes Over 8.5 rebounds (-115)

This has been a breakout season for Barnes, earning his first All-Star nod. Barnes’s overall play has improved and his stats have increased compared to the first two seasons in the league. Rebounding has been a big part of that, especially since the trade deadline. Since Feb. 9, which is eight games, Barnes is averaging 10.1 rebounds.
