With Steph Curry out for an extended period for the Warriors, they’ll find the going tough when they head to Toronto.

Best Bet

Warriors @ Raptors (10:10am)

Raptors -5.5

The Raptors haven’t been great winning just two of their last nine games, but after two tight losses on their home court against the Kings and Nets, they’re due when they host the Warriors.

No Steph Curry is a game changer for this Golden State team, who already has been extremely poor on the road this season. They have a league worst record of 2-14 away from home, along with the worst road coverage rate at just 18.8%.

Despite Toronto’s recent horror stretch, they still own a 63.6% coverage rate when at home as favourite this season, and with Fred VanVleet back in form they should do a number on the Warriors.

Next Best

Hornets @ Nuggets (12:10pm)

Nuggets -8.5

The Nuggets were terrible in their loss to the Lakers minus AD, but they should bounce back at home against a very weak Charlotte Hornets outfit.

Denver is 6-1 at home against opposition with a record below .500, covering in five of those with an average differential of 12.6 points.

With Charlotte owning the fourth worst road average points differential in the NBA at -8.3 from 14 games, expect the Nuggets to bounce back with a big win.

Value Bet

Magic @ Celtics (7:10am)

Celtics / Over 222.5 Points

It will be interesting to see how Boston respond after being outplayed on their home court by the Orlando Magic last start.

With Jayson Tatum out in this contest we could see the total points take a slight hit, but this will still be going overs.

From Boston’s 14 home games this season, only one has gone under 222.5 total points and with the total points averaging 236 against the Magic across two games this season, expect the Celtics to ramp up the offensive end in a big response.
