Very recently beat washington in washington by 8. Unless Ive.missed something these will be the same teams tomorrow as then - no big names in/out.

Also toronto is playing great at the moment. they are really pushing for that playoff spot... washington on the other hand is playing for nothing.

So why -4.5 at home in toronto? I would have thought somewhere 6 to 8.

Anyonehave some thoughts on this?

Washington are 16-9 ats away, Toronto 16-13 ats home, both average around 95pts last 10 games, I think it will be close, I'm on wiz +4.5 bug will check any line movement tm!

Raptors will win but the line isn't set high cause they simply don't blow out teams. Majority of their games come down to the wire. I'm hesitant to take the spread, but ML I will for sure.

reasonable line to me, and i think it's quite accurate to me. don't take ATS in this spot. take Raptors ML here cause linemakers may see Raptors will win. Wizards are have been terrible in this spot, look at this stat, bro. Wizards lost 9 consecutive game on the road when the total is between 190 and 194.5 points this season, and their SU record in this spot has been just suck 5-21 in their last 3 season. i'm leaning Raptors ML in spite of its low odds. Under can be good, however, total & ATS can be treaky in this spot. maybe Jazz ML & Raptors ML are the best tomorrow. still thinking, though.

Didn't wizards just beat Denver. Then came back won other nite. John wall is playing way better! I thought Denver blows them out and they barley could hang around! I do like raptors but not more then 4.

WAS is playing good basketball lately..
TOR defeated them at home with their two main key players struggling, John Wall 9 pts (1/12 fg) & Nene 7 pts (3/11 fg)..
WAS had slow start which cost them the game.

This match up is still a mystery, may go down to the wire

Wizards are a different monster at home though. Still have to prove it on the road. They did beat a struggling Bucks team (who are still struggling) on the 11th, and prior to that was a road win was against the Blazers on the Jan 21st.

Raptors aren't a team that looks ahead. Their last letdown game against an inferior opponent was against Cleveland and that was prior to the Rudy trade. Since then the home losses were against a strong Memphis team, and a surging Celtics team before that (Rudy's 3rd game.)

I still think 5 is a bit much but I don't see how the ML fails here.

GREAT ANALYSIS.  that's why i'm laying off!!!!!!  history says raps.  but history says bet against washington every game.  so it's really a current analysis pick.  that's why like one of these guys said mind says no body says yes or somethingn to that affect.  wizards are the pick.  i'll sit on the sidelines and watch.

Telfair expected to make Raptor debut tonight. Can you say chemistry killer? Though he probably won't play much they would be better off leaving his behind on the bench. Wizards by three!

Telfair will see next to no action. They've already labelled him the 3rd string behind Lowry/Lucas. No chemistry will be ruined there. Would just have to be the team folding up against the Wiz.
