The Toronto Raptors look for a nice East victory after splitting their eight games.

DeMar DeRozan is averaging 20.9 points and 4.2 assists while Kyle Lowry is averaging 20.1 points and 6.5 assists. DeMarre Carroll is grabbing 4.9 rebounds and Cory Joseph is dishing 3.1 assists. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 34.7 percent from deep and are getting 75.7 points from their starting unit. Ten of the Raptors last 12 games took place on the road.

The Cavaliers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference. The Raptors are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Cavaliers are 18-6 ATS in the last 24 meetings in Toronto and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Cavs are winning, but they're not exactly blowing teams out like you would expect from the most talented team in the East. Meanwhile, the Raptors have been on the road forever and were able to hold their own against solid comp. I like the Raptors here.
