The Line: Toronto Raptors +5.5 -- Over/Under: 220 See the Latest Odds
The Golden State Warriors travel to the Air Canada Center to battle the Toronto Raptors tonight.
The Warriors will be looking to build on their current four-game win streak after beating the Suns by 133-120 in a shootout on Sunday. Stephen Curry led the way with 30 points, Kevin Durant added 29 points while Draymond Green had 14 points with seven rebounds and 11 assists, but the real positive from the win was the play of Klay Thompson who has had his troubles this season but scored 14 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter to help the Warriors get the win. With the win, Golden State improves to 8-2 overall and 4-1 at home.

Meanwhile, the Raptors were aiming for their fourth straight win last night but instead fell to the Cavaliers by 121-117 in a tight contest. Kyle Lowry led the team with 28 points, DeMar DeRozan added 26 points while Terrence Ross had 18 points off the bench, but in a game that was so close that it could have gone either way, it was LeBron James and the Cavaliers who executed better down the stretch to deliver the Raptors their first road loss of the season. With the loss, Toronto drops to 7-3 overall and 3-1 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall, while the Raptors are 8-0 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero days rest and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall.
Head to head, the Warriors are 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings overall and the home team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings.
The Raptors are always tough to beat at the Air Canada Center but I just feel that the Warriors will be too tough to handle on the second night of a back to back set. I think could be the difference so I'm taking the Warriors to get the win and cover on the road.
