DeMar DeRozan is averaging 35.8 points and five rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 17.4 points and 5.2 assists.

The Kings are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Raptors are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games. The Kings are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the favorite is 13-6 ATS in the last 19 meetings.
This is a steep line given that the Raptors have played some tight games this year and the Kings have the best player on the floor to help hang around and make things interesting. However, the Kings have just two double-digit scorers and one of those players (Gay) is banged up. The Kings also played yesterday while the Raptors are rested. Add in the way DeRozan is playing right now, and Toronto could win this game by double digits.
