The Raptors are 1-11 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Golden State, 6-19-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings and the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
After a sluggish start to the season, the Golden State Warriors are due for a breakout performance, and it might as well come at home. The Raptors are expected to be without Valanciunas and DeRozan is questionable with an injured thigh. If neither of those guys play, this thing could get very ugly for a Raptors squad that will be without two of their top players. Have to like the Warriors to win this game by double digits.
