The Toronto Raptors pay a visit to the Los Angeles Clippers at the Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday night. Here’s a Raptors vs Clippers prediction.

Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have been in a rut as they’ve lost seven of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after falling painfully short to the Lakers in a 132-131 road defeat last night. Scottie Barnes led the team with 26 points and six assists on 11 of 20 shooting, Pascal Siakam added 25 points, RJ Barrett scored 23 points with 10 rebounds and five assists while Immanuel Quickley chipped in with 21 points and five assists. As a team, the Raptors shot 56 percent from the field and 17 of 35 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Lakers in a close contest, until the Lakers used a pivotal 8-0 run late in the fourth quarter to slip away from them in the end. The Raptors will take on the Jazz after this one.

Toronto Raptors Team Facts

  • The Raptors have lost each of their last seven road games when playing with a rest disadvantage.
  • The Raptors have covered the spread in each of their last six road games on the second leg of a back-to-back against Western Conference opponents.
  • Eight of the Raptors’ last nine road games following a road loss have gone OVER the total points line.

Los Angeles Clippers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in terrific form as they’ve won six of their last seven games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after making light work of the Suns in a 138-111 win on Monday. Paul George led the team with 25 points, Ivica Zubac and James Harden scored 19 points each while Terance Mann chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Clippers shot a sizzling 62 percent from the field and 15 of 29 from the 3-point line as they got into a groove early to take the lead, before they caught fire in the fourth quarter to run up the score and make it a blowout.

Los Angeles Clippers Team Facts

  • The Clippers have won each of their last nine night games following a home win.
  • The Clippers have covered the spread in each of their last nine games as favorites following a home win.
  • Each of the Clippers’ last five games as favorites against the Raptors have gone UNDER the total points line.

Raptors vs Clippers prediction

The Raptors are still without Jakob Poeltl and Otto Porter Jr, while the Clippers are coming in with a full squad. The Raptors haven’t been able to get on any sort of a run this season and they will be kicking themselves after dropping a winnable game against the Lakers last night. However, the Raptors aren’t going to get any sympathy from the red-hot Clippers who made it look easy against the improving Suns in a dominant win on Monday. The line is a bit hefty here, but the Raptors are playing this one on zero days rest, so I’ll back the Clippers to take advantage and get another win and cover at home.
