The Toronto Raptors are dealing with a ton of injuries, and they're now going up against a rested Mavericks team that wins in the favorite role by an average of 4.1 points. Barnes has already been ruled out for the Raptors, while Fred VanVleet is questionable. Of course, that's on top of no Pascal Siakam and Precious Achiuwa for the foreseeable future. I'll lay the bucket with the Mavericks on the road.
