  • Each of the Raptors’ last four home games against Pacific Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Kings vs Raptors prediction

I’m not thrilled to lay double-digit chalk with the Sacramento Kings on the road, but there’s really no other option. The Toronto Raptors in full on tank mode with losses in 9 of their last 10 games, and they’ve covered just 2 of those games. The Raptors will be without Quickley, Barrett and Barnes for this game as well. The Kings can allow teams to hang around at times, and they do play the Wizards tomorrow. Still, it’s the Kings or pass for me. The Raptors have thrown in the towel on the season.
