The Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards meet Saturday in NBA action at the Capital One Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Raptors vs Wizards prediction.

Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have been in horrible form as they’ve 11 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a 10th straight defeat after getting routed by the Thunder in a 123-103 loss last night. Gradey Dick led the team in scoring with 21 points, Kelly Olynyk added 16 points with six rebounds and five assists on seven of nine shootig while Ochai Agbaji chipped in with 12 points, seven rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Raptors shot 52 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line as they poured in 35 points in the first quarter to take an early 11-point lead, but they just had no answer for the Thunder who dominated the rest of the game to send the Raptors to another massive defeat at home. The Raptors will meet the Nets after this one.

Washington Wizards

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have lost 21 of their last 24 games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum after snapping a five-game losing streak with a 109-102 win over the Kings on Thursday. Kyle Kuzma led the team with 31 points, six rebounds and five assists on 13 of 22 shooting, Deni Avdija added 17 points with nine rebounds and five assists while Corey Kispert chipped in with 15 points on six of nine shooting. As a team, the Wizards shot 50 percent from the field and 10 of 25 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Kings from the start and built a 19-point lead which was more than enough to hold off a late charge from the Kings who rallied in the fourth quarter.

Washington Wizards Team Facts

  • The Wizards have lost each of their last nine home games following a win.
  • The Wizards have failed to cover the spread in each of their last six games as favorites against Atlantic Division opponents.
  • Seven of the Wizards’ last eight games as favorites against the Raptors have gone OVER the total points line.

Toronto Raptors Team Facts

  • The Raptors have lost each of their last nine games.
  • The Raptors have covered the spread in seven of their last eight night games at Capital One Arena.
  • Each of the Raptors’ last five games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Raptors vs Wizards prediction

The Raptors are still missing a few players with Jakob Poeltl, Scottie Barnes and RJ Barrett, while the Wizards are still missing Tyus Jones, Landry Shamet and maybe Jordan Poole who is questionable. You really couldn’t back either side with any confidence as these have been two of the worst teams in the league, but the Wizards looked like a different team in their surprise win over the Kings on Thursday and I think they can surprise the Raptors in this one if they come out with the same intensity.
