The Toronto Raptors and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Monday in NBA action at the Quicken Loans Arena.

The Toronto Raptors look to keep the ball rolling after winning 11 of their last 14 games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 114.1 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 108.8 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 27.1 points and 7.3 rebounds while Pascal Siakam is averaging 16.4 points and seven rebounds. Serge Ibaka is the third double-digit scorer and Kyle Lowry is dishing 9.1 assists. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 80.5 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game. The Toronto Raptors have won six of their last seven road games.

The Cleveland Cavaliers look for a victory here after splitting their last 10 games. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 103.7 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 113.5 points on 49.1 percent shooting. Kevin Love is averaging 18.8 points and 10.8 rebounds while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17 points and 2.4 assists. Collin Sexton is the third double-digit scorer and Cedi Osman is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.7 rebounds per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have split their last six home games.

The Raptors are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 0 days rest, 6-12 ATS in their last 18 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Monday games, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Atlantic. The Raptors are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Cleveland and 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Cavaliers last 7 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Raptors last 5 road games.

The Toronto Raptors have won all three games this season against the Cleveland Cavaliers and all three of those wins were by double digits. The Raptors took the Miami Heat behind the woodshed yesterday, the same team that just beat the snot out of the Cavs a few days ago. The Raptors could also have a healthy Kawhi Leonard for this game considering he didn't play Sunday. The Cavaliers are just 15-19 ATS this season at home and 7-14 ATS when a double-digit underdog. I'm never a fan of getting involved with big chalk, but the Raptors can blow the doors off these Cavs if they play with any sort of interest. 

Pick:
Toronto Raptors -8.5
