Recent Betting Trends:

Thunder are 19-12 ATS this season.

The under is 17-14 in Thunder games this year.

Raptors are 16-13-1 ATS this season.

The over is 15-14-1 in Raptors games this year.

The raptors have been solid at home, posting a 13-4 record to this point.  The Thunder are 5-9 on the road to this point.  The Thunder will be without a key player in this game, as Danilo Gallinari is out with an ankle injury.  The Raptors will still be short handed, as Toronto is still without: Marc Gasol, Norman Powell, and Pascal Siakam.  Both defense's have done well this year, as both are giving up less than 108 per game.  Do to both teams missing key players and the defense's being solid, I'm going to take the under.  Final score prediction, Raptors win and the total goes under, 107-102.
