Raptors Bid to Keep Winning Streak Alive

Kyle Lowry Toronto Raptors NBA

The Toronto Raptors are the hottest team in the standings as well as one of the hottest at the betting window and will look to extend their franchise record winning streak to 11 games when they host the Detroit Pistons at the Air Canada Centre Saturday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
  • OVER is 5-0 in the previous five meetings.
  • The Raptors are 1-5 ATS in their last six games versus the Central Division.

The Raptors, currently an 8-point home favorite at online shop Bovada, have gone 8-2 ATS during their sizzling 10-game SU winning streak. Season to date, the Raptors have put together a 26-19-1 ATS mark; still a few games behind the Spurs’ blistering 31-15 ATS pace, but one of the top teams at the betting window nonetheless.

The Raps’ last six wins have come on their home floor, where they have won five of those six by double digits and have an average margin of victory of 13.8 points during their recent stay at home.

In come the Pistons, who currently sit seventh in the Eastern Conference, but have been just average since thumping the Golden State Warriors 113-95 back on January 16. In their seven games since, the Pistons have gone 3-4 both SU and ATS and lost 114-106 to the Cleveland Cavaliers their last time out Friday evening.

Saturday’s meeting will be the first between the Eastern Conference foes this season. They split four games last season with Detroit getting the edge at the betting window with a 3-1 ATS mark.
