Warriors Own Major Edge in Series With Raptors

The Golden State Warriors have spent the last few years going from one of the league’s most beloved teams to its most hated, while the Toronto Raptors have quietly been one of the best squads around. The Raps and Dubs will square off on the hardwood tonight, and oddsmakers opened the Warriors as 10-point favorites with a total of 226.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games.
  • The UNDER is 10-1 in the Warriors' last 11 games.
  • The Raptors are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 meetings in Golden State.

Toronto won its franchise-best seventh straight road game on Monday in a 95-91 triumph against Portland. The Dinos will be playing in the third of a seven-game road trip after toppling Utah and the Blazers. The Raptors have won 14 of their last 16 and will face Golden State, Phoenix, the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio before heading back to Canada.

The Warriors have dominated this series of late, claiming each of the last five meetings between the clubs. Toronto’s last win over Golden State came in March of 2014 – a 104-98 victory.

Toronto would be wise to let Draymond Green fire at will tonight, as the controversial power forward is 0-for-8 from 3-point range in the Warriors’ last two games.
