Skidding Raptors Will Be in Tough Without DeRozan vs Spurs

The Toronto Raptors have been flying high for the majority of the NBA season, but they’ve hit a wall of late and will be forced to play without all-star shooting guard DeMar DeRozan on Tuesday vs the San Antonio Spurs. Sportsbooks opened the Raps as 2.5-point underdogs with an OVER/UNDER of 209.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Spurs are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games.
  • The Raptors are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games after consecutive losses.

Toronto has dropped three straight games, matching its worst losing streak since November 2015. DeRozan will be out for at least the next two contests with a sprained right ankle and will be re-evaluated on Friday.

The status of power forward Patrick Patterson remains up in the air, as the veteran is listed as questionable with a knee injury. Patterson has missed 10 of the team’s last 12 games, and his return can’t come soon enough for a squad that’s lacking depth at the four spot.

The Spurs, who beat the Raptors by 28 points earlier this month, have long enjoyed success against Canada’s lone NBA franchise. San Antonio is 30-11 SU all-time vs the Raptors.
