The Golden State Warriors are starting to mesh earlier than many people expected and the result is a four-game winning streak which has seen them average 122.5 points. The Dubs will look to continue the offensive barrage against the Toronto Raptors in Canada on Wednesday.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Warriors’ last five games against the Eastern Atlantic division.
- The Raptors are 15-5 SU in their last 20 games at home against teams with winning records.
- The Warriors are 1-6 SU and ATS in their last seven games as a favorite of 5.5 or less.
Oddsmakers opened the Raptors as 5.5-point underdogs with a total of 220.
Kevin Durant is fitting in just fine with his new teammates. The Texas product is averaging 27.7 points per game, while sharpshooting point guard Stephen Curry is at 27.2. The Warriors have won each of the last four meetings with the Raps.
Toronto is playing in the second half of a brutal back-to-back that saw them fall to the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. The good news for Dinos backers is defensive stopper DeMarre Carroll will be on the floor to guard Durant tonight. The small forward sat out against the Cavs due to knee soreness.
Golden State will need to focus on slowing down the streaking DeMar DeRozan. DeRozan leads the NBA in scoring (33.2) and has recorded 30 or more points in eight of Toronto’s 10 games so far.
