The Raptors are -5 point favorites and the over/under is currently at 223.5 total points.

These two teams last played each other way back in November where both teams shot under 37% from the field and under 29% from 3 point land. The Raptors ended up taking the 90-83 road victory in that one.

Toronto comes into this game picking up two huge wins against the Lakers on Saturday 107-92, where the Lakers were just worn out by the fourth quarter and the Raptors took full advantage of that fatigue by putting up 35 points to seal the deal. Then on Monday, they squeaked by the Heat with a 107-103 win. The last time Siakam faced Orlando, he finished with just 10 points, thanks largely in part to the elite defense of the Jonathan Isaac, but Isaac will be absent after suffering a torn ACL over the weekend. Definitely, keep your eye balls locked on those player prop bets for Siakam when their released.

The Raptors score an average of 112.8 points per game and lead the league on defense only giving up an average of 106.3 points per game. Toronto are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last 6 games and the total has gone under in 10 of the Raptors last 10 games when playing on the road against the Magic.

Orlando is coming off a 120-109 loss to the Pacers Tuesday Night. Indiana scored the first 10 points of the game and went up 19-3 before five minutes had gone by and the Magic ended up giving up 43 total points in the first quarter. Michael Carter-Williams, one of Orlando’s top defenders, experienced some soreness in his left foot and as a precautionary measure, he didn’t return in the second half, so that’s definitely something to keep your eye on in this game.

The Magic score an average of 107.1 points per game, while giving up 107.6 points per game on defense. Orlando is 3-9 straight up in their last 12 games when playing as the underdog and 6-1 against the spread in their last 7 games.
