Wizards vs. Raptors Betting Line, Fantasy Picks: John Wall Minutes Boost

The Wizards vs. Raptors betting line was available at Skybook.

This TSN nationally broadcast game at 7:30 pm EST should attract some decent betting action especially with both of these teams enjoying winning records on the season.  The line was a solid Raptors -5 here.

The Raptors have won eight of their last ten games overall but have paid out in only four of those.  Toronto sits at the .500 mark Against The Spread.

Washington, while enjoying a 33-20 Straight Up record on the season, has performed below average Against The Spread at 22-30-1.  They have covered in their last two overall but failed to do so in their nine previous games.   

Toronto has owned this series, winning six of the last seven games against Washington.  The Raptors have covered in all but one of those wins.  This stat is enhanced somewhat with Bradley Beal absent from the Wizards Wednesday night.

Because the Raptors play at such a fast pace, there are plenty of options to choose from for daily fantasy players, especially with Beal out.

John Wall ($9100) should be among the bigger beneficiaries to snatch up some of Beal’s minutes, not to mention he has been scoring 37 fantasy points or more in seven of his last ten games.

Note to those looking to select from the Raptors for their rosters this evening: Washington ranks among the top defensive teams in the league with 97.4 points allowed per game

Toronto Raptors – D. DeRozan $7K, J. Johnson $3.6K, K. Lowry $7.2K, A. Johnson $4.2K, J. Valanci $5K (Feb 11)

Washington Wizards – G. Temple $3K, P. Pierce $4.2K, J. Wall $9K, N. Hilario $4.6K, M. Gortat $5.1 (Feb 11)
