NBA Betting Predictions: Toronto Raptors vs New Jersey Nets
Tonight the New Jersey Nets try for a three game winning streak and fourth victory in five games over the visiting Toronto Raptors. BetDSI Sportsbook current NBA live betting lines show the New Jersey Nets as -5 point favorites over the Toronto Raptors.
The New Jersey Nets have found some stability since losing 11 out of their first 14 games by winning four of their last six. Against the Cavaliers the Nets were hitting their shots great shooting 36-79 from the floor and hitting 11-28 three point attempts. New Jersey had seven total steals and forced 14 Cleveland turnovers.
New Jersey’s big turn around the past 6 games is mostly in part to Deron Williams who has is averaging 22.3 points and 9.5 assists during that span with five double-doubles. Against the Cavaliers Williams put up 27 points with a game high 10 assists. Anthony Marrow was next on the Nets in scoring with 22 and also grabbed 6 rebounds. Guard Jordan Farmar led the bench with 11 points and 7 assists.
With star Andrea Bargnani hurt again it is going to be a rough road forward for the Toronto Raptors who lost badly 96-81 on the road Friday. They shot a poor 39 percent from the floor 32-82, hit 7 out of 19 three point attempts and turned over the ball a 16 total times.
There was just not much scoring at all going on for the Toronto Raptors with Leandro Barbosa leading the way with 19. Guard Jerryd Bayless was right behind him with 18 points, 3 assists while James Johnson had 16 points 2 assists. Center Aaron Gray led the team with 11 total rebounds and also ha da blocked shot.
NBA Betting Predictions: The Toronto Raptors have showed little ability to score with Bargnani out especially on the road. I’m looking for the New Jersey Nets to easily defeat the the traveling Toronto Raptors and will lay the -4 points.
