Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors Predictions and Picks
It looks like the bookmakers sent out a bad line on this one because this total is rapidly on the move. The opening total for this game was 229.5, and it’s already been bet up to 232.5. Frankly, I think the number is still short. Per TeamRankings, Only the Wizards play at a faster tempo than the Warriors. Golden State averages 108.8 possessions per game, while Toronto also likes to get the ball up and down the court. The Raptors are 11th in the league with 105.2 possessions per game.
If we look at three-pointers made per game, Toronto (15.5) and Golden State (13.7) are within the top-8 teams in the league. In fact, Golden State has averaged 17 three-pointers over their last three games.
On the defensive end, neither team does a great job guarding the perimeter. Both teams are near the bottom of the league in this category, with the Warriors 29th in allowing 14.9 three-pointers made per game while Toronto is 23rd with 13.6 allowed field goals from distance. Over their last three games, Toronto is actually allowing the second-most three-pointers made per game (17).
My model projects this total at 236.5 points, which gives me a four-point cushion at the current total of 232.5. With plenty of over trends coming into this game for both teams, I think we’ll have an old-fashioned shootout on Sunday night.
The Pick: Over 232.5
