Toronto Raptors vs. Houston Rockets
NBA Betting Pick: Toronto +6.5 (November 14th 2017)

Toronto comes in off a tough 95-94 road loss to Boston Sunday. Houston has won six straight, most recently getting by Indiana 118-95.

Note that these team’s split a pair of games last year, with each winning on the others floor.

DeMar DeRozan had 24 points for Toronto in the loss to the Celtics. The Raptors average 108.8 PPG and concede 104.3.

Toronto is a deep team, with DeRozan, Kyle Lowry, big man Jona Valanciunas, Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell.

With a six game win streak under their belts and a 2.5 game lead in the division over the Spurs, there’s no question in my mind that this now finally sets up as a mental letdown spot for the Rockets.

Additionally I’ll point out that Houston is just 15-22 ATS in its last 37 after three or more consecutive SU wins and only 23-30 ATS in its last 53 following a victory by ten points or more.

Toronto has excelled against good offensive teams this year, going 4-2 ATS against clubs that average 106-plus points per contest.

Should be a nail-biter and while I obviously wouldn’t be shocked by an outright upset, I will in the end recommend grabbing as many points as you can.
