Cavaliers at Raptors: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Raptors 114, Cavaliers 102

Money line (ML)

The Raptors (-550) should get back in the win column Monday while still in the fight for the all-important 10th seed in the Eastern Conference, but the chalky price needs to be avoided.

PASS on the money line and look to the spread for a real profit opportunity.

Against the spread (ATS)

Toronto and Cleveland split their first two meetings of the season with the Raptors winning 135-115 as 3-point underdogs in the most recent of those matchups April 10. The Raps had covered in four straight games prior to Saturday while the Cavs are 1-5 ATS in their last six games.

Toronto is the much better 3-point shooting team and Cleveland is 27th in 3-point defense. The Cavs are also 28th in offensive rating for the season and are expected to be without their leading scorer in Sexton (24.5 points per game) once again.

Back the RAPTORS -10.5 (-110) to win by at least 11 points with the Cavaliers lacking the offense to keep up.

Over/Under (O/U)

Lean very slightly to the UNDER 217.5 (-110). The first two meetings of the season played to the Over on similar point projections, but Cleveland is just 2-4-1 O/U over its last seven games coming into Monday.

The offensive ratings of both the Raptors and their opponents also take hits with Boucher off the court.
