Raptors at Nets picks and predictions

Prediction

Nets 114, Raptors 111

Moneyline

While they are dealing with a handful of injuries, I’ll still back the NETS (-130) at home on Tuesday. After starting the season with a 1-3 record at home, Brooklyn has won 4 of its last 5 at Barclays Center.

Against the spread

NETS -2.5 (-105) has better value than taking the moneyline as we only need them to win by at least 3 points to cover the spread. Brooklyn is 9th in offensive rating and 5th in effective field-goal percentage.

Even though the Raptors are a solid 10-7 ATS, the Nets are 12-3-1 ATS, including a 7-1-1 ATS record at home.

Over/Under

Neither of these teams plays at a fast pace, but I’ll lean the OVER 224.5 (-110). There’s a chance Claxton misses for the Nets, which would make it easier for the Raptors to score in the paint.

The Raptors have scored 121 or more points in 3 of their last 5 games. Meanwhile, the Nets are 4-2 to the Over in their last 6 games overall.
