Game of the Month (NBA) - Schule's Eastern Conference Best Bet of 2018!
Toronto vs. Washington,
02/01/2018 19:00 EDT,
Score: 119 - 122
Money Line: -158 Toronto
This is a 10* play on the Toronto Raptors.
The Eastern Conference appears to be a two horse race, and the Raptors are just 1.5 games back of Boston. They come into tonight's game at Washington as winners of three of their last four, and they have one of the better road records in the league. The Wizards haven't missed a beat since losing John Wall to a knee injury. They won on the road at Atlanta, and they won a close game at home versus Oklahoma City. Tonight's game will be their third straight game without Wall, and I think they are going to struggle against one of the elite teams in the Eastern Conference. Since 2015, the Raptors have won all four of their games at Washington, covering the spread in three of those games. The Wizards have failed to cover in five of their last six home games, and they are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 overall. I like Toronto to take advantage of an undermanned Wizards team here in such a key game.
