Angles for Saturday’s huge NBA slate, based on matchups and trends…

Raptors at Nets

The Angle: Injuries make the Raps go under

The under has hit in four straight Raptors games, as Marc Gasol, Norman Powell, and most notably, Pascal Siakam have been out and continue to be out. The Nets have one of the best shot profiles in the NBA, with the second-best expected eFG% league-wide. Now, they haven’t been able to, you know, actually make those shots, shooting just a 50.5 eFG%.

The Raptors are also the third-best team defending spot-ups, the very shots the Nets are always looking for. The Nets’ team totals in the last two weeks have been consistently under 110, putting a good chance here that Toronto wins a stilted affair with all the injuries. Evan Scott is officiating, and the under is 14-9 in games he refs, per Bet Labs.

The Play: Under 216
