Toronto Raptors Player Stats
After seven straight seasons of playoffs basketball that peaked with an NBA Championship in 2019, the Toronto Raptors finally took a step back in their 2020-21 campaign. A season abroad in Tampa Bay saw the Raptors among the worst teams in the league straight-up, losing bettors 29.45 units in a 27-win season. Thankfully, the Raptors retain key pieces from their championship team in Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry, and few will write them off so quickly. More information on how to bet the Toronto Raptors on the spread, moneyline, over/under, and more can be found below.
Toronto Raptors Point Spreads
Many fans base their opinions on teams as much on their past performance as their current complexion. Bettors who still believed the Raptors were an elite team in 2020-21 were in for a shock: Toronto finished the season with the fifth-worst record against-the-spread (ATS), losing 13 units over the season. Point spreads are bets made on the margin of victory in the game.
Let’s use an example:
- Milwaukee Bucks (+2.5)
- Toronto Raptors (-2.5)
We can tell the Raptors are the favored team because their point spread is tagged with a minus sign (-), while the Bucks are denoted as the underdog with a plus sign (+). This point spread bet is asking bettors if they believe the Raptors will win by three or more points: If you do, a bet on the Raptors would cash on a Toronto victory of three-plus points, while Bucks bettors would win if Milwaukee were to win outright or lose by just a point or two.
Toronto Raptors Moneylines
If betting on the margin of victory isn’t your thing, betting on the moneyline might be for you. Whereas a bet on the point spread requires the favored team to win by a certain amount or an underdog to keep a loss close, the moneyline is simply a bet on who will win. As with point spreads, the favored team has a minus sign (-) next to their odds, while the underdog is indicated with a plus sign (+).
Let’s stick with that Milwaukee-Toronto example:
- Milwaukee Bucks +135
- Toronto Raptors -160
The moneyline odds listed above are written in American odds format. These odds are always tied to the point spread, so a bigger spread means longer odds on the moneyline. In this case, it would require a $160 bet on the favored Raptors to win $100, while a $100 wager on the underdog Bucks would net $135.
Toronto Raptors Over/Unders
There’s also an easy way to bet on Raptors games that doesn’t involve betting them to win or lose by any number of points. Over/unders, also referred to as totals, are bets on the number of points both teams combine to score. If the total for a game was 228 points, over bettors would need more points than that to cash their ticket, while the under would win if fewer points were scored. In the event of an exact tie (228 points on the dot in this case), wagers on the total would “push” and all bettors would be refunded their initial wager.
Toronto Raptors Props
If fantasy sports are your favorite way of getting action on the game, prop bets are the easiest way to dip your toes in the sports betting waters. Unlike the bets mentioned previously, prop bets rarely have anything to do with the direct outcome of the game and are instead focused on individual stat lines or particular events during the game. Some prop bets are simple yes/no questions like “will the game go to overtime?” Others are over/unders for player stats, such as betting Kyle Lowry to have over 17.5 points in a game. Many sportsbooks allow you to combine prop bets in a same-game parlay, so always shop for the best odds and offers with our sportsbook reviews.
When the Raptors won their NBA Championship in 2019, many Toronto bettors celebrated by showing off their winning tickets from the summer before, when they’d bet on the Raptors to win the title in the wake of the Kawhi Leonard trade. This is a type of bet known as a “future,” a bet that’s not tied to the result of the next game, but rather one concerned with happenings further down the line. Futures can be as straightforward as betting a team to win a title or make the playoffs, or as specific as betting over/under a win total, or even selecting a specific player to win MVP or Defensive Player of the Year.
