Golden State Warriors Betting Notes

Trailing 59 to 54 at the half, the Warriors needed a hot start to the third quarter if they hoped to steal Game 2 in Toronto. They got exactly that, opening the first five and a half minutes of the second half with an 18-0 run to take a 72-59 lead.

Golden State would hold on the rest of the way for a 109-104 win, but the team lost Klay Thompson to a hamstring injury down the stretch. Thompson is questionable to play in Game 3 while Kevin Durant has been ruled out for the contest.

The Warriors are 13-1 straight up and 11-3 against the spread over their last 14 home games against the Raptors per the OddsShark NBA Database.

Toronto Raptors Betting Notes

After shooting a red-hot 14-for-17 from the floor and scoring 32 points in Game 1, Pascal Siakam went only 5-for-18 on field goal attempts for 12 points in Game 2. With Siakam scoring only 12 and Kyle Lowry scoring only 13 on Sunday, the Raptors let a brilliant offensive effort from Kawhi Leonard go to waste in a home loss.

Leonard was a perfect 16-for-16 from the free throw line and finished the game with 34 points and 14 rebounds. Toronto is 1-3 SU and ATS in its last four games on the road.

Raptors at Warriors Betting Total

Wednesday night’s total is set at 212.5 points at online sports betting sites. The UNDER is 8-2-1 in Toronto’s last 11 road games.

With Kevin Durant already on the shelf, the Warriors could not afford an injury to another key player like Klay Thompson. Thompson says that he will play in Game 3, but time will tell if he can actually be effective with a tight hamstring. Toronto needs to take advantage of this opportunity while Golden State is banged up.
