I’m now 6-8 in Raptors picks as Utah (+4) was defeated by Toronto 123-104 in overtime on Wednesday night. Tonight the Raptors play at home versus the 10-7 Cleveland Cavaliers.
(10-7) Cleveland Cavaliers @ (15-4) Toronto Raptors
Probable starting line-ups:
Cleveland – Point Guard – Kyrie Irving Shooting Guard – Shawn Marion C- Anderson Varejao Small Forward – LeBron James Power Forward – Kevin Love

Toronto – PF – 109.7 (2nd) PA – 99.7 (16th)
This is the 2nd meeting of the season between Cleveland and Toronto. In the 1st meeting, November 22nd at Cleveland, the Raptors were victorious 110-93. After tonight the 2 teams play 1 more time, March 4th at Toronto.
The Raptors come back home after a some-what successful 2-1 Western Conference road trip. The Cavaliers played last night so they could may be a little winded but after they were trounced at home earlier by this same Raptors team (except DeRozan was playing) I think they’ll be out for blood tonight and trying to make a statement. Take the Cavaliers +4.5 (1.95) (Bet365)
