The Toronto Raptors are hosting the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Amalie Arena in Tampa on Sunday, April 18, 2021, at 7:00 ET. Both teams are outside the playoff places of their respective conference, but only the Raptors are fighting to get inside. They are tenth in the East and are coming off two straight victories. On the other hand, the Thunder are on a rebuilding year and are 1-12 in their previous thirteen matches. 

The Raptors have a 23-34 record and are 24-33 against the spread and 32-25 in over/under. They are coming off a home victory against the Magic with a 113-102 score. Fred VanVleet returned to the lineup and was the only regular starter for the Raptors in that game. He was very rusty in his 23 minutes of play, scoring just 6 points on a 3-11 shooting. Paul Watson came out of nowhere and scored a game-high 30 points with 8-11 triples. 

Pascal Siakam leads the team both in scoring with 20.8 ppg and in rebounding with 7.2 per game. Fred VanVleet adds 19.5 ppg, 4.2 boards and 6.1 dimes per game. 

The Raptors score 112 ppg and allow 111.4 ppg defensively. They have a 45% field goal percentage and a 37% 3-point percentage. Over is 5-2 in their previous seven matches.

Thunder won their previous matchup against the Raptors on March 31st with a 113-103 score. Thunder is 3-1 against the spread in their previous four matchups and 6-2 in their previous eight. Over is 7-2-1 in their previous ten matchups. The Raptors are 13-15 at home, while the Thunder are 11-16 on the road. Thunder are blatantly tanking and aren’t interested in winning, so I’m going to pick the Raptors in this one. If the handicap is too high, consider in betting in over the line as well.
