The clash sees the seventh-placed Raptors face off against the eighth-placed Nets, who have vowed to overtake each other in the Eastern Conference standings. The betting odds and predictions are given below:

They come into this game on the back of a solid 113-107 victory over the Washington Wizards in their last game. It was once again a Kevin Durant masterclass that saw them take the result home.

Durant has been phenomenal for the Nets this season, performing amazingly in the last game as well, scoring 39 points. Over the last 4 games, he has averaged 38 points per game, carrying the side to results in his lonesome.

The Raptors have impressed everyone in the East this season with their quality performances. They have gone 11-10, even after the prolonged absence of their star man Pascal Siakam.

They have already been defeated by the Nets over the last week, where the Brooklyn side got the better of them in 112-98 fashion.

After a long time out with an injury, Siakam has finally become fully fit to feature for the Raptors regularly.

He is still leading the side across all metrics, scoring 24 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists per game.

Raptors vs. Nets Betting Prediction

This will be a very closely-fought affair between two really strong sides. The Nets have been in great form over the last five games, winning four. Kevin Durant is playing elite basketball and is being supported by quality contributions from Kyrie Irving as well. They have been solid at the Barclays Center, winning seven of their 11 home games, while the Raptors have an awful 3-8 record on the road. All things considered, the Nets should just about edge this one out.
