Raptors vs Wizards Game 2 Betting Predictions

After dropping the opening game in Toronto, the Raptors are now 0-7 in Game 1 of an NBA playoff series. With Game 2 on Tuesday, April 21, the Raptors will be looking to claw their way back at the ACC. Sports bettors can check out some interesting prop odds, and also read our breakdown of Game 2, which includes some predictions as well.

The Raptors have had three days off to think about the loss and let it sink in. The Raptors were reduced to a jump shooting team and the ball just wasn’t going in. This was especially evident in the 3 point category team went a horrendous 6-29.

Rebounding was also a major issue, especially on the offensive glass, where the team was out-rebounded 19-10. When your guards lead your team in rebounds, that is usually a recipe for disaster. On the bright side, coach Dwayne Casey has attributed much of this to effort, which hopes to improve.

Kyle Lowry had an ‘off night’ where he went 2-10 shooting and fouled out of the game late in the 4th quarter. Many observers felt that Lowry looked tired as the game wore on, and the early start time didn’t help much for a team that was limping down the stretch. However, the Raptors (especially Lowry) have had a much-needed rest since the loss on Saturday.

The Raptors needs Lowry on the floor because he is actually one of the team’s best rebounders, on top of what he already provides. Lowry has rarely posted two poor perfmances in a row, and it is not likely the team leader will to start now during playoff basketball. Look for Lowry to log big minutes in Game 2 and be a force on the floor.

Paul Pierce has been a thorn in the side of Toronto Raptors fans and it doesn’t seem to matter what team he plays for. The ageing Pierce came up with a 20 point performance which included some clutch 3 point shots. Toronto could be guilty of being to lax with the defense on Pierce, so look for coach Dwayne Casey to remedy this for Game 2.

Predictions: Kyle Lowry OVER 28.5 points+assists+rebounds. Kyle Lowry OVER 6.5 assists. Paul Pierce UNDER 13.5 points.
