Analysis
Our 25* NBA Total of the Month is with the Toronto/Memphis over at 8:10 pm et. Toronto has been wildly inconsistent this season. They lost three of their first four games before winning five in a row at the start of the season. The Raptors then lost six of seven before splitting their last two games. They are 8-10 on the season after a 119-104 loss at Golden State on Sunday. The play on offense has improved yet the defensive intensity has declined. Perhaps those trends are a result of the return to the court of Pascal Siakam who was injured to start the year before playing in seven games this month. Toronto has allowed their last five opponents to average 114.4 points per game on 50.5% shooting. Those numbers are much higher than the 105.8 ppg and 46.8% shooting they are allowing for the season. The Raptors are averaging 109.8 ppg in these last five games which is 4 ppg above their season average. Their games have averaged 216.6 total ppg yet their last five games have seen 224.2 combined ppg. The Raptors have lost four of these last five games, and they have played seven of their last eight games over the number after losing at least two of their last three games. They go on the road where they have played four of their last five games over the total. They have played seven of their last eleven games over the number when the oddsmakers install the over/under in the 210 to 219.5 point range. Memphis has played twenty-five of their last thirty-three games over the number when the oddsmakers install the over/under from 210 to 219.5 range. The Grizzlies have won three of their last four games after a 119-118 upset victory at Utah as an 11-point underdog on Monday. Memphis has played four straight overs, and they have played twenty of their last twenty-seven games over the number after playing at least two games that finished over the total. They average 110.1 ppg on 44.3% shooting this year, and they see those numbers increase to 114.7 ppg and 47.4% shooting in their nine home games. They allow the visiting teams to average 113.1 ppg. The Grizzlies’ last five games have seen 229.8 combined ppg. Take the over. Good luck - Team Del Genio.
