The Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors are both trying to earn a better position for themselves in their respective conference standings. Despite sitting 12th in the East, the Toronto Raptors are on a two-game winning streak and have won six of their last 10 games. The Golden State Warriors won their last game, but they've won just four of their last 10 games.

The Raptors are one of the league's better defensive teams, allowing just 112.1 points per game (9th in the NBA) while forcing 16.8 turnovers (2nd in the NBA) and collecting 9.4 steals per game (1st in the NBA). In their last game, the Toronto Raptors held the league's top offense to just 95 points while forcing 19 turnovers. The Golden State Warriors are an offense-first team, averaging 117.7 points per game (3rd in the NBA) while making 16.4 threes per game (1st in the NBA) on 37.8% efficiency (5th in the NBA). In the Warriors' last game, a win over the Grizzlies, they were able to score 122 points on 50.6% from the field and 43.8% from three.

Toronto's defense is nothing to scoff at, even if it isn't the most traditional type in the NBA. Don't be mistaken, the Warriors will find their points from the three-point line considering the Raptors give allow 37.4% three-point shooting per game (28th in the NBA). But we're still taking the Raptors given their performance against the Kings in their last game and how solid they look with a shortened lineup.

Total: Over 229.5 (-110) @ PointsBet

When the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors face off, it's certain to be an offense-defense matchup. The Toronto Raptors are averaging a combined points total of 224.7 on a plus-0.5 points differential. The Golden State Warriors are averaging a combined 235.7 points on a minus-0.3 points differential.

Over their last five games, the Toronto Raptors have averaged a combined points total of 233.0 while going 2-3 over that span of time. Their recent success comes from their uptick in three-point shooting, as they've averaged 39.1% from three over their last five games compared to 33.4% on the season as a whole. The Warriors are averaging a combined 239.2 points over their last five games while winning three of those five games. The Warriors continue to shoot excellently from deep, averaging 17.2 threes over their last five on 42.4% efficiency.

We're taking the over when the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors face off. While it's an offense-defense battle, the Warriors are particularly strong where the Raptors struggle to defend - from three-point range. It'll be an up-and-down affair so expect the form of these teams to push the total beyond 229.5.
