The Toronto Raptors have earned my NBA pick on the plus money line today, as I expect them to come out and win game four in this Eastern Conference matchup vs. Washington.

Survivor Odds
Right now NBA betting odds makers have come out with Washington at a solid -6 favorite, but that gives some good value on the Raptors at around 2-1 odds to survive and win this game.  I really like how the Wizards have played in these last three games, in fact I had them to win the first game as the underdog.  In my opinion Toronto is simply too talented to get swept, it seems cliché and they are definitely on the ropes but I expect them to make some good adjustments to extend the series.

Not That Far Off
Here is a quick recap of the games, Toronto lost by 7, 11, and 7 points.  But these games have not been simply dominated by Washington, a couple more buckets fall for the Raptors and they would have at least one win.  Percentage wise they have been out shot by the Wizards although statistically they are the better offensive team.  Breaking things down even more, in game one in went OT so could have gone either way, in game two Lowry picked up three quick fouls, Wizards went on a run, and then he sat out with a leg injury the rest of the way.  In game three Lowry plays but the Raptors shot one of their worst games of the year at below 38% from the field, they just had a really bad second quarter.

When I reflect on this series it does not seem to me that Washington has been dominant, it has been a combination of, yes, their good play, but also Toronto simply not playing as well as they can.  These teams are pretty evenly matched and I think beating the Raptors four times in row will be much more difficult than people think.  I like them and the value here, good spot to take them as NBA picks on the plus money line.
