1/28/2013 is the first match up between Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors. These are only scheduled to meet twice this season and the first game is in Toronto. The Golden State Warriors has a 26-17 record and second in the Pacific division of the western conference. The Toronto Raptors has a record of 16-28, last in the atlantic division, and last in the eastern conference.

Golden State Warriors have won 4 out of the last 10 games, the last 2 games are resulted in a close lost, and the Warriors record for January so far is 5-7. The Warriors lowest score this month has been 75 points while they lost by 17 points to the Miami Heat. The Warriors leading scorer is Stephen Curry, averaging 21 points a game. The Warriors has a 6-3 record on the road against the East.

Toronto Raptors have won 4 out of the last 10 games, the last 2 games were close and vs losing teams, and the Raptors January so far is 4-5. The Raptors leading scorer is DeMar DeRozan with an average of 17 points a game. The Toronto Raptors has a 6-4 record at home vs the West.

This should be a high scoring game since both teams are high scoring teams as well as allowing their opponents to score 80+ points per game. If both teams get hot early in the game I believe this game could easily be 200+ total points. BetOnline odds for this game at the time of writing this article has Golden State Warriors -1 and Toronto Raptors +1 as well as an over/under of 201½.

My Pick: Golden State Warriors
