The Toronto Raptors will be looking to taking a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series with Washington when they take on the Wizards in Game 2 on Tuesday as 7-point favourites on the NBA odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Toronto overcame a four-point halftime deficit to claim a 114-106 win as 7.5-point chalk in Saturday’s series opener, marking its first Game 1 victory on home court in franchise history, and lifting the club to a heavy -730 favourite on the NBA series prices going into Tuesday night’s matchup at the Air Canada Centre.

The Raptors’ victory in Game 1 also helped to erase the memory of their stunning first-round loss to Washington three years ago. Toronto was outclassed in a four-game sweep by the Wizards in 2015, but has dominated Washington ever since, going 9-3 straight up while avoiding consecutive defeats in 12 meetings, according to the OddsShark NBA Database.

In addition, the Raptors’ 114 points on Saturday marked their highest offensive output in a home date with Washington since February 2014, and handed them consecutive against-the-spread wins in home dates with the Wizards for the first time since 2013.
