Washington vs Toronto: prediction for the NBA preseason match
Despite it is only a preseason, Wizards' current form is dreadful. In the first match capital team was beaten by Houston (99:125) and then suffered a defeat to New York (99:117).
Everyone thought that Wizards will start to play better after a departure of Russell Westbrook, but so far everything is not looking good. Now Wizards will rely on Bradley Beal, because other players are looking too weak now. Caldwell-Pope, Dinwiddie and Kuzma are unable to live up to expectations so far. Montrezl Harrell is trying to pull the team up, but so far he is unsuccessful.
During the summer Toronto lost Kyle Lowry. Now it will be a completely different team, because this player was a key part of Nick Nurse's offense. But everything is not so hopeless as everybody thought it would be. In the previous match Precious Achiuwa put up a great performance. In the match against Houston he scored 18 points in just 17 minutes on the floor. Maybe he will become the new leader of the team?
So far Raptors played four preseason matches. They beat Philadelphia (123:107) and Houston (107:92). Though, in the second match against the Sixers they suffered a 113:125 defeat. Canadian team also failed to beat Boston (111:113).
In three out of four most recent matches Wizards scored at least 109 points
In 3 out of 4 most recent matches Raptors failed to score more than 114 points
Toronto team is looking great on the offense. Canadians are averaging 113,5 points per game in preseason matches. Team from the capital also can score many points. Their most recent match was not so high-scoring, but before that they scored 119 points in the match against Houston. We think that Bradley Beal and his partners will put up a high-scoring performance this time.
Our prediction - total over 222,5 points
Prediction: Total over 222,5

Toronto is looking better in preseason matches. Team has no leader, so any player can put up a high-scoring performance. Raptors should be able to beat Washington, who relies on Bradley Beal too much.
Our second bet is on Toronto to win
