Toronto Raptors

Vegas Over/Under: 48.5

Fromal’s Record Projection: 48-34
The Bet: Avoid but lean under
Even though the Toronto Raptors’ offseason could be deemed a favorable because they were able to keep Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, they didn’t escape scot-free.
Cory Joseph and DeMarre Carroll were traded away to fresh locations, which places much more pressure on Delon Wright and new registering C.J. Miles to fill the shoes of the deceased contributors.
Fortunately, they should be able to.
Joseph wasn’t particularly successful in Toronto, and Wright has more upside as Lowry’s primary backup. And following Carroll proved a bust on his new contract, Miles should fit in with his spot-up prowess and willingness to do the small things so well.
All these are strong but largely lateral moves, containing high floors but little more than hints at loftier ceilings.
The Raptors went 51-31 last year, which was an accurate representation of the abilities.
However, regression is coming–not because of roster moves, but instead gamers sliding down in the leaguewide pecking order. Lowry is another year removed from his 30th birthday (terrible news for a point guard), Ibaka is no spring chicken and the team is relying on much more childhood for its depth, which might result in some inconsistent showings.
Toronto should still end towards the top of this Eastern Conference; our projections have them at No. 4. But compelling for 50 wins might be asking a bit much.
