Injuries to Note

  • The Wizards are without Rui Hachimura, as the forward is still working his way back through the league’s protocols after arriving late to training camp/preseason (approved absence; personal).
  • Beal suffered a knee contusion in the team’s final preseason contest but he’s fine to play in the opener.
  • Toronto is without Pascal Siakam (shoulder).

Washington Will Start Three Newcomers

Prop to Watch

Bradley Beal Under 26.5 points – Bradley Beal is an incredible scorer, though, over the past few years, he’s benefited more from getting in rhythm game-by-game. That, coupled with him likely to look to get some of his new teammates involved early as a facilitator, decreases the likeliness of a Beal scoring brigade in the opener.

Additional Odds & Ends

Toronto may struggle overall until Pascal Siakam returns, though, despite the All-Star being sidelined, Washington will have its hands full as it looks to acclimate all of its new parts.

  • Toronto has a 56% chance to win this contest (via PointsBet).
  • 58% of the bets are on the Raptors; 61% of the money is on the Wizards as of this writing.
  • The Raptors have beaten the Wizards eight straight times in Toronto.
