With the way the Raptors have been playing as of late it is highly unlikely that they will gain ground on any of the four worse teams in the league to increase their lottery odds of winning the top pick. At the same time the Nets are playing better than the Raptors right now, the Pistons are playing on par with them and the Clippers and Bucks don't have enough games left to fail at the magnitude required to steal the fifth worst spot. The chances seem high that the Raptors will enter the lottery with the fifth most lottery balls. What does that mean? Well let me break it down for you by showing you the Raptors odds of winning a top three picks and beyond if the season ended today:

Pick/Odds
1st/8.8%
2nd/9.7%
3rd/10.7%

---
5th/26.1%
6th/36.0%
7th/8.4%
8th/0.4%
