Against The Spread Pick
The Toronto Raptors seem to finally be getting healthy and it has led to a lot of success and confidence. They come into this game having won five straight games. In their last game against the 76ers they fell behind early, but never panicked and it led to success. Against the 76ers they only gave up 15 points in the second quarter and a total of only 45 points in the last two quarters. For the Knicks this has been a team that has been competitive at times, but they just don’t have the talent to keep up in this one. Over the last five games they are averaging only 97 points, and that will be the difference. Back the Raptors to win this game and cover the spread.
Over Under Pick
Like stated above, the Knicks are really struggling to score and that is going to keep this total nice and low. Over the last five games they are averaging only 97 points per game and the Raptors are coming off a game where they gave up only 95 points. The under is 8-3 in the Knicks last 11 games against the Atlantic. This game should stay well under, and these are both strong plays.
