Knicks vs. Raptors Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Raptors roll to convincing win over Knicks? 2/8/18

Are the host Toronto Raptors going to ease to a victory tonight when they take on the New York Knicks at 7:30PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: Toronto. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Raptors are a 13.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 211.5. Toronto opened as a 14-point fave, while the over-under has shot up from 207.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Thursday afternoon, 55 percent of public bets have sided with the Raptors. Online wager info also shows 57 percent of bets coming in on the over.

Who We Like: The season series is split 1-1 straight up and ATS with each team winning on their home court back in November. The last 10 meetings are split 5-5 ATS, while the under is 6-4. New York has lost four in a row straight up and has gone 1-3 ATS in that stretch. In the last game, the Knicks lost star Kristaps Porzingis for the season to a torn ACL. Toronto has won three in a row, all at home, and covered the spread each time. Toronto is 22-4 straight up at home this season, while New York is 7-21 on the road. The Raptors are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games and the under is 6-4.

I know the spread is large here and it will turn some bettors away, but I like Toronto to win big here. Porzingis plus center Enes Kanter are out tonight and New York is awful on the road against a dominant home team. Take the home team here.
