Toronto enters play tonight with a 36-18 record and is 30-24 against the spread, although its just 4-6 ATS over its last 10 games despite being 7-3 straight up over that span. New York, meanwhile, is just 2-8 over its last 10 games and has failed to cover the number in seven of their last 10.

Prediction

Even though the Knicks are in the midst of a nasty funk, there's still value in taking the points with the home dog tonight. That's because the Raptors have had an awful time covering the spread at Madison Square Garden and against the Knicks in general. Toronto has failed to cover the number in seven of its last eight games versus New York overall and is just 1-4 ATS in its last five road games versus the Knicks. Plus, the underdog has dominated this series, covering in 21 of the last 28 meetings.
