Raptors vs. Knicks Prediction
Are the Raptors a good bet to cover against the Knicks tonight at 7:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Raptors are 2.5-point road favorites versus the Knicks tonight while the over/under currently sits at 211.5 points. While the point spread hasn't moved off the original number, the total has dropped from 212.5 down to 211.5.
Toronto enters play having split over its last 10 games, both on the hardwood and at the betting window. The Raptors are also 33-25 against the spread on the season, which includes a winning ATS record on the road at 16 wins and 12 losses.
New York has dropped seven of its last 10 games and is just 2-8 against the spread during that same stretch. The Knicks still own a winning ATS record on the season at 30-29, which includes a 16-14 ATS record at home.
OUR PREDICTION: You might as well keep fading the Knicks, who are just 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games overall and are 1-5 against the number in their last six home games. Their struggles go even deeper than that though. They're 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games coming off a win and are winless at 0-6 at the betting window in their last six games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous game. The Raptors, meanwhile, have covered in four of their last five games coming off a victory.
