Bet Tonight's NBA Action

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.
