INJURY TO WATCH
Hornets center Cody Zeller has missed the last two games with a knee injury and is questionable to play today. For the Raptors, small forward OG Anunoby missed the last game with a sprained ankle and will be out again today.
The Raptors are fantastic at home with a 25-5 straight up record on the season, while they are also above average ATS with a 31-29-1 start. Meanwhile, Charlotte is bad on the road with a 10-20 straight up record. Charlotte is also 30-32-1 ATS. Toronto has already blown out Charlotte three times this season, winning by at least 13 points each time. Why not make it four here? Toronto has won three in a row and aside from an OT loss at home to Milwaukee, has been beating everyone lately. I like them in this spot too. Try to catch them at -8.5.
