Toronto on a hot streak

The Raptors are on a four-game win streak right now following a 121-109 win over the Magic at home on Sunday. They have covered the spread in the last three games. Toronto is 55-23 on the season, 24-14 on the road, 35-43 against the spread and 43-33-2 with the over. The Raptors are second in the East right now, 3 games out of first with 4 games to play.

Toronto is putting up 114.4 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.3 percent from the field. Defensively, Toronto is giving up 108.4 points per game while opponents shoot 45 percent from the floor. Kawhi Leonard is leading the team with 26.8 points and 7.4 rebounds per game while Pascal Siakam is adding 16.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest.

Nets fall at home

Brooklyn is coming off a 131-121 loss at home to Milwaukee on Sunday. The Nets have lost three of their last four games, but have covered the spread in five of their last seven. Brooklyn is 39-39 on the season, 22-17 at home, 42-36 against the spread and 40-38 with the over. The Nets are seventh in the East right now, ½ a game out of sixth and only 1 game ahead of ninth.

The Nets are putting up 112.1 points per game on offense while shooting 44.9 percent from the field. Defensively, Brooklyn is giving up 112.5 points per game while opponents shoot 45.6 percent from the floor. D’Angelo Russell is leading the team with 21 points and 7.0 assists per game. Spencer Dinwiddie is adding 17.2 points and 4.6 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Raptors are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games and 41-20 ATS in their last 61 division games.


The Nets are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 Wednesday games, but just 2-7 ATS in their last nine conference games.


The home team has won all three games this season in this series and Brooklyn has covered in two of the three. While Toronto is riding a 4-game win streak, the wins have come against the likes of the Bulls, Knicks and Magic. Brooklyn is playing better basketball than those teams, especially at home. That includes a 110-96 win at home over Boston last weekend. I am going to take my chances on the Nets as a slight home dog.
