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.

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.

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.
