Raptors vs. Hawks Prediction
Will the Atlanta Hawks and Toronto Raptors find themselves in a defensive battle when they meet tonight at 8PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Atlanta is favored at home today, as the Hawks are getting odds of -6 points against the Raptors. The over/under total for the contest has been listed at 200.5 points.
Toronto is 52-25 on the season, 21-16 on the road, 42-35 against the spread and 40-36-1 with the over. Atlanta is 46-32 overall, 25-14 at home, 40-37-1 against the spread and 41-37 with the under. The Raptors have won all three games with the Hawks this season, covering the spread in all three wins as well. These two have hit the under in four of their last five meetings.
Toronto basically has nothing to play for as they've clinched second place and they have little shot of catching Cleveland. They don't need to overextend their stars Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan. These two games have gone under in four of their last five matchups and should do it once again tonight.
