Bet on Knicks vs. Raptors

The Knicks have been a pleasant surprise this season and this is a chance for them to prove something against one of the Eastern Conference's better teams. Porzingis has carried the Knicks on his back a lot this time, but he has been getting plenty of help lately especially from Hardaway Jr. Our pick is for the Knicks to cover here in what is shaping up to be a fun game to watch.
