Toronto enters with a 20-8 overall record and 16-12 ATS after a 108-93 home victory over the Kings, its third straight win. Charlotte is 11-19 overall and 12-16-2 ATS following a 109-91 home victory over the Knicks. The Raptors won the first meeting this season by a count of 126-113 on their home court back on Nov. 29.

Bet on Raptors vs. Hornets 

Charlotte is going to find the road a lot more difficult to navigate against a healthy Raptors team rather than a Knicks squad missing their biggest star in Kristaps Porzingis. Charlotte has struggled to put together any sort of consistency this season and it is unlikely to start against one of the Eastern Conference's best teams. Bet on Toronto to cover on the road.
