Hawks at Raptors: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Raptors 114, Hawks 107
Money line (ML)
The RAPTORS (-125) are the pick without a whole lot of conviction. The spread represents better value as the -125 tag is a steep price to pay for a losing team playing a division rival eight games ahead in the standings.
Toronto is also 0-2 against Atlanta this season while losing by scores of 132-121 and 121-120.
It comes down to injuries and there just aren’t enough healthy bodies suiting up for ATL. Wait until closer to game time for more clarity on the injury report but enough players are already ruled out to back the host Raps.
Against the spread (ATS)
The RAPTORS -1.5 (-110) should be backed to win by at least two points. Their recent wins came as favorites against the Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards, and as 3-point underdogs against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Despite the overall struggles, they’ve beaten the teams they should, other than the injury-ravaged Los Angeles Lakers last Tuesday. They’ll be able to handle the shorthanded Hawks.
A soft lean to the UNDER 223.5 (-110). Unders are typically overbet in games with injury lists such as this one but Toronto has been held to 103 or fewer points in three of its last five games and has held the opposition to 110 or fewer points in four of its last six outings.
Atlanta has given up 111 or fewer points in five of its last six games and scored just 105 points in Sunday’s win.
