I’m not sure if you remember the last time the Hawks met up with the Raptors but I can guarantee you Mike Budenholzer does. Toronto won that game 128-84, the biggest margin of victory a Raptors has had – ever. Pretty embarrassing for Atlanta but with their current 2-8 skid, it’s not looking like the Hawks will get much revenge tonight.
– Shark BITES
- The Raptors are 8-0 SU and ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite of 7.5 or more.
- The Hawks are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games on the road after covering in their most recent road game.
- The Hawks are 1-6 SU and ATS in their last 7 games on the road against the Raptors.
Although they still actually have to play the game – the trends are clearly pointing in one direction. The Raptors are tied with the Cavaliers for the most wins in the Eastern Conference and have now won four straight games. They’ve won nine of their last 10 games and might be the hottest team in the league.
To go along with their stellar straight up record, the Raps have been an incredibly profitable bet at the window. They’ve gone 18-6-1 against the spread this season and have covered in 11 of their last 12 games.
Toronto’s offense has been off the walls incredible during their current run and Atlanta’s defense has been off the walls dreadful. If the Raps don’t win and cover tonight it will be a huge shocker to this writer.
