Charlotte vs. Toronto
Thursday 01/14 07:35 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Charlotte +8.5 (-109) (risk 1.5 to return 2.88) RESULT: WIN
Toronto is just 2-8 this season with a 3-7 ATS record, but the linemaker still has been overvaluing the Raptors and tonight is no exception. Charlotte had won four in a row before losing to Dallas on Wednesday, shooting only 38 percent. That is well below their season average of 44 percent. The Hornets still have been playing great defense, holding opponents to just a .397 field goal percentage their last three games. Toronto lost another tough one, 112-111 at Portland, and that was after losing another one-point game at Golden State. This is the Raptors' first home game following a four-game trip. Charlotte has covered four of the last five meetings and the Hornets are 22-6-1 ATS versus teams with a .400 or less win percentage. They are also 15-5-1 ATS their last 21 as underdogs. Take the Hornets.
