2 units on New Orleans PICK (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: LOSS
I know, I know - how can I back the Hornets. But, this is really a pick against the Raptors on the road. Toronto is 6-23 straight-up on the road this season, partly because they allow 101 points per game. They also play down to their competition, going 5-18 ATS versus terrible teams (those outscored by their opponents by 6+ points/game) over the last 3 seasons. They are also 3-10 ATS this season as a road underdog of 6 points or less. As bad as they are, the Hornets are 19-8 ATS revenging a loss this season. Two stars on New Orleans to get the home win.
