The Hornets are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-3-2 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Raptors are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Hornets last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Raptors last 5 home games. The Hornets are 18-8 ATS in the last 26 meetings in Toronto and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The over is 11-5-1 in the last 17 meetings.

The Toronto Raptors should be favored because they’re at home and the better team, as the Hornets are a complete mess. However, let’s not act like the Raptors are tearing things up, as they’re 6 games below a .500 record and win in the favorite role by an average of just 1.6 points. I’m not laying this many points with the Raptors regardless of whom they’re playing. It’s Hornets or pass for me.
