Raptors at Hawks picks and predictions

Prediction

Hawks 116, Raptors 114

Moneyline

PASS.

The Hawks (-220) should win, but they’re being overpriced on the ML. Look to the spread or the total for better opportunities.

Against the spread

BET RAPTORS +5.5 (-110).

G Fred VanVleet, F Scottie Barnes and Anunoby should be able to carry the load offensively and keep this game close in the absence of Siakam and Trent. The market is overreacting to the injury report and Toronto should have no problem covering as a 5.5-point underdog. Take the points.

Over/Under

BET OVER 225.5 (-115).

Neither team has played well defensively as of late. The Over is 4-1 in Toronto’s last 5 games and 2-1 in Atlanta’s last 3 games…
