Prediction

The Hawks have been up and down this season and have lost 14 of their last 19 games against the Raptors. They will be playing on b2b games and barely beat a shorthanded Pacers team on Friday.  The Raptors have won 3 games in a row and are 5-1 ats in their last 6 games at home vs Hawks. Atlanta is allowing over 118 points on the road while the Raptors are allowing 110 points at home and destroyed the Hawks earlier this season at home so I'll go with the Raptors to beat them again.
