The Atlanta Hawks continue on the road and will travel to Toronto to take on the Raptors at the Scotiabank Arena on Monday night. These teams faced each other 4 times last season and the Raptors led 3-1 and won both of their meetings at home.
The Raptors get here with a 3-3 record overall and are 2-1 at home so far ranking 3rd in the Atlantic Division. In their last game, they lost 112-90 at home against the Philadelphia 76ers. Pascal Siakam had 26 points and 10 rebounds, O.G. Anunoby scored 19 points and Scottie Barnes had 13 for the Raptors, who lost for the first time in three home games. Fred VanVleet shot 0 for 11, going 0 for 8 from 3-point range and he's questionable for this game.
Defensively, the team has been good as they are holding their opponents to 106 points per game.
In their last 10 games, the Raptors are 5-5, averaging 104.2 points, 47.1 rebounds, 23.5 assists, 8.6 steals and 4.4 blocks per game while shooting 46.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 106.3 points per game.
The Hawks have won 4 of their first 6 games of the season and are 2-1 on the road so far. They have a 4-2 record overall record ranking 1st in the Southeast division. They're coming from a loss against the Bucks on the road where Dejounte Murray scored 21, Hunter 14 and Clint Capela 11 for the Hawks who lost the game 123-115.
Young is shooting 33.3% from beyond the arc with 3 made 3-pointers per game for the Hawks, while averaging 31.5 points and 10.3 assists. J. Collins is averaging 9.5 rebounds over the last 4 games for Atlanta.
In their last 10 games the Hawks are 5-5, averaging 109.8 points, 43.4 rebounds, 25.8 assists, 8.7 steals and 3.7 blocks per game while shooting 48.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 111.4 points.
Atlanta are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games against Toronto.
Atlanta are 4-13 SU in their last 17 games against Toronto.
Atlanta are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.
Atlanta are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Toronto.
Toronto are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Toronto's last 11 games.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Toronto's last 10 games against Atlanta.
Toronto are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games at home.
The Raptors are having a tough schedule so far as they have faced some of the best teams in the league but their great defense is what is keeping them competitive in the games. The Hawks have done a good job so far winning 4 of their first 6 games but have covered the spread only twice. The Raptors dominated the Hawks last season beating them in 3 of 4 times and they get here with a one more day of rest than them. The Hawks are playing their 4th straight game on the road and will face one of the best defensive teams in the NBA so I expect a low scoring game. Take the under.
PICK: Under 223 (-110)
