NBA Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The rebuilding Hawks club is 20-44 straight up and 33-29-2 against the spread this season. The under is 6-1 in Atlanta’s last seven games and 34-29-1 overall.

The Hawks haven’t had much luck recently against the Raptors. They’re 4-11 ATS in the last 15 matchups and 1-4 ATS in their last five trips to Toronto.

The Raptors are 11-1 SU and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following Sunday’s home victory against the Charlotte Hornets. The Raps failed to cover as 8.5-point favourites and their season ATS mark dropped to 35-27.

Toronto is 26-5 SU and 17-14 ATS in its 31 games at the ACC. The Dinos are still in first place in the Eastern Conference and the fifth favourite to win the NBA championship on the Sports Interaction futures board at +1100. The Boston Celtics (+1000) and Cleveland Cavaliers (+500) both have a better chance of winning the title than the Raptors according to the oddsmakers.

Atlanta Hawks

Atlanta is ploughing through its youth movement campaign with mixed results. The squad is on pace to win 26 games – which is on par with what oddsmakers projected for Atlanta in their NBA season win totals.

The Hawks are led by point guard Dennis Schroder, who is putting up decent counting stats and is cutting down on turnovers but still can’t shoot a lick beyond the arc. Youngsters Taurean Prince and John Collins are showing promise but the Hawks are still looking for a cornerstone player to build around moving forward. They’re hoping to get that player in the upcoming draft.

Toronto Raptors

Toronto centre Jonas Valanciunas scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds on Sunday and had his best game in nearly a month. The Raptors don’t need as much from the big man with major contributions off the bench from Jakob Poeltl and Pascal Siakam. The competition for minutes at the pivot spot between Valanciunas and Poeltl will be worth watching as the Raptors inch closer to the postseason.
