Raptors Have Been an Awful Bet vs Knicks

The Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks have been on opposite ends of the spectrum in the Eastern Conference standings this season, however, it’s been a different story at the betting window when these teams collide. The Raptors are a paltry 1-7 ATS in their last eight clashes with their division rivals, but will be looking to improve on that mark Monday at Madison Square Garden.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games with no days off between games.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Raptors' last five games against the Knicks.
  • The Knicks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after an ATS win.

Betting on the Knicks is a scary thought right now though, as New York is 1-7 SU and 1-6-1 ATS in their previous eight heading into this one. The Knickerbockers opened as 4-point home dogs for the affair at most sportsbooks.

Totals bettors will want to pay attention to the opening number of 199. In the Knicks’ previous 10 when facing a closing total of 200.5 or less, the OVER is 7-3.

Toronto is coming off a 98-85 home victory over Memphis and will be playing in the second portion of back-to-back games. The Raps held the Grizzlies to just 36.8 percent shooting, with the Grizz going 3 for 20 from 3-point range.
