Raptors Have Great ATS Record vs Hawks

A pair of defenses heading in opposite directions collide on Thursday when the Atlanta Hawks travel north of the border to take on the Toronto Raptors. Atlanta has the best defensive net rating in the NBA since the calendar flipped to 2016, while the Raptors have been horrid on that end, surrendering at least 100 points to opposing teams in eight of their last 10.

  • The total has gone OVER in three of the Raptors' last four games with a closing total of 199.0 or more.
