UNDERs Aplenty When Raps, Hawks Meet

Jeff Teague Bismack Biyombo

The Atlanta Hawks are cruising at the right time and will be looking to collect their 13th win in 15 games when they square off with the Toronto Raptors north of the border on Wednesday. UNDER bettors love when these squads collide, as the UNDER is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between the Eastern Conference foes.

Shark Bites
  • The Hawks are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 2.0 or less.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Raptors' last three games with a closing total of 200 or more.
  • The Raptors are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games against teams with winning records.

Currently sitting comfortably in the third seed, the Hawks will be in tough to leapfrog into the second spot. Four of Atlanta’s remaining seven games are against the Raptors and Cavaliers.

Is Toronto running out of steam to end the year? It’s possible. The Dinos are a measly 1-4 ATS in their previous five, but bigger questions surround the franchise’s star player Kyle Lowry. Lowry, who shot 4-of-14 in Monday’s 119-100 setback to Oklahoma City, had to have his right elbow drained after the game stemming from inflammation he experienced in January.

Raps head coach Dwane Casey has not been shy about his intent to rest players as the season winds down, meaning there’s a good chance the point guard will not play tonight.

Recent history shows us the Hawks have had all sorts of troubles when facing the Raptors. Atlanta is 0-3 in their last three versus Toronto, with the Raptors holding the Hawks to 87.3 points per game on 37 percent shooting.
