Streaking Raps are the Hottest NBA Bet

Robin Lopez DeMar DeRozan

Have you paid attention to the Toronto Raptors as of late? If not, it’s about time you did. The Raps are the hottest team in the NBA on the floor and at the betting window, as the Dinos have won nine straight games while covering the spread in eight of those contests. Canada’s lone basketball club will have an opportunity to set a franchise record for consecutive wins tonight when they welcome the New York Knicks to the Air Canada Centre.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 0-4 SU in their last four games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Raptors' last seven games.
  • The Knicks are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against their division.

The Dinos are hitting their stride at the right time but could be without All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry for the matchup. Lowry, who is officially listed as questionable, left the game late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s victory over the Washington Wizards with a hand injury after getting tangled up with Marcin Gortat. Backup guard Cory Joseph is a solid replacement if Lowry does miss the game, however the Dinos will be hard pressed to replace Lowry’s 20.9 points, 6.4 assists and 2.2 steals per game.

The Knicks have had the edge in this series, however. New York has covered the spread in six of their last seven meetings with the Raptors. The OVER has also paid out in each of the previous four contests between the Eastern Conference clubs.
