Knicks Have Dropped Seven Straight to Raptors

While the Boston Celtics and their impressive winning streak are grabbing all of the headlines in the Eastern Conference, the Toronto Raptors have quietly been playing some excellent basketball of late. Toronto will look to keep up its winning ways when the New York Knicks travel to Canada on Friday.

MyBookie opened the Raps as 8-point home favorites with a total of 217.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games after consecutive ATS wins.
  • The total has gone OVER in 15 of the Raptors' last 21 games as favorite.
  • The total has gone OVER in eight of the Knicks' last 10 games on the road against the Raptors.

The Raptors have scored at least 119 points in each of their wins during a 4-1 SU stretch, with the lone setback coming against the Celtics on Sunday. Toronto won both ends of a back-to-back at Houston and at home vs New Orleans while scoring an average of 127 points in those contests. The Dinos have long dominated the Knicks, winning each of their previous seven vs New York.

The post-Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony era in New York is clearly off to a good start. The Knicks have won eight of their last 11 heading into this one with seven of those wins coming at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks were ridiculed for signing Tim Hardaway Jr. to a massive offer sheet in the offseason but the former Atlanta Hawk has proven his worth so far thanks to averages of 17.8 points and 3.1 assists per game while hitting a massive 3-point to lift his team to a 106-101 win over Utah on Wednesday.

Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry struggled with his shot at the start of the year but has seemingly found his groove over the last few weeks. The veteran was shooting 37.6 percent from the floor as of November 5 but has hit at a 48.3 percent clip while averaging 18 points in five games since.

Toronto has flat-out dominated divisional opponents at home over the years, evidenced by the Raptors going 16-0 SU against Atlantic Division foes north of the border.
