NBA Odds: Raptors vs Hornets

Charlotte Hornets Kemba Walker

In the wake of a forgettable loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday, the Toronto Raptors will need to wipe the slate clean and start fresh Thursday when they take on the Hornets in Charlotte. Despite the loss, the Raps have played well even without injured key players Jonas Valanciunas and DeMarre Carroll, winning eight of 12 games since the big Lithuanian went down with a hand injury.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings with the Hornets in Charlotte.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Raptors last 5 games overall.
  • The Hornets are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games vs the Atlantic Division.

The Hornets are no slouch, however. Playing in its second game of a back to back stint, Charlotte features four guards averaging in double figures scoring led by Nicolas Batum and Kemba Walker. The Hornets have dropped two straight to the Magic and Celtics after claiming four in a row.

When the Raps and Hornets get together at Time Warner Cable Arena, tight games tend to follow. Of the last seven meetings between the clubs in North Carolina, six have been decided by six points or less.
