NBA Free Pick: Raptors at Nets

Brooklyn is being slightly over-valued in this spot so I think it’s a good time to take the Raptors. Brooklyn has now won six in a row and four at the pay window. They are coming off a big win against the Indiana Pacers and have a home-and-home on deck with the Atlanta Hawks. Both of these teams are a bigger threat to the Nets in the East than the Raptors, who are at the bottom of the Atlantic division.

However, before the loss on Sunday to the Bucks, Toronto had been playing pretty solid. They beat Charlotte and Philadelphia by holding them to just 72 and 78 points. This team has quietly won 10 of their last 14 games, so they are fairly hot themselves even though they aren’t getting the attention Brooklyn is.

This is a short trip for Toronto so I don’t think the home court advantage will be that significant for the Nets tonight, so I’ll take the points with the road dog as the Nets are just 30-46 ATS the last three years against teams with a losing record and 4-17 ATS at home after a game in which they covered the spread.
