Toronto Raptors vs New York Knicks Betting Picks

The Raptors have won seven of their last 10 games, while the Knicks are 2-8 over a 10-game stretch. The top basketball pick here is obviously the Raptors who are healthy again after injuries ravaged their lineup in the months of November and December.

Moneyline: Bet on NBA’s defending champ, the Raptors, at -135. As I said, Toronto is at full strength and looking like a team that can contend for the top-2 spot in the Eastern Conference.

ATS: Back the Raptors to cover a 7.5 point spread. Toronto just blew out the Sixers by 12 points in their last game. They are also 4-1 against the spread in their last five games.

TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 216.5 points. The total score went OVER in most of the Raptors’ games against sub .500 teams over the last 10 games.

Score Prediction: 120 – 103 Raptors
