The Raptors are in Indiana the night before but win or lose it should not have too much of an impact in this one. They are the far superior and deeper team and the travel isn’t too bad with this being a night game. Toronto could easily dominate without having to get too too much from their starting lineup. If they lose in Indiana they will be angry.
Atlanta has the worst record in the league and that is no fluke. Most nights they are getting hammered by foes too and they play on Friday night too.
The Raptors were going really well until their clunker against New York. Essentially it was on monumentally bad quarter that sunk them but this group shas proven to be pretty consistent this season. Among the best in the Eastern Conference.
Toronto has really picked up the pace this season. They are in the Top 5 in scoring and that is despite the fact that they have not been efficient from beyond the arc. They are committed to taking those shots though.
Their efficiency inside is very high though. DeMar DeRozan remains one of the bets mid range players in the league and the Raptors are good at getting into the paint and forcing teams to commit.
This is a matchup where the Raptors might want to go inside more. Jonas Valanciunas gets forgotted some nights but on a back to back and at a slower pace he can be really effective.
The Raptors bench might be the best in the NBA. They are likely to take whatever lead the starters given them and add to it.
This is not a talented or deep Atlanta team. The one area they might have some strength is shooting from deep but they are going to live or die (mostly die) on the shooting prowess of Marco Bellinelli, Taurean Prince, Luke Babbitt and others. Do any of those names really scare you?
Dennis Schroeder is really quick and long and is having a nice season. He can certainly penetrate the defense and create open looks for those mentioned above and others as well as create his own offense. The real problem is he can’t pass the ball to himself. When others have it there is not a lot of reason to play great defense.
Even though it is going to be a long season the Hawks are still exerting good effort and they have been able to surprise, like when they beat Cleveland on the road. Rookie John Collins is getting more and more comfortable in the NBA and might be another player to build around. He is a more traditional post player.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
There won’t be a line posted here until both of the teams finish their games. The number seems pretty predictable though. Toronto will be favoured by at least a couple of possessions.
Toronto has been a solid bet all season long including on the road. This game looks like it could be a bit trappy though.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -7
This is a must win for Toronto. Look for them to be extra sharp early to get it done but there might be some leakage late. If it is over 10 take a pass.
