Pick ATS: Nets -3

Heading into Sunday’s afternoon game, the Nets are currently three point favorites over the Raptors. Brooklyn is 2-2 against the spread in their last four games, despite winning all four by a comfortable margin. The Nets should be at full strength as the only notable injury is Nic Claxton.

However, Brooklyn has struggled recently against Toronto as they are 1-4 ATS in their last five games. Additionally, the Nets are 1-13 straight against the Raptors on the road and 1-6 straight up in their last seven games vs. Toronto.

The Raptors are looking to bounce back after their tough loss to the Cavs the other night. Toronto is 4-2 ATS in their last six games, but have struggled at home with a 1-8 ATS in their last nine games at ScotiaBank Arena. With this being the first game of a back-to-back for Brooklyn, they would like get a win before heading to Chicago. Take the Nets and the points in what should be an exciting game.

Over/Under: Under 209.5

This season, the under has been very profitable between both squads. The Raptors’ over record is 4-6 As for the Nets, the over has not been good to them as they are a league-worst 1-8, tied with the Denver Nuggets.
