The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Raptors last 4 games following a straight up loss. The Nets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Raptors are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Brooklyn. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn Nets have shot the ball extremely well this preseason and have actually been one of the more consistent teams in meaningless play the last couple of years. The Toronto Raptors have had a weird preseason schedule and the lack of consistent games could impact their performance and prevent a rhythm. Either way, the Nets at home in their current form is worth laying the small number.
