The Raptors are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The Knicks are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 Monday games and 23-11 ATS in their last 34 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Raptors last 5 road games. The under is 5-2 in Knicks last 7 home games. The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York.

The New York Knicks are obviously the better team here, and the Raptors have had serious offensive issues up to this point. However, the Knicks aren't a team I like backing in the big favorite role, as they grind a lot of games out. The Raptors defense has also improved lately, and they've somehow managed to win three straight games. Too many points for my taste. I'll take a stab with the Raptors here.
