The Toronto Raptors ant the Charlotte Hornets duke it out at the Spectrum Center on Monday night.

The Toronto Raptors have been in great shape as they’ve won six of their past seven games and they will be looking to build on their current five-game win streak after taking down the Hawks in a 125-114 home win on Friday. Pascal Siakam led the team with 33 points, nine rebounds and four assists on 11 of 16 shooting, Fred VanVleet added 26 points with 11 assists, Gary Trent Jr. scored 19 points while Scottie Barnes chipped in with 16 points, nine rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Raptors shot a healthy 56 percent from the field and 17 of 27 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 39 points in the first quarter to take the early lead, before pouring in another 36 points in the third quarter to put the game to bed early.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in a real slump as they’ve lost six of their past eight games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a four-game slide after getting routed by the Heat in a 104-86 home loss on Saturday. Terry Rozier led the team with 16 points, Miles Bridges added 15 points with five assists and four blocks while LaMelo Ball chipped in with 12 points. As a team, the Hornets shot just 38 percent from the field and 10 of 36 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in control after taking a five-point lead into halftime, but all their hard work went down the drain in the third quarter where they were outscored by an appalling 35-8. Kelly Oubre Jr. had a night to forget as he finished with just nine points on three of 15 shooting while Gordon Hayward finished scoreless on zero of seven shooting.

Looking at the betting trends, the Raptors are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games against a team with a winning record and 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Hornets are 0-5 ATS in their last five home games, 18-7 ATS in their last 25 games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the over is 11-3-1 in the last 15 meetings overall, the Raptors are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings overall and the Raptors are 5-12 ATS in the last 17 meetings in Charlotte.

The Raptors are coming into this meeting with plenty of momentum as they’ve now won five in a row after taking down the streaking Hawks on Friday. In contrast, the Hornets have really struggled lately as they’ve lost four in a row and were just blown out by the shorthanded Heat in their last outing. The Raptors are 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games against a team with a winning record and they are clearly the team in better form, so I think the Raptors represent decent value as underdogs in this spot.
