The Nets are 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 games following a ATS win. The Raptors are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 9-3 in Nets last 12 Friday games. The under is 4-1 in Raptors last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Nets are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Toronto and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

The Brooklyn Nets are playing their best ball of the season right now, and I'm looking to back them whenever underdogs or soft favorites. This checks one of those boxes. The Toronto Raptors have been hit or miss all season long, and their defense continues to be an issue. The Nets have won 6 of the last 8 meetings against the Raptors, and that includes a 9 point win a couple of weeks ago. Give me the Nets and the soft line.
