This line makes absolutely no sense as the Knicks are the hottest ream in the league and winning their last 5 games by an average of 13.2 points. The Toronto Raptors can't get out of their own way with 6 straight losses, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 7 points. The Knicks win in the favorite role by an average of 9.9 points. I don't care about the back to back. This line is soft. Give me the Knicks.
