Raptors vs Hornets News and Preview | NBA Picks

Anyways, in the Raptors’ 125-114 home win over the Hawks on Friday, center Pascal Siakim scored a team-high 33 points in 40 minutes on the court. Guard Fred VanVleet ended his performance with another career double-double as well. He amassed 26 points, 4.0 rebounds and 11 assists in 38 minutes played. Toronto has won seven of its past 10 contests. In addition to winning their last five consecutive games, the Raptors are 12-11 away, 16-12 at home and 13-9-1 ATS on the road.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, in the Hornets’ 104-86 loss at home against the Heat, guard Terry Rozier led his team in scoring, putting up 16 points in 32 minutes of action. Forward Miles Bridges contributed 15 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 33 minutes played, too. While the Raptors keep winning, the Hornets are in a slump. On top of their four-game losing streak, Charlotte is 14-10 at home, 14-16 away and 15-9 ATS at home this season.

According to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, the Hornets have a 61.8% probability of winning. 

Concerning other head-to-head meetings, in the last three head-to-head meetings, the Raptors are 2-1 versus the Hornets. On Jan. 25, 2022, the first meeting during this regular season, Toronto won 125-113 at Scotiabank Arena. The Hornets have not defeated them since Mar. 13, 2021, when they won 114-104 at Spectrum Center.

In other news, Raptors’ guard Fred VanVleet was asked about his team’s roster changes before the trade deadline on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 3 p.m. ET. “I think that we have a solid core,” said VanVleet. “If we’re talking about building a championship-caliber team, I think we definitely need some additions, but that can come in a lot of different ways.”

Raptors vs Hornets Prediction | NBA Picks

Moreover, in the 2021-22 NBA regular season, Toronto is 17-7 as a favorite, 11-16 as an underdog and 13-9-1 ATS away, whereas Charlotte is 11-7 as a favorite, 17-19 as an underdog and 15-9 ATS at home. The Hornets are due for another win, but they are currently on a four-game skid. Needless to say, the team is in a bad spot right now, especially considering the Raptors are on a five-game winning streak. Their last five wins have come against the Hawks, Bulls and Heat.

Leading into tonight’s intraconference rematch, Charlotte is a two-point underdog. Goran Dragic is the only player listed out on the Raptors’ injury report, while Jaden McDaniels remains out for the Hornets. Charlotte could win its first game since Jan. 28. Therefore, pick the Hornets to win, they will cover the spread and the total will go under 225.5. Before placing a bet, check out our handicap betting guide. Other NBA Picks are on the main page.
