Raptors vs. Hawks Prediction & Pick

Neither team has excelled this season, as both enter Saturday multiple games below .500. The Raptors at least seem to be turning things around after three straight wins by double digits, albeit two of those came against the last-place Charlotte Hornets.

The Hawks, on the other hand, have won three of their last four road games and are looking to keep that trend going on Saturday.

It's hard to figure out which team has the edge here. Atlanta has a solid offense (11th in points scored) but struggles on defense (21st in points allowed), while the opposite is true for Toronto. The Hawks also play at a fast pace (ninth), while the Raptors like to slow things down (27th).

Overall, it seems that Toronto has a slight advantage. The Raptors will bog down the Hawks' offense and contain them with their defense, enabling Toronto to prevail at home.

Final Score Prediction: Raptors: 117 | Hawks: 112

Raptors vs. Hawks Best Bet

While the Raptors should win, asking them to win by at least seven is a lot. These teams are evenly matched and this game should be close. The Hawks are capable of winning outright or at least keeping the score tight enough to cover, so take the points with Atlanta.

Bet: Atlanta Hawks +7 (-110)
