Charlotte at Toronto -6 O/U 202Recommendation: Toronto
My clients and I cashed an easy winner betting against the Hornets last night. There’s little reason to think that Charlotte will be significantly more competitive as they step up in class against a focused foe on the second night of back-to-backs tonight. Let me start with an excerpt from yesterday’s write-up, with the numbers edited slightly to reflect current realities:
“Charlotte was a playoff team last year, finishing with 48 wins and the #6 seed. The markets still remember and respect that team, in some ways overshadowing the 33-41 squad from this year in the betting world. The Hornets did their best to blow a 25 point second half lead against a Suns team playing on the second night of back-2-backs in their last game, on the heels of a defensive no-show against the Cavs in their previous contest. And the betting markets are offering us legitimate value with wiseguy steam showing for Charlotte in early betting action today.”
There’s been steam on Charlotte again today, pushing the line down to -5.5 as I write this (now back to -6 at post). That Hornets $$ has come despite their no-show at home last night, allowing Milwaukee to control the flow throughout in a double digit home loss. And make no mistake about it – the Raptors are coming to play tonight!
Toronto head coach Dwane Casey following the Raptors lethargic win over Orlando on Monday: "It was brother-in-law basketball. We'll take the win, but we can't be happy with our defensive performance, trading baskets like that. We have bigger goals in mind and, if we intend on achieving them, we have to have a better mindset than we had tonight defensively….that's our challenge -- to have that mindset every game, not just when our backs are against the wall. But it has to be a habit, and (Monday) we took a step back.”
Expect a step forward here!
