Toronto vs. New Orleans, 02/29/2012 20:00
Point Spread: -3/-108 New Orleans
The New Orleans Hornets have quietly been a covering machine of late. Getting the Hornets as a 3-point home favorite tonight over the lowly Toronto Raptors is an absolute gift from odds makers. I fully expect them to win this game and cover this generously small spread.
New Orleans is 4-3 SU and a perfect 7-0 ATS in their last seven games overall. Six of those seven games came on the road, including wins over the Bucks, Knicks and Cavaliers. Their only losses were on the road to Oklahoma City, Indiana and Chicago, all by single-digits. That's pretty impressive considering the Thunder, Pacers and Bulls are three of the best teams in the league.
This home game against Toronto, in my opinion, is the easiest game they have faced during this stretch. The Raptors are 10-24 on the season, including 5-13 on the road where they are getting outscored by 8.2 points/game. They really struggle offensively away from home, putting up a mere 86.6 points/game on 41.6 percent shooting. The Hornets only yield 91.7 points/game at home. Bet New Orleans Wednesday.
