Why the Hornets can cover

Charlotte was eliminated from the playoffs, but that didn’t stop the Hornets from setting up one of their best streaks of the season at the end of March. They have won four of five games, upsetting the Mavericks twice as double-digit underdogs during that streak. Their eventual win came in a 137-134 loss to Oklahoma City as 10-point underdogs last Tuesday.

The Hornets narrowly failed to cover as 15-point underdogs on Sunday, but small forward Svi Mykhailiuk scored a career-high 26 points on 10 of 17 shots. He went 5 of 9 from 3-point range, while rookie center Mark Williams had a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Charlotte has covered in four of its last six home games against the Raptors, who are just 1-6 in their last seven road games. Toronto could also be shorthanded with OG Anunoby (ankle) and Gary Trent Jr. (back) both questionable.

Why the Raptors can cover

Charlotte is currently playing with a greatly reduced roster, missing LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, Kelly Oubre Jr., Gordon Hayward and PJ Washington. The Hornets have lost their last two games by more than 20 points and will struggle to compete without their top five scorers. Toronto is moving in the opposite direction, having won four of its last five games to secure a spot in the Eastern Conference play-off tournament.

The Raptors can boost their chances of advancing if they can secure the No. 8 seed, for which they are tied with Atlanta in the standings. They have already won the first three games of the season series against Charlotte. Pascal Siakam scored 36 points in Sunday’s blowout victory, leading Toronto in points in all three meetings with the Hornets this season.
