Charlotte Hornets vs Toronto Raptors. Wednesday January 8, 2020, 7:00 PM (EST). Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC.

The Toronto Raptors are on the road for a clash with the Charlotte Hornets. Who will win tonight’s Raptors or Hornets NBA game against the spread? – read below in our prediction.

Charlotte Hornets 15-24 (18-19-2 ATS)

“Hornet” are trying to keep up with the leading eight of the East, but recently the team’s game does not please at all. Of course, they don’t expect something incredible from James Borrego’s wards, especially after Kemb Walker left, but when you can catch on to the playoff zone, you need to use it.

“Charlotte” lost in the previous meeting to “Indiana” (104-115), though such a result was quite predictable. “Hornets” can hardly be called a home team, but do not forget that “Toronto” also has a lot of problems, so the hosts hope at least for an equal fight.

Toronto Raptors 24-13 (21-16 ATS)

The Canadian team lagged behind the top 3 of the East, and all because of problems with the roster. At the moment, there are five players at once in the Raptors injury list , three of which are key players, so the result has not been impressive lately.

” Toronto” lost their previous match to “Portland”, although it took the “Blazers” in the home arena (99-101). The Reptiles are clearly waiting for a tough confrontation against the Hornets, so all hope is for Kyle Lowry, who alone carries the team, because there is no other way out.
