7* Friday NBA CHA/TOR
Charlotte vs. Toronto,

Score: 78 - 92
Total: -106/+194 Under
Toronto & Charlotte under 194
The Toronto Raptors host the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday. Toronto is coming off a 112-88 loss to Boston, while Charlotte beat that same Boston team their last time out, 100-74.
Raptors coach Dwane Casey is known as one of the great defensive minds in the NBA, creating the blueprint that helped the Dallas Mavericks to their first NBA Championship in 2011.
The additions of Kyle Lowry and now Rudy Gay, along with a larger role for Amir Johnson in the absence of Andrea Bargnani, have finally given Casey the horses to play the type of basketball he wants to play.
The Bobcats were happy to end their 10-game losing streak with a win over the Celtics on Tuesday, but they were really just facing a shell of the Celtics team.
Paul Pierce was given the night offy, while Kevin Garnett saw the floor for only 20 minutes.
The Bobcats haven’t won back-to-back games since November, so don’t expect them to test the Raptors too much on this night.
Charlotte has averaged just 85.6 points per game over their last eight road contests, scoring more than 87 points in only two of those games.
The under is 3-1 in the last four meetings between these teams in Toronto. Take the UNDER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
