NBA Odds for Sunday, March 3, 2024

Charlotte Hornets at Toronto Raptors

CHA @ TOR Odds

  • Opening Point-Spread: Raptors -7.5
  • Opening Money-Line: Raptors -290
  • Opening Total: 221.5
  • Time: 6:00 p.m. ET

The Hornets and Raptors meet for the final time this season as Toronto has taken two of the first three matchups.

Toronto outlasted Charlotte at Spectrum Center last month, 123-117, but the Hornets cashed as seven-point underdogs.

The Hornets have lost three straight games, all as double-digit underdogs to the Bucks twice and 76ers. After getting blown out twice by Milwaukee, Charlotte managed a cover at Philadelphia as 12-point underdogs on Friday.

Forward Scottie Barnes is sidelined indefinitely for Toronto with a broken hand suffered in Friday's loss to Golden State.

The Raptors fell to 1-5 in the last six home games, while owning an 0-3 ATS mark as a six-point favorite or more in the last three opportunities.

New York Knicks at Cleveland Cavaliers

NY @ CLE Odds

  • Opening Point-Spread: Cavaliers -6.5
  • Opening Money-Line: Cavaliers -250
  • Opening Total: 213.5
  • Time: 7:00 p.m. ET

The Knicks are hitting the road on Sunday evening and it's probably not the worst thing in the world after suffering through a 1-3 homestand. 

New York stumbled through February by losing eight of their final 11 games, capped off by double-digit setbacks to the Pelicans and Warriors.

To make matters worse, New York has not done well against the point spread in this span by covering one time in 11 tries, which came in the blowout win at Philadelphia right after the All-Star break.

Cleveland snapped a seven-game streak in which it failed to cover the spread as the Cavaliers topped the Pistons, 110-100 on Friday as seven-point favorites.

Although the Cavs haven't been great in that department lately, they continue to win games by going 21-6 since the start of January to pull atop the Central alongside Milwaukee.

The two teams have split a pair of matchups this season with the road squad winning each time. The Knicks won in Cleveland on Halloween night, 109-91 as Jalen Brunson paced New York with 19 points.

In the second matchup the next night at Madison Square Garden, the Cavs held on for a 95-89 victory behind 30 points from Donovan Mitchell.

The Knicks are currently on a 7-1 run to the Under the last eight games, while New York and Cleveland have hit the Under in seven consecutive matchups.
