The Raptors have a chance to close out their first-round series at home tonight. But is there value on the spread with them slated as double-digit favorites? Our analysts discuss.

Betting Trends to Know

Only 11 teams have rallied from down 3-1 in a best-of-seven NBA series, and only three pulled it off by winning Game 7 on the road.John Ewing

The Raptors wiped the floor with Orlando in Game 4, winning by 22 points. The Magic are 9-4 against the spread in games against conference opponents the game after losing by double-digits, covering by an average of 3.1 points to make them the NBA’s most profitable team in this spot. Evan Abrams

Since 2005, teams favored by double-digits in a Game 5 are 25-1 straight up, winning by 14.4 points per game. The lone team to lose straight up at home in a Game 5? The Pistons as 11-point favorites in 2006 to LeBron James and the Cavaliers. Abrams
