NBA: Raptors look to extend winning streak

Toronto Raptors overcame Chicago Bulls 127-120 in overtime on Thursday to record a fourth straight win and now entertain Atlanta Hawks in one of nine NBA games on Friday.

The Raptors are 4/5 to win in the Money Line, while the Hawks can be backed at 21/20.

Toronto's winning run has seen them move up to seventh spot in the Eastern Conference and they are just a game-and-a-half behind Brooklyn Nets immediately above them in the final automatic play-off place.

Recent Raptors win a factor

Toronto won in Atlanta just three days ago, but that is the Hawks' only loss in their last nine games and they are two-and-a-half games behind the Raptors in 10th, the final play-in spot.

The Nets are dealing with a number of injury issues and have lost their last six games, however, they head to Utah Jazz on Friday boosted by having both Kyrie Irving and Hames Harden available.

Utah are without key pair Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, but they did snap their own five-game losing run by seeing off Denver Nuggets at home in their last game.
