Toronto Raptors Vs. Boston Celtics – NBA Consensus Betting Picks | Betting Odds
A couple nights ago Kyrie Irving confessed he was tired of losing. Now Irving and the Celtics will have a massive challenge to avoid a fourth straight loss when they host the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Toronto Raptors. Boston is seven games behind Toronto in the standings. That seems like a lot considering the Celtics were the top favorites to win the East when the season started. At this moment, the Celtics don’t look like a team that will be in contention for NBA finals berth when the postseason hits.
Toronto Raptors Vs. Boston Celtics Predictions
Their last three losses were all against mediocre teams trying to stay about .500. Boston failed to cover the spread against Miami as a 2.5-point favorite, they failed against Orlando as a 7.5-favorite and on Monday night against Brooklyn as a 4.5-point favorite as well. “I can’t really put my finger on it,” Celtics’ Marcus Morris said. “Yeah, kind of surprised because I thought we were moving in a good direction.”
Toronto won’t care if the Celtics are going through a rough patch. The Raptors are merely rolling and look like the best team in the East, if not the best team in the NBA. They have won seven of their last eight games, including five in a row entering this meeting in Boston. Over those five wins, the Raptors have covered the spread three times, each one of them as a favorite. Six of their last seven games have also gone OVER the total.
This season the Raptors and the Celtics have played twice with the home team winning one per side. The betting line was never more than a 3-point spread. Toronto, however, has been on the winning side in seven of the last ten meetings against Boston. Everything is lining up to add another win for the ones up North.
What’s the play? Raptors to win and cover.
