Toronto Raptors Vs. Golden State Warriors Game 3 Betting Preview
The Toronto Raptors must be scratching their heads wondering how they lost Game 2, after all the injuries the Golden State Warriors sustained on Sunday Night. The Raptors will have a shot of getting home-court back on Wednesday Night. The Warriors are trying to get their big names healthy enough to compete.
2019 NBA Finals Game 3 Betting Odds
|Warriors||+195||-5.5 (-110)||Over 212.5 points (-115)|
|Raptors||-245||+5.5 (-110)||Under 212.5 points (-105)|
Let’s do a quick summary on how everything went wrong for Toronto on Sunday Night. They had a double-digit lead in the second quarter and were rolling. Somehow the Warriors cut that lead to five points before halftime. Golden State started the third quarter with an 18-0 run and never look back, even after Klay Thompson left the fourth quarter with an injury. Golden State had no offense with Steph Curry as the only pure shooter in the game in the last minutes of Game 2.
Toronto outscored Golden State 10-3 in the final 5:39 minutes and even so, was unable to win the contest. When the Raptors see the tape, they will realize, they let the Warriors steal a game they had no business winning it. The status of Klay Thompson was listed as questionable with a hamstring strain for Game 3. Kevon Looney is out for the rest of the finals with a fracture of the first costal cartilage on the right side of his rib cage. And there is no news about Kevin Durant and his possible return to action.
The Worst-Case Scenario For Golden State
If none of the three names above play the game on Wednesday that would mean all the bad luck in the world is hitting their chances. I think Klay will be available, although I had no idea how he’s going to perform. Nevertheless, his mere presence on the court will help Steph Curry get open. Without Thompson, then Curry becomes an easy target for the defense. Toronto knows they screw up Game 2, but their best opportunity to get home court back is by winning the next meeting. Golden State is clearly wounded in terms of quality and depth.
The Raptors just need to attack, be aggressive from the start and put the series on their side again. The 5.5-points in the spread is the biggest gap between these two teams in this series so far. And all of this is with Durant and Thompson questionable to be ready for Game 3. It makes me wonder how much of a favorite will be the Warriors with KD in the lineup. Either way, Golden State is too injured to consider them to cover the spread. I have serious doubts about where their offense is going to come if Curry is the only healthy player in the starting five. Let’s take the Raptors, who have looked like the best team for the most part of the series. It should be a really close one.
