— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) April 4, 2018
The Celtics enter this evening’s action with a 53-24 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the Atlantic Division as well as the Eastern Conference. Boston is currently 2-games behind the conference-leading Raptors. But considering that the Celtics are 6-1 in their last 7, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Boston usurp Toronto in the coming week. Especially since Toronto is amidst a slump. Furthermore, the Celts delivered a decisive 110-99 beating to the Raptors the other night. With that in mind, it’s pretty clear that players should take the NBA betting odds out on Boston. After all, how often do you see the 5 team parlay odds peg Boston as the underdog this heavily?
Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (24.4 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 5.1 apg), Jaylen Brown (14.2 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.6 apg), and Jayson Tatum (13.9 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.6 apg).
The Raptors sprint into this Wednesday night pairing flashing a 55-22 record that ranks them 1st in the conference. However, considering that Toronto is 3-5 in their last 8, there’s no guarantee they’ll finish the season with the East’s No. 1 seed. In fact, considering the slump they’re in, tonight’s odds are highly questionable. Not to mention the fact that this is the 4th time this season they’ve faced Boston. And with the Celtics winning 2 of those previous three, it’s pretty clear that they should be the ones getting favored this evening.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (23.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 5.2 apg), Kyle Lowry (16.4 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 6.8 apg), and Jonas Valanciunas (12.8 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 1.1 apg).
