Houston Rockets Betting
The Rockets made some changes in mid-season as they surrounded their MVP tandem with a full-blast small ball roster. This team is being led by James Harden and he joins Giannis Antentokuonmpo and LeBron James as the top-rated players in NBA 2k20 at 97. Russell Westbrook fell down on his NBA 2k ratings this year as he backs up Hardeon with an 89 overall. The only player joining Westbrook and Harden with at least an 80 overall ranking and above is Ryan Covington. Eric Gordon is the team’s shooting guard as he owns a deadly touch from the three-point arc within his 79 overall. P.J. Tucker is now the team’s starting center and he is the shortest in the league in that position at 6’6” and his given rating is 76.
Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors are the defending champions this season and even without Kawhi Leonard, Coach Nick Nurse managed to instill a winning culture with the team. Pascal Siakam has filled in the shoes of Leonard as the first-time NBA All-Star is given an 89 overall rating. Kyle Lowry is the Raptors’ combo guard and his leadership stabilizes the team on both ends. He is at 85 overall and Fred VanVleet joins him in the starting lineup as an additional playmaker with a rating of 82. Serge Ibaka stood as the team’s starting center when Marc Gasol went down on an injury and he is 81 overall.
