The Raptors come into this Tuesday night matchup sporting a 7-5 record that ranks them 2nd in the Atlantic Division and 4th overall in the Eastern Conference. Toronto hasn’t been that bad this season but despite the modest success the club has enjoyed so far, it’s extremely unlikely that they’ll be able to catch up to the 12-2 Boston Celtics at the top of the division. The Raptors had an opportunity to close that bridge with Boston this past Sunday when they traveled to the Garden to take on the Celts. Despite having a last-second opportunity to win the game, the Raptors were unable to make the final shot and fell to the Celtics 95-94. It was a thrilling finish that proves that this Toronto team is capable of competing, and even beating, the best teams in the league. But it seems that the NBA betting online odds aren’t thinking too highly of the Raptor’s most recent performance since they’re pegging Toronto as the underdog ahead of this evening’s matchup. This evening’s contest will mark the second-straight time the Raptors have squared off against a conference leader. The 6-point spread line might not be predicting a close contest, but judging by how well Toronto performed against Boston it wouldn’t be all that shocking to see them give Houston a run for the Rockets’ money.
Players who bet online sportsbooks should keep an eye out for DeMar DeRozan this evening. In addition to having 4 capital letters in his name, DeRozan is putting up 24.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 4.2 assists with a 45.3% field goal percentage.
The Rockets blast off into this inter-conference matchup flashing a stellar 11-3 record that ranks them 1st in both the Southwest Division as well as the Western Conference. The Rockets have only conceded 3 losses this season, 2 of which were against the Memphis Grizzlies and the third coming against the Philadelphia 76ers. Those two aren’t what you’d call the best teams in the nation, but even the best slip-up every now and then. Furthermore, with wins over the Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers, the Rockets have proven on multiple occasions that they can defeat the best the NBA has to offer.
The Rockets will turn to James Harden to get the job done this evening. The Beard has remained the leader of this team, despite the addition of Chris Paul, since he’s averaging 30.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 10.2 assists per outing.
