Toronto Raptors Betting

The defending NBA champions Raptors are off to a great start. Fully embracing the role as “the guy,” Pascal Siakam recorded 34 points and 18 rebounds in the season-opener against the Pelicans. Fred VanVleet also picked up where he left off in the NBA finals, going 12-for-18 from the field (5-for-7 from beyond the 3-point line) to finish with 34 as well. Kawhi Leonard might already be gone, but the win showed the Raptors are just fine without him, at least for now.

Players to Watch: Pascal Siakam (34.0 PPG, 18.0 RPG, and 5.0 APG) Fred VanVleet (34.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 7.0 APG), and Kyle Lowry (22.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 6.0 APG)

Boston Celtics Betting

The Celtics got some serious wake-up call from the Sixers in the season-opener. After losing Kyrie Irving and Al Horford, Boston thought they could still compete at an elite level with Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter coming in as replacements. However, Wednesday’s ballgame proved the Sixers are just on another level. The Celtics need to figure out a lot of things, especially on the defensive end, to really make their presence felt in the East. Despite the loss, Gordon Hayward looked like his old self pre-injury. The former All-Star scored 25 points on 8-for-15 shooting, while Jayson Tatum added 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Players to Watch Gordon Hayward (25.0 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 2.0 APG), Jayson Tatum (21.0 PPG, 10.0 RPG, and 2.0 APG), and Jaylen Brown (8.0 PPG and 7.0 RPG).

Toronto Raptors vs Boston Celtics Betting Picks

The Toronto Raptors split their last 10 head-to-head games with the Boston Celtics, averaging 106.6 points per contest while limiting the opponent to just 101.6 points. Both teams no longer have a superstar-type player, but they are still formidable East playoff contenders with 8 to 9-men deep rotations.

Moneyline: Most online sportsbooks favor Boston to beat Toronto at home. ESPN basketball power index gives the Celtics a 60.7 percent chance of winning; however, based on their performance vs. the Sixers, the versatile Raptors are going to be tough customers, particularly on defense.

ATS: As far as the points against the spread betting, the Raptors boast a 6-4 ATS record, which indicates the team’s competency whenever they play the Celtics at home or on the road.

TOTALs: The Raptors scored 130 points in their season debut, but needed an extra five minutes to reach that number. The Celtics failed to breach the 100-point barrier because the Sixers’ interior defense was just too tight for them. I would say the Celtics will score more than 100 points vs. the Raptors, but this game will still fall short from exceeding the over totals.

Score Prediction: 110-108 Raptors
