Online NBA Betting Odds:
The Raptors enter this Tuesday night contest sporting a 21-7 record that ranks them 1st in both the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference. Right now the 18-8 Milwaukee Bucks are the biggest threat Toronto is facing in the Eastern Conference race. Although they’ve built up a small lead, there’s no question that Toronto will be gunning for an even bigger cushion. There’s no mystery regarding the Raptors’ high level of success this season as it’s pretty clear the Kawhi Leonard acquisition has paid off. Heading into tonight’s match, the Raptors rank 5th in the league in scoring and 6th in points allowed. Considering that Los Angeles ranks 4th in scoring but 22nd in points allowed, Toronto shouldn’t have too hard of a time pulling out this road win tonight.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (26.1 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 3.0 apg), Serge Ibaka (16.4 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 1.4 apg), and Pascal Siakam (14.6 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 2.7 apg).
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers step into this evening’s inter-conference contest flashing a 17-9 record. That ranks them 2nd in the Pacific Division but 4th overall in the West. Considering that most online NBA betting fans considering the Western Conference to be the more dominant of the two, it’s clear Los Angeles is faring pretty well this season. However, with a 2-3 record in their last 5 games, the Clippers will need to turn things around quickly lest risk falling down the conference ladder. Unfortunately for LA, they’re facing the best the East has to offer this evening. And even though the Clippers are 5-5 in their last 10 versus the Clippers, Los Angeles has yet to face the Kawhi Leonard-led Raptors.
Players to Watch: Tobias Harris (21.4 ppg, 8.4 rpg, 2.3 apg), Danilo Gallinari (19.1 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 2.2 apg), and Lou Williams (17.2 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 4.5 apg).
