Toronto Raptors vs Memphis Grizzlies 2/8/2021 Betting Odds
Toronto Raptors Betting
It seemed long ago that the Toronto Raptors are the best team in the NBA back in 2019. That is far from what they are right now and the team resides in Tampa Bay during the pandemic. Fred VanVleet has signed up to a long term contract with the Raptors and he has been giving it all. He has established himself as the team’s best scorer by dropping 50 points over the Orlando Magic. This team just lost to the Atlanta Hawks but they are on a steady climb so far. Chris Boucher is also making a case for sixth man for the year and he had 29 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks.
Players to watch: F. VanVleet SG 23 GP 23 GS 36.2 MIN 20.2 PTS 0.8 OR 3.6 DR 4.4 REB 6.3 AST 1.8 STL 0.7 BLK 1.8 TO 2.1 PF 3.5 AST/TO 18.55 PER

Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies are now on a three-game losing streak and they need to come up with a victory soon before slumping even further. Injuries have been hampering the Grizzlies all-season long. After Ja Morant got well, the team lost Jonas Valanciunas. Xavier Tillman has been starting on his behalf but had a hard time adjusting to the role. Keldon Anderson was the team’s best scorer in their most previous game against the Atlanta Hawks. Morant had 16 but they needed more from Dillon Brooks. Valanciunas returned to the team and had 29 but the chemistry is still off.
Players to Watch: J. Morant PG 10 GP 10 GS 28.4 MIN 18.6 PTS 0.4 OR 1.8 DR 2.2 REB 7.2 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 3 TO 1.6 PF 2.4 AST/TO 20.02 PER
