NBA Basketball Betting Odds:
The Wizards enter this Friday night pairing sporting a meager 6-11 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Southeast Division and 10th overall in the Eastern Conference. Right now the Celtics are sitting at the crucial 8th seed in the conference. Since Washington is only 2 ½ games behind Boston, it’s clear that this season is far from over for Washington. However, they certainly cannot afford any more lengthy losing streaks like the one they endured earlier this year. As for tonight’s matchup, the NBA basketball betting odds aren’t giving Washington much of a shot against one of the best teams in the conference. Granted, Washington is 3-7 in their last 10 against the Raptors, so they really haven’t had much of a shot against Toronto for a while now. And that was before Toronto secure Kawhi, so what chance does Washington have now?
Players to Watch: Bradley Beal (21.8 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.7 apg), John Wall (21.5 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 7.9 apg), and Dwight Howard (12.8 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 0.4 apg).
The Raptors leap into this evening’s contest flashing a brilliant 15-4 record that pegs them as the best team in both the Eastern Conference and Atlantic Division. However, with a 1-game lead over the second seeded Milwaukee Bucks, it’s pretty clear that Toronto needs to keep winning if they are to maintain their stake atop the conference. Fortunately Toronto enter this evening’s action riding a 3-game winning streak, ready to pounce on a weaker opponent. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear Washington will get outworked this evening.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (24.2 ppg, 8.2 rpg, 3.2 apg), Serge Ibaka (17.4 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 1.2 apg), and Kyle Lowry (15.4 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 10.5 apg).
