The Boston Celtics look to keep on playing solid basketball as they head up to Toronto to take on the Raptors. For up to the minute odds on all sports please visit BetOnline sportsbook.
Head to head, the Celtics are 15-5-1 ATS in the last 21 contests and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings at the Air Canada Center, while the favorite is 8-2-1 ATS in the last 11 games and the home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The Raptors are 13-5-1 ATS in their last 19 games vs. a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a loss of 10 or more, but just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Celtics on the flip side are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 8-1-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
The Raptors may look like solid underdog picks here, but beware before making that pick. The Raptors who are not a very good team to begin with are already playing without Jerryd Bayless and Andrea Bargnani, Amir Johnson, Linas Kleiza, and Jose Calderon are all questionable for tonight’s game. Toronto lost their last home game to Philly by 18 points and we are expecting more of the same tonight. Meanwhile, things couldn’t be better for a Boston squad that has won four straight and 11 out of their last 14 games overall. With Miami and Chicago suffering some recent losses, the Celtics loom as the hottest team in the East as we head towards the home stretch of the regular season.
The underdog is typically our pick here, but you just cannot ignore the amount of players that the Raptors could potentially be without. We like the road favorite Celtics in this one and think you should lay the points but before placing a wager read sportsbook reviews.
