Raptors at Celtics picks and predictions


Celtics 120, Raptors 110


The Celtics (-350) have lost 2 of their last 3 games and shouldn’t overlook the Raptors, who caught Dallas flatfooted last time out. However, there’s no need to pay the higher price on the moneyline when Boston should also cover the spread.

PASS. Lay the points and/or bet the total instead.

Against the spread

The Raptors are just 1-6 ATS vs. Boston in the last 7 meetings and are rolling out their thinnest roster in years after losing G Fred VanVleet in the offseason. Toronto should let down after back-to-back impressive road wins and come out flat vs. the much more talented Celtics.

Boston’s in the same division as the Raptors and always seems to play above expectation when it faces them. Don’t expect the Celtics to underestimate Toronto after losing 2 of their last 3 games overall.

BET CELTICS -7.5 (-115).


The Raptors have started to slip defensively and have allowed 111 or more points in 4 straight games. The Celtics have scored 119 or more points in 5 of their last 7 and should help the Over hit as they keep their foot on the gas in order to avoid a 3rd loss in 4 games.

BET OVER 222.5 (-115).
