Closely contested series. Raptors are still the favorite to win tonight at (-137) odds. The first game of this series showed me how well the Celtics play as unit when everyone is chipping in. The second game showed me that when the the Celtics rely on their stars they come through. The Raptors gave me confidence in that game 2 defeat. Raptors played better defense but the shots weren’t falling when they needed them.
Tonight we will see a better (bettor) Raptors team. The Raptors are due for a big performance from their key players. A lot of interesting betting spots are available. Even Marcus Smart over 12.5 points (-121); which worked for us last time out and is still a righteous line. The thing that worries me about rolling with that pick is, throughout the bulk of that game; he didn’t get many chances to shoot. It didn’t cash until late in the 4th quarter. I think It will be a sweat once more so I want no part of it tonight.
Tonight I have the feeling the Raptors will be looking to avenge the 2-0 deficit in this series and get right. One player in particular who has a wonderful opportunity to score a boat load of buckets is OG Anunoby. He flourished last game in his starting role and is looking confident in his stroke. He shot 7-12 FG’s and 4-6 from 3pt land last game.. I like the match-up he has since Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens rotates so many players. The Raptors will be looking for OG Anunoby and anybody to knock down shots against a Celtics squad with a chip on their shoulder.
My wager: OG Anunoby OVER 10.5 points (-121).
