The Toronto Raptors will host the Boston Celtics on April 4th in a matchup that could determine the top seed in the East. A Celtics win will put them one game behind the Raptors and if the Raptors win they will likely be top seed heading into the post season.
The Raptors (-340) are coming off a two game losing streak, first to the Celtics then the Cavaliers. This will be the last time in the regular season these two teams will play with the Celtics leading the odds makers series 2-1. The home team has won in all three matchups so far. Playing at home favors the Raptors who have won 31 or 38 games at home in the regular free sports pick season. Toronto players are healthy as they enter this back to back matchup. The Raptors regulars are slated to start. The Vegas odds makers favorite Toronto Raptors are listed at -7(-105) and the road dog Boston Celtics at +7(-115). The game total is listed at 206(-105)o and 206(-115)u for the over/under bettor.
The Celtics (+270) are 7-3 in their last 10 games and have won 74% of their road games this betting odds season. The Celtics will play this very important game short stacked with Marcus Smart with an injured thumb, Kyrie Irving and Daniel Theis with knee injuries and Gordon Hayward with an ankle injury. Boston starters for this best odds matchup are likely to be Kadeem Allen, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and Aaron Baynes if Shane Larkin and Terry Rozier are held out of play. Rozier is a critical player for the Celtics with the points he is almost guarenteed every game to produce. Jayson Tatum will enter the game with a heavy load on his shoulders with Smart and Irving out. Can the Celtics overcome their injuries to the starting line up?
