Raptors Have Owned Series With Celtics

The Boston Celtics travel north of the border on Friday attempting to stop their longest losing skid of the 2015-16 NBA season. Losers of three in a row, the Celtics haven’t had much success versus the Dinos as of late. The Raptors are 8-3 SU in their last 11 versus the division counterparts.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 5-14 SU in its last 19 games in this matchup.
  • The Celtics are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games against the Eastern Conference.
  • The Celtics are 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 games against teams with winning records.

In the wake of a 115-109 loss at the ACC on January 20, the Celtics have also fallen in four of their last past five in Canada. Brad Stevens and company gave up 55.4 percent from the field in that contest – one of their worst defensive efforts of the season.

OVER bettors will be paying close attention to this one due to Boston’s penchant for going above totals away from Massachusetts. The OVER is 5-1 in the Celtics’ prior six on the road.

The Raptors, who currently sit one spot ahead of the Celtics for second in the Eastern Conference, will be a tired bunch in this matchup. The Raps will be playing their fourth game in five days – the only time this season they’ll be playing as much in that span.
