UNDER Trending in Raptors-Celtics Tilt

Kyle Lowry Isaiah Thomas

The Toronto Raptors have enjoyed great success versus division rival Boston this season and can complete a four-game sweep of the season series with a victory in Beantown on Wednesday. UNDER bettors, take note: the UNDER is 6-2 in the C’s last eight at home, while each of the Raptors’ last four have gone below the closing total.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss.
  • The Celtics are 0-3 SU and ATS in their last three games against teams with winning records.
  • The visiting team is 5-15 SU in its last 20 games in this matchup.

Toronto (48-21 SU), who trails Cleveland by 1.5 games for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, has won four in a row after topping Orlando 105-100 on Sunday. The Dinos easily triumphed in their last meeting with the Celtics, a 105-91 victory north of the border last Friday.

One player to watch out for is Boston point guard Isaiah Thomas. Thomas has averaged 26.5 points in 10 games this month, a huge output in the absence of forward Jae Crowder.

Crowder will miss his sixth straight matchup due to a nagging ankle injury, but head coach Brad Stevens stated he could return sometime during Boston’s five-game road trip that begins Saturday against Phoenix.
