The Raptors are 7-5 SU (6-6 ATS) after a disappointing loss to the Boston Celtics Sunday night. The Celtics were without PG Kyrie Irving, and yet Toronto still couldn’t get the job done. Toronto’s SG DeMar DeRozan is 10th in the league in scoring, averaging 24.7 points per game.
The Rockets’ last game was also on Sunday; they took care of business in Indiana against the Pacers, extending their win streak to six games, and improving their already impressive season record to 11-3 SU (8-6 ATS). And they did it without PG Chris Paul. Who’s still out with a bruised knee.
The Rockets are 6-4 SU in their last 10 meetings with the Raptors, who have covered in half of those games. According to the Bovada Bonus Code site seven of the last 10 meetings have gone over the posted total, and both teams are ranked in the top 10 in the NBA in points per game.
