TOR (-100) @ sportsinteraction

This is a 5* play on the Toronto Raptors.

The Celtics won the first two games of this series, and they hit over 40 percent of their three-pointers in those games. The Raptors now have their confidence back after evening the series at 2-2, and the Celtics have cooled off from beyond the arc. They were just 7of-35 (20%) from three-point range in Game 4. Toronto has all the momentum, and they can take control of this series with a win in Game 5. Here is what I said before the season started: "There is no doubt that Kawhi Leonard deserved plenty of credit for bringing a title to Toronto, but I believe that there is a false narrative that he did it by himself. Many people question how competitive the Raptors can be without Kawhi. I would point out that last year they actually had a higher winning percentage in games he missed due to load management, than they did in the games he played. This is also a team that finished at or near the top of the Eastern Conference several seasons in a row prior to the arrival of Kawhi. Players like Fred Van Fleet and Pascal Siakam should be primed to thrive in a greater role. I caution against sleeping on the Raptors, and I'll take them at 12-1 to win the East."

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
