Boston Celtics vs Toronto Raptors: Prediction and Betting Tips
Possible line-ups for the match:
G – Dennis Schroder; G – Marcus Smart; F – Jayson Tatum; F – Al Horford; C – Robert Williams.
G – Fred VanVleet; G – Gary Trent Jr.; F – OG Anunoby; F – Scottie Barnes; C – Pascal Siakam.
The Celtics continue to struggle on the court. The Celtics are too poor in attack and depend on the play of Jaylen Brown. But it seems he has not fully recovered from Covid, so he is not playing as well as he can.

Sometimes Udoka’s men are winning. They’re really only doing so through their well-coordinated defensive performance. They won the games against the Orlando Magic (92-79) and Miami Heat (95-78), for example, but the Celtics couldn’t defeat the Dallas Mavericks (104-107) in their most recent meeting.
The Toronto Raptors have had a good start to the new regular season. But, as we know, after a winning streak comes defeat. In the case of the Raptors, it was bound to happen. First Nick Nurse’s team had some troubles against the Cleveland Cavaliers and lost by just one point (102-103). After that, the Canadians had nothing against the Brooklyn Nets (103-116).

Pascal Siakam’s recent return to the lineup is worth noting. Sure, the Cameroonian is far from his best form, but for now, the African is looking good. For example, in his last game, he scored 15 points in 25 minutes.
Boston Celtics vs Toronto Raptors statistics:
- Jayson Tatum has so far scored 23.6 points on average this season. Without Jalen Brown, he’s the best in the attack.
- The Raptors have 10.9 steals per game on average this season. In eight out of ten games, Boston’s opponents have committed less than 8 steals.
- The Raptors have not won the first quarter in 3 of their last 4 games.
Boston Celtics vs Toronto Raptors Tips:
Jalen Brown will not help the Celtics in this game. He’s injured again. Without him, the Celtics’ chances of winning the game are considerably lower. Despite that, the bookmakers see Udoka’s side as slight favorites.
We disagree with the odds. In our opinion, Toronto’s chances of winning are better than Boston’s. In this case, it makes sense to favor the underdog.
Our first prediction and bet is the Raptors’ win with the odds of 2.09 with the VBet bookmaker.
The Celtics will once again have problems with their attack. Still, Brown’s absence should affect the Celtics’ play.
Our second prediction is total match points under 212.5 with the odds of 1.67 with the VBet bookmaker.
