Raptors And Jazz Favored In Two Close NBA Playoff Matchups

  • The Toronto Raptors have -115 odds to beat the Boston Celtics.
  • The Utah Jazz are favored to beat the Denver Nuggets with -115 odds.

ORLANDO, Fla. – As the NBA playoffs continue, there are two big playoff matchups set to take place on Tuesday night.

Starting with Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, online sportsbooks have the Toronto Raptors favored to beat the Boston Celtics.

Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics:

  • Raptors (-115)
  • Celtics (-105)
  • Over/Under: 217.5 Points

The Raptors are favored to win in Game 2 despite taking an 18-point loss in Game 1.

If there was any game to take the underdog in, it would be this one as the Celtics seem to have the Raptors all figured out.

Make no mistake that since entering the bubble, the Raptors have been one of the hottest teams as they hold an 11-2 record. The problem here is that both of those losses have come at the hands of the Boston Celtics.

Even before bubble play, the Celtics went 2-1 against Toronto as well. That being said, the Celtics are out looking to continue their superb play over the Raptors in Game 2.

As for the game total, the over is favored despite not being hit in Game 1.

In the five games that they have met each other this season and postseason, the over has gone 3-2. One thing to take note of here is that Boston has been limiting the amount of points that Toronto has been scoring.

If Boston comes out the same way they did in Game 1, the under would look to be the better selection.

Utah Jazz Vs. Denver Nuggets

There is no bigger setting for a playoff series than Game 7 and what a series it has been thus far between the Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets.

Heading into Game 7, NBA odds have the Utah Jazz as the slight favorites to move on to the second round of the playoffs.

Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets:

  • Jazz (-115)
  • Nuggets (-105)
  • Over 218.5 (-110)
  • Under 218.5 (-110)

The matchup to watch within the series has been Donovan Mitchell against Jamal Murray. The two have been unbelievable on the offensive end and will look to continue that tonight.

This Game 7 matchup could be another one where the underdog, Denver Nuggets, could take the game. With all the momentum on their side, Denver was down 3-1 in the series before winning their last two to force a seventh and final game.

Looking at the game total, 218.5 points is just way too low and bettors should take advantage of this and slam the over by all means.

In five of their six previous playoff games, the over has been demolished and will look to continue that trend in Game 7. Let’s also not forget that the offensive performance from both teams has been nothing shy of spectacular as Donovan Mitchell and Jamal Murray have been leading the way.
