Eastern Conference - First Round - Best Of 7 - Game 1 - Lake Buena Vista, F
The Raptors defense is very deep and they have a size and physical edge in this series and have an ability to make shooters look bad. This is evident by their 2nd ranked D vs opponents’ 50.3% eFG%. Also the Nets like to shoot 3s and the Raps will give them that opportunity , but it must be noted , the Raptors are the best team at limiting opponents’ accuracy from downtown and the Nets Im betting will have issues converting.
TORONTO is 23-14 UNDER versus explosive offensive teams - scoring 110+ points/game this season with the average combined score of those games clicking in at 217.8 ppg.
.NBA teams where the total is greater than or equal to 220 (BROOKLYN) - in a playoff game, in the 1rst game of a playoff series are 24-4 L/5 seasons for a 86% conversion rate for bettors.
