We see the two best defenses in the NBA square off here. They've both last played on the 23rd. Toronto does possess a more potent offense and is a bit healthier. The Raptors play their best basketball when facing good opponents as they are 5-1 ATS the last six games vs. teams with a winning percentage above .600. They also shine in the playoffs, going 6-2 ATS the last eight post-season games as a favorite. The Celtics are just 1-3-1 ATS the last five games vs. teams with a winning percentage over .600, 2-5 ATS the last seven playoff games as an underdog, and 0-4 ATS the last four Conference Semi Final games. Take Toronto. Thank you.
