Raptors Game Today: Raptors vs Celtics Odds, Prediction, Pick, TV for Oct. 9

The Toronto Raptors’ chances of going undefeated in the preseason were slim to start with, and that grandiose dream was officially ruined by the rival 76ers, as a road trip to Philadelphia uncovered some of the flaws and issues with this roster. The latest Raptors odds aren’t expecting a bounce-back game tonight.

Toronto doesn’t have much time to lick their wounds, as a game against new coach Ime Udoka and the rival Boston Celtics is next up on the schedule. Even without Jaylen Brown, they are a formidable opponent.

With Udoka’s defensive background, Toronto could be in for a very difficult evening when it comes to getting consistent open looks. The team needs a better offensive performance than what happened in Philadelphia.

Will the Raptors get one of those solid offensive performances they have been looking for? Or will Boston snatch another win and send the Raptors to a sluggish 1-2 start this preseason?

Celtics vs Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick

The latest odds from WynnBET have the Celtics as -3.5 favorites against the spread, with Boston -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. The Celtics are -170 on the moneyline, while Toronto checks in at +145 (bet $100 to win $145).

The over-under in this contest is 217.5 points, with both the over and under checking in at -110. Las Vegas is expecting two defensively strong teams to start strong and make it tough to generate offense consistently.

Toronto Raptors vs Boston Celtics Prediction

While it remains to be seen which Celtics players are going to suit up, Boston has very quietly built another deep roster that can come at Toronto in multiple ways on the offensive end of things. Will the likes of Scottie Barnes and Precious Achiuwa be able to punch back?

Considering that the 76ers were left confused at how to attack Toronto’s length during their first meeting, that ability to switch everything on defense and get out in transition might be enough to help Toronto pull out a win.
