Toronto Raptors DFS Spin

Kyle Lowry hit 13-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers for 31 points, six rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Thursday's thrilling 104-103 win over the Celtics in Game 3. Lowry was outstanding for most the game and overcame a tough knee to the groin in the fourth quarter to make the play of the game with 0.5 seconds left on the clock and the Raptors down two points. Lowry inbounded the ball against 7' 5" Tacko Fall and somehow found OG Anunoby open across the court and Anunoby made a tough 3-pointer just as the buzzer sounded. The Celtics are up 2-1 and suffered their first loss of the playoffs tonight, thanks to the heroics of Lowry and Anunoby.

Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Kemba Walker hit 9-of-15 shots, four 3-pointers and 7-of-7 free throws for 29 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals and just two turnovers in Thursday's shocking 104-103 loss to the Raptors. Walker found Daniel Theis with a brilliant no-look pass for a dunk that put the Celtics up 103-101 with just 0.5 seconds left on the clock. But Kyle Lowry was able to get an inbounds pass over Tacko Fall and find OG Anunoby for a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Raptors their first win and to narrow the Celtics series lead to 2-1. Jaylen Brown hit 9-of-15 shots for 19 points and Jayson Tatum struggled tonight, hitting just 5-of-18 shots for 15 points, nine rebounds, six assists and a steal. Game 4 is set for Saturday at 6:30 and it should be another doozy.

Raptors vs. Celtics Game 4 Betting Prediction

The Celtics fell in Game 3 but they also covered as a slight underdog and I’m going back to the well again tonight. Boston is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven games overall, is 7-1 against the number in its last eight games versus an opponent with a winning record and has covered in four straight meetings with Toronto. Meanwhile, the Raptors are now 0-5 at the betting window in their last five conference semifinals games and have not covered in four of their last five games when facing an opponent with a winning record. I see the Celtics winning another close one and taking a 3-1 series lead.
