The NBA season is back so let’s wager on these games! There are nine games on the slate today, Celtics at Raptors being the headliner.
Boston Celtics at Toronto Raptors -3
Vik (1-0): The public is overwhelmingly on the Celtics tonight (70%), and understandably so after their stomping of the 76ers on opening night. The C’s come into this game in a little bit of a let down spot, and historically, they don’t play well in Toronto (1-9 L10). Kawhi and Co. will be motivated for this matchup, and the fans will be hyped up for this nationally televised game. The Pick: Toronto -3
New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets-3.5
Jason (0-2): Ugly Friday slate. My initial look was the Jazz, who beat the Warriors badly twice last year in Utah, and I actually think the Cavs could show up on the road against the Timberwolves. But my official pick will be: Brooklyn -3.5. I sneakily kind of like the Nets this year to challenge for the 8th seed.
