The Celtics started their season with a road trip to their longtime rivals, the Philadelphia 76ers, on Wednesday. They lost 107-93, but Gordon Hayward contributed 25 points for Boston and Jayson Tatum weighed in with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

The Sixers are widely regarded as one of the best teams in the NBA this season, so there’s no need to overreact to this particular Celtics’ loss.

Defending NBA champs the Toronto Raptors started the new season with a win with a hard-fought 130-122 victory coming in overtime over the New Orleans Pelicans at the Scotiabank Arena on Tuesday evening. Fred VanVleet scored a career-high 34 points and Pascal Siakam ended with 34 points plus 18 rebounds. There were also 22 points from guard Kyle Lowry.

Boston Celtics vs Toronto Raptors Betting Lines & Pick

Home-court advantage will ensure that the Money Line favours Boston. The Canadian betting firm, Sports Interaction were the first bookmaker to price this one up and agreed offering NBA Moneyline odds of -147.06 (1.68) for the Boston Celtics to win with the Raptors win available to back at +122 (2.22).

There’s no great belief that the Toronto Raptors can repeat last season’s successes following the free agency departure of NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard to the Los Angeles Clippers and guard Danny Green for the Los Angeles Lakers, but they should again be highly competitive in the Eastern Conference.

In terms of NBA betting picks for this game, that home-court advantage could well be the difference between these two evenly matched teams. Therefore, the Boston Celtics will be our main NBA betting pick to win this game.
