Tonight’s game between the Toronto Raptors and the Houston Rockets will be a close on. Rockets were favorites against the Oklahoma City Thunders without Shai. But in the end another L was put on their record for the season.
Their record currently stands at 0.268 2nd worst only to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Rockets have had their three starting players in Wood, Wall and Oladipo back from injury and they now stand with the chance to take their first win in weeks. The mental state of the team have taken a toll with Wood showing his dissatisfaction late last night saying that the team simple doesn’t play together.
They stand against a Raptors on an 8 game losing streak. The Raptors strong defense in the last two seasons where they managed to rank in the top five in defensive efficiency ultimately resulting in a NBA Championship. Their defensive struggle proved real late last night vs the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers that shot over 50% from the 3-point line.
If you´re the person that need to hit the bed early, this bet will be just for you. Betting on 1. Quarter and 1. Half spreads is a modern solution to your problems. As the statistics don’t lie. Luckily you have the internet at your disposal and tonight is another example of this. I believe that a healthy Raptors team will prove to strong and that we should see a Rockets team going 0-17 after tonight. The spread currently stand at -4.0 which is a fine spread for tonight.
Pick of the day: Raptors -4.0 1. Half
