The Celtics have been on a mission since the start of the NBA playoffs and took Games 1 and 2 against the reigning champion Toronto Raptors.
Oddsmakers at FanDuel moved the C’s from -118 favorites (54.1% implied probability) to -500 favorites (83.3% implied probability) in the series after the win on Tuesday. Based on the odds, Celtics in five (listed at +250 odds) is the most likely outcome of this series.
The good news for the Raptors is they play extremely well under head coach Nick Nurse in Games 3-7 of a series. Over the past two postseasons, the Raptors are 15-3 straight up and 13-5 against the spread in those games, according to our Bet Labs database. They famously fell down 0-2 last season to the Milwaukee Bucks during the Eastern Conference finals before ripping off four straight wins to win the series.
