Raptors Still Underdogs in East Despite Best Record

The Toronto Raptors (53-18 SU, 40-31 ATS) have the best record in the Eastern Conference. Oddsmakers still have the Cleveland Cavaliers (41-29 SU, 23-46-1 ATS) are +125 favorites to win the East and return to a fourth-straight NBA Finals.

They’ll meet Wednesday night in Cleveland at 7 PM ET on ESPN. Oddsmakers have the Cavaliers as 2-point favorites. The total is at 226.

This is a rare opportunity for the Raptors to show their stuff to a national US audience, but the situation isn’t ideal. Although the Cavaliers are just 6-7 SU and 4-9 ATS since the All-Star break, they’ll have a day of rest before Wednesday’s game, while Toronto will visit the Orlando Magic on Tuesday.

The Cavs are a more talented team than they were before shuffling their roster at the NBA trade deadline. They’re still not getting the results they need from PG George Hill and SG Rodney Hood.

They’re also having some serious injury problems right now. The team has six players listed as out or day-to-day. This is including the best of their newcomers, PF Larry Nance Jr. He has missed the last two games with a tight right hamstring.

PF Kevin Love (broken hand) isn’t expected to return until the following game on Friday against the Phoenix Suns.
