Boston Celtics vs Toronto Raptors Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NBA Game on Thursday August 27th, 2020.

 

Reason for Boston Celtics +2.0

The "green" box arrives toned in this Game 1 of the Eastern semifinals, after crushing Philadelphia in the previous round (4-0).

Brad Stevens' boys captured direct and effective basketball in attack, also standing out for being relatively safe on defense.

Jayson Tatum is playing great, being able to score between 20-30 points on average per game. Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker also contribute theirs due to their great quality, reaching more shots due to the absence due to injury of cashier Gordon Hayward.

Most likely, the Celtics will get between 25-28 units per period and between 100-110 total, as they may have a low quarter due to the fierce defense that the Canadians will surely impose.

 

Jayson Tatum Boston Celtics

23.4 PTS, 7 REB, 3 AST

Tatum totaled 28 points (10-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-10 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal in 40 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 victory over the 76ers. There is certainly no doubt about who's the alpha on this team right now with Tatum putting in another stellar performance. He's simply taken his game to another level this season, which has the Celtics firing on all cylinders.

 

 

Reason for Toronto Raptors -2.0

The Canadian team reaches these semifinals of the Eastern Conference, after clearly and forcefully sweeping the Brooklyn Nets. It was a lethal 4-0 that allowed him to show his best collective and offensive level. Nick Nurse's guys didn't need to try too hard to dispatch 8th overall.

At the moment Fred VanVleet is being the main figure of the franchise thanks to the excellent shot he is taking, which is usually lethal when it is given from the line of 3.

Kyle Lowry brought experience and a gift of command, being able to not play this duel due to a blow he suffered a few days ago. Pascal Siakam has had an acceptable performance, but he has not been as explosive as in the playoffs last season.

The logic indicates that the Raptors specify between 26 to 29 points per quarter and between 105 to 115 throughout the 48 minutes of play, since they have a choral proposal that has been consolidated after winning the NBA ring.

 

Pascal Siakam Toronto Raptors

22.9 PTS, 7.3 REB, 3.5 AST

Siakam compiled 20 points (9-22 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes in Sunday's 150-122 win over the Nets. Siakam put up an excellent fantasy point total, despite a lukewarm shooting night. His 10 assists marked a season-high for the talented forward, who continues to distinguish himself as one of the most versatile wing players in the league.
