Best medicine to recover form Super Bowl madness and more particularly Super Bowl Betting madness is finding a new source of betting action. NBA might just do that. The Los Angeles Clippers will continue their five-game road trip when they visit the Toronto Raptors on Monday night.
The absence of superstar point guard Chris Paul has seriously impacted the Clippers. Starting guards Austin Rivers and J.J. Redick have been tasked with filling the void, and they simply haven’t been getting the job done in recent weeks. The duo combined to shoot 3-of-17 – including 0-of-7 from 3-point range – in Sunday’s 107-102 setback to the Boston Celtics on Sunday.
The Toronto Raptors started the season looking like a team that could challenge Cleveland in the Eastern Conference. However, the Raptors have dropped eight of their last 11 games and have fallen into a tie with Washington for third place in the East. On Sunday, Kyle Lowry recorded his first triple-double of the season to lead Toronto to a 103-95 road victory over Brooklyn. Lowry scored 15 points to go along with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.
The Toronto Raptors haven’t rattled off consecutive wins since mid-January but they’ll have an opportunity to do just that Monday evening. The Dinos are playing without leading scorer DeMar DeRozan, who’s missed seven of the team’s last eight games with an ankle issue.
Toronto forced 22 turnovers by Brooklyn and shot 46 percent on the afternoon. The Raptors totaled 55 first half points and went to halftime holding a 12-point lead.
Toronto battles the Los Angeles Clippers, currently with a 31-20 mark (25-26 ATS). The OVER/UNDER records, important for totals betting, are 30-21-1 for the Toronto Raptors and 28-23 for the Los Angeles Clippers.
