Now that the NBA All-Star break is over, it’s time to buckle down on your hoops betting. The Toronto Raptors host the San Antonio Spurs on Friday after the Dinos went into the break on a six-game winning streak. This run down the stretch ahead of the playoffs will be all about getting newcomers Marc Gasol and Jeremy Lin up to speed and staying healthy as they chase first place in the Eastern Conference. The Raps are one game back of the Milwaukee Bucks for top spot. Still, oddsmakers have the Raptors as +187 favourites to win the East, ahead of the Bucks (+250), Philadelphia 76ers (+325) and the Boston Celtics (+350). Toronto supporters should choose their point spread bets carefully though. The Raps are only 26-33 against the spread this season.
Over in the Western Conference, the Golden State Warriors are still the class of the NBA and are massive -278 favourites to win another championship. Toronto checks in as the second favourite at +800.
The NHL trade deadline is coming up on Monday, Feb. 25, so a lot could change on the league’s futures board after all of the wheeling and dealing is done. The Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets should all be busy looking to add pieces ahead of the playoff push, while the Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers are rebuilding again. Meanwhile, the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning may not need to do much other than stay healthy. Their 96 points is 15 points more than the next best total in the league from the Calgary Flames.
