Online sports gambling has seen the NBA reach the half way point of the sports betting regular season and the Raptors in the thick of the playoff chase. Toronto had an online sports gambling record of 25-22 straight up and a sports betting mark of 24-23 against the spread.
The online sports gambling mark was good for second place in the Atlantic Division and fifth overall in the Eastern Conference. Toronto has had the bulk of their online sports gambling success both as a favorite and at home.
The Raptors had an online sports gambling record of 13-9 against the spread as a host while going 9-5 against the spread as a favorite. The Raptors were also trending over the online sports gambling total with a mark of just 20 unders in 47 total games.
From January 15 through January 28 the Raptors were one of the top online sports gambling commodities on the board with a mark of 6-2 against the spread. Toronto’s offense is their online sports gambling strength as it ranked 5th overall in the NBA for scoring.
Chris Bosh leads the attack with 24 points per game scoring along with an astonishing 11.3 assists per game. Bosh has led one of the top online sports gambling resurgences of a team in any sport as Toronto was a poor 33-49 straight up last year and has not had a winning season since 2006-07.
Entering this season the Raptors had posted just one winning season in the previous eight. Bosh is looking forward to the NBA All Star Game which will take place in his native Dallas, Texas at Cowboys Stadium where over 85,000 tickets have already been sold which will make it the most highly attended hoop event ever.
“The fact that it’s in Dallas is kind of a bittersweet thing,” said Bosh. “Sweet because I get to play in front of my home crowd and it’s bitter because everybody wants tickets.”
