NBA Live Betting: Raptors vs. CavaliersPublished January 4, 2016 by Sol FH
Raptors vs Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena tonight at 00:05 GMT, with incredible odds for punters.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are still grasping onto first place in the NBA Eastern Conference, now on a three-game win streak. They have won 22 and lost 9 this season, but started 2016 off with a bang, not having lost a game yet in the New Year. Tonight, they face the fourth best team in the East, as the Toronto Raptors come to town with a 21-14 record, but lost a very tough game against the Bulls on Sunday Night 115-113.
The Cavs are on a tear, having won their last 9-11 games and are even better at home with a 14-1 record. Defense has been the name of the game for Cleveland having only allowed an average of 88 points against them over their last 10 games.
The Raptors are no slouches however, with the talented backcourt duo of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan leading Toronto in scoring and assists. DeRozan is averaging 22.9 points per game and Lowry is pulling the assist in with 6.3 and 20.6 scoring. This duo will be tough for the Cavs to manage tonight, but LeBron and the rest of the Cleveland squad is ready for the challenge.
The Raptors were able to beat the Cavs in Toronto back on November 25th, but playing in Cleveland at LeBron's house is an entirely different story. Toronto will need to contain James and bring down as many rebounds as possible if they are to beat the Cavs.
