NBA action tonight, one of the most anticipated games for today, is not the last of the night but is one of the princiaples at the start of the night. Toronto Raptors travels to Cleveland to play against the Cavaliers. The home team has won the first of four home games, Pelicans and Mavericks were the first victims at the Quicken Loans Arena.
Cleveland Cavaliers: Shaping their playoffs race
The Cavaliers are already planning everything they will do in the playoffs, obviously they are a team that will be in the playoffs and will be a contender title for the Eastern Conference. The Cavs are very clear that the Raptors will be a very difficult team in the playoffs, like the Boston Celtics, but they must make sure they study the Canadians well since this season against the Toronto Raptors they are 1-1 from January to March 21, the last match was tight and they could barely win by 3 points.
At home the Cavs have been solid, 27 wins and 11 losses, 71% win at home. Currently the team has a winning streak of 6 games against Pistons, Bucks, Raptors, Suns, Pelicans and Mavericks. All the wins were during March, it was the third month with the best streak this season for the Cavs, including November and December 2017.
111.6 is the average points at home for the Cavaliers, 48% Field goal, 76.8% first throw, 36.3% three pointers. The Cavs usually score more than 26+ points per quarter, while allowing 25.5 per quarter to the visiting teams. At home the Cleveland Cavaliers have always been lethal.
Toronto Raptors: No. 1 Eastern Conference.
Everyone in Canada knows that Toronto Raptors is one of the teams that can win the Eastern Conference, but playing against the Cleveland Cavaliers has always been a problem, especially if they know how strong the Cavs are at home. The season of the Raptors has been much better than last year, on the road the team has reaped 24 wins and 14 losses with a 63.2% chance of winning at home.
Recently the Raptors had a winning streak on the road of 9 games, although they were not “dangerous” teams, that streak served to increase the hunger for triumph of the team players.
The Raptors’ weakness was noticeable when they lost to the Cavaliers and Celtics, and now they are again waiting to play against the Cavs on the road. The team is scoring 111 points for game on the road, it’s a high number of points, 47.4% field goal with 40.4 points on average, 79.8% first throw, 35.5% three pointers and 9.50 offensive rebounds.
For this game I have a prediction based on the current loss of the winning streak of the Raptors, especially because the winning streak was finished by the Cavs, and now they have to play again against the Cavs. It is not easy to predict a result between these two powerful teams, but Cleveland Cavaliers is projected to win all the remaining games at home and increase the winning streak at home they currently have. Cleveland ATS is 11-24-3 at home, they are not promising numbers, but scoring 111 points at home and allowing only 105 to the visitors, Cavs are definitely the team with the best performance.
