Odds to Win 2018-19 NBA Divisions
With just under 30 games left in the 2018-19 NBA regular season the Toronto Raptors have a 3.5 game lead on both the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers. Yet with over a quarter of the campaign remaining the Raps are an un-backable 4-15 odds to win the Atlantic Division. Furthermore Toronto is currently playing under cloudy skies due to the back injury to point guard Kyle Lowry. The Raps floor general has missed a number of games to both quad and lower back ailments.
Toronto coach Nick Nurse told the media at the end of December he was concerned that Lowry could be inactive on more than one occasion for the rest of the regular season listing the reasons for his DNP status as rest. In truth the coaching staff is resting Lowry to avoid complicating his quad and back issues. The point guard has played in 42 of the team’s 54 games this year.
In addition the Raptors will be without Jonas Valanciunas for Tuesday’s game against the 76ers to a thumb injury. The often injured center has played in 30 games on the season.
Rumors have gone viral that Masai Ujiri is working hard to make a deadline deal with the New Orleans Pelicans for the services of All Star center Anthony Davis. NBA pundits are in agreement that the school of thought is the Raptors have offered Pascal Siakam, O.G. Anunoby and Jonas Valanciunas for Davis.
Backing the Raptors to win the Atlantic at 4-15 with all of the question marks that surround the current and trade deadline roster is not something I would go all in on.
