Raptors minus 3 hosting Celtics If the Raptors are serious about winning the Atlantic Division – and they indeed are trading for Serge Ibaka and PJ Tucker – they need to win this home game. Toronto trails Boston by four games in the division. It’s a crucial matchup for the Raptors. All-Star break came at […]

Devils minus $1.05 hosting Senators Those who have the misfortune of watching the Devils on a daily basis can’t be overly pleased with their team and somnolent offense. New Jersey defines mediocrity.

Magic plus 8 at Heat I’m going to test a handicapping theory. It’s the play-against the hot team that just had their long winning streak snapped. In this case it’s fade the Miami Heat. The Heat appeared to have their lottery reservations well in order when they lost 30 of their first 41 games. But […]
