What's The Line on the Raptors-Celtics Game 6?

The line on the possible elimination Game 6 between the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics opened at Boston -2.5 and has moved up to -3.5.  Early action had better than 85% backing Boston on the spread.

Better than 85% of the spread action was on the Celtics, so the books are reacting accordingly.

The Toronto series price with the Celtics up 3-2 pays $320 on a $100 bet.  Boston being up means a steeper price of -450.  In other words, if you think Boston wins this series (they can end it tonight), you would have to wager $45 to win $10 (that $45 is refunded just as long as they win) or $450 to win $100.

The Celtics lost in the conference finals in both 2017 and '18 before being eliminated in the semifinals by the Bucks last season. Despite being a win away from advancing, Boston isn't resting on its laurels.

"The job's not finished yet," swingman Jaylen Brown told reporters. "We've still got a lot of work that needs to be done."

The Raptors are 6-1-1 Against The Spread in their last 8 playoff games as an underdog while the Celtics are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win.
