The Toronto Raptors have opened at -2 for Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinals matchup against the Boston Celtics, per BettingPros consensus odds.

Betting Impact:

As expected, the Toronto Raptors have opened as favorites against the Boston Celtics. The -2 line reflects how close these two teams are in talent and form, but may also reflect Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry's uncertain availability for this contest. The Boston Celtics will be without Gordon Hayward, likely for the entirety of this series. Adding to the potential drama here, the Toronto Raptors have discussed boycotting Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting at the hands of Kenosha, Wisconsin police.
