The 2021-22 NBA season will attempt to be as close to a normal NBA season as possible after two years playing through a pandemic. The COVID situation in the United States has not improved as much as expected, but the league expects to get a full 82 games in while pushing for its players, coaches and staff to get vaccinated.
DKNation will be going through all 30 teams ahead of the season, looking at betting odds for each squad courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook. Here, we’ll be looking at Toronto Raptors odds heading into the new season.
Toronto Raptors Odds for 2021-22 Season
Win total over/under: 35.5
The Raptors still have a solid veteran group with Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam. The latter is going to miss some time early in the season, but this group will be much tougher than many expect. This is a slightly lower win total line, but the East is going to be much better in the middle of the pack this season.
Odds to make playoffs: No -360, Yes +280
It’s odd to see these numbers when coupled with the win total line. The Raptors are still more likely to miss the playoffs despite their experienced core, although they’ll surely be in contention for the play-in tournament. If Siakam comes back quicker than anticipated, the Raptors could rack up some wins early as teams are still trying to integrate new players. Continuity is going to help this team.
