Boston vs. TORONTO (-3)
By Mitchell Newman, Featured Handicapper
Fired with my biggest release of the MLB season on Thursday and delivered the winner as my 1st 50 Dime play this year cashed in as Colorado on the Run Line got the job done by a 6-4 score over San Francisco.
I don't have another 50 dimer going tonight, but I do have another winner that will continue my winning ways.
Need to build off of yesterday's 50 Dime winner and I will do just that here on Friday.

Last night's winner was nice, but it is only good if I can follow it up with a winner here tonight.
Consider it done!
For Friday on the hardwood, going to lay the small chalk with the Toronto Raptors as they look to clinch the # 2 seed for the upcoming playoffs with a win over the puzzling Boston Celtics.
Toronto is the NBA's owner of the longest active win streak, as they have won and covered all 3 games in the reboot in the bubble in Orlando to run their straight up winning streak to 7 in a row with a 5-1-1 spread mark.
Boston enters this game as the # 3 seed in the East, but they have gone just 2-2 straight up in their 4 return games and are 1-2-1 in those 4 games.
The Celtics have shown very little cohesion since resuming play and Kemba Walker is still trying to heal up his injured knee as he missed the last game Boston played, but is expected to go tonight.
Boston has taken 2 of the 3 season series meetings straight up this year over the defending NBA Champs, but it is clear to me that Raptors coach Nick Nurse is among the best minds in the game currently and I expect Toronto to nail down the # 2 seed with the win and cover tonight.
Lay it with the Raptors.
