Sports betting on the Toronto Raptors had not been very profitable lately and their superstar player is fed up with the team’s play.
The Raptors were blown out on Saturday against Golden State in online sports betting and forward Chris Bosh ripped into his team.
Sports betting statistics show that the Raptors lost 124-112 to Golden State on Saturday. It was a loss that really didn’t sit well with Bosh. “Just do it,” Bosh said, “Act like you care. We need to do the things that win. We don’t do the things that win. I’m going down and playing offense on their side of the court and their (bench) is louder than we are. That doesn’t make any sense. They’re not playing for anything. We’re trying to make the playoffs. We’re trying to get the fifth seed but that is, like, slipping away every day.”
Toronto is eight in the Eastern Conference playoff race but they are not out of the woods as the Bulls were just 1.5 games back in 9th place entering Sunday’s online sports betting action. Bosh was really unhappy about the loss to a Golden State team that is simply not very good. “We’re supposed to be gearing up for playoff basketball and this is not playoff basketball,” Bosh said. “Their bench is more active than ours is. They’re players are getting more stops. They’re getting more offensive rebounds. Everybody is doing everything. If you look on the schedule now and see Toronto, I’m sure people are checking the win box. I can understand if we lose a game going down fighting, but we’re not fighting at all.”
Toronto also doesn’t want to finish in eighth place since that would be a quick exit in the playoffs against the first place Cleveland Cavaliers. If Toronto could move up they could avoid the Cavaliers in the first round. That does not seem likely based on their recent sports betting results. We’re just not coming out and playing basketball like we need to, I guess,” Bosh said. “For some reason, we just don’t like to secure leads and win basketball games.”
Bosh may be ripping into his teammates but he had six turnovers against Golden State and his head coach Jay Torino is not giving him a pass. “We can get it turned around by having our guys play better,” Torino said, offering the simplest solution. “Our best guys have to play better, bottom line.
