There is one pick tonight.
Philadelphia 76ers +7 spread against Toronto Raptors for 3% of the bankroll.
This seems like a great spot for the Toronto Raptors. They currently own the NBA's best record, are extremely tough at home and are now just coming off a close loss to the Denver Nuggets, which snapped their recent 8-game win streak. Add in the fact that Toronto has dominated this series as of late, and it appears that the Raptors would make for a solid play tonight with all of the (prospective) advantages pointing their way. That being said, we believe this is actually a better spot for the visitors.
As mentioned, the Raptors own the league’s best record. They are an extremely deep team and have been dominating their opponents this season. Meanwhile, the 76ers don't quite look like the playoff contenders they were a season ago, as they have severely struggled on the road this season. Perception is playing a strong role in how these teams are currently viewed, however, this is a huge game for the 76ers, going up against a conference opponent and they will be looking to avenge the 129-122 loss they suffered earlier this season which should only add to their motivation.
The Raptors could come into this matchup a bit overconfident given their relatively "easy" early season win and could also be a bit emotional looking to atone for their most recent loss. We do expect this matchup to be much closer than the first meeting, with the 76ers even having a slight chance to win this one outright. While that may not eventually be the case, the points could certainly come into play in this one.
