There have been zero signs of a championship hangover in Toronto as the Raptors have thrived in the absence of Kawhi Leonard. They currently sit third in the East standings ahead of a home matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Philly will again be down their star center, Joel Embiid, but have won five of the seven games he has missed including four straight since last Wednesday. With both teams hoping to push their respective win streaks to five games, which squad has an edge tonight?
Our NBA experts analyze the matchup and detail how they plan to bet this game below.
Betting Trend to Know
The Toronto Raptors have been excellent at Scotiabank Arena this season, especially against their Eastern conference foes. They are 10-3 against the spread when facing teams from the East at home.
When the Raps are favored by seven points or more in that situation like they are tonight against the Sixers, their record jumps to 7-0 ATS. — Malik Smith
Bryan Mears: Can’t Trust the 76ers’ Offense
I’m not entirely sure what the reason is, but it’s hard to ignore: The Sixers just plain stink when they leave Philly.
- 76ers at home: +11.6 overall (3rd) | 114.0 Offensive Rating (6th) | 102.4 Defensive Rating (2nd)
- 76ers on road: -3.1 overall (15th) | 106.4 Offensive Rating (24th) | 109.5 Defensive Rating (8th)
There’s a general trend of role-players performing way different at home vs. the road, but that’s a humongous dip in performance. The defense has definitely seen a decrease, but the drop-off in offense is the most startling.
