Betting Trends to Know

The Raptors lost for just the fifth time on Monday. Should bettors expect Toronto to bounce back tonight?

Since 2005, elite teams (win rate of at least 80%) have gone 93-85-1 ATS when favored after a loss. If the team is a home favorite, like the Raps, the teams have gone 57-44-1 (56%) ATS. — John Ewing

The Raptors and Sixers enter this Eastern Conference showdown as two of the top three seeds in the East, with both teams going over the total in at least 60% of their games this season.

The Raptors are the second-most profitable team to the over this season, while the Sixers rank among the top 10 to the over.

Since 2005, when two teams meet that have a win rate of 60% or higher, including both teams’ games going over the total at least 60% of the time, the under is 35-24 ATS (59.3%), going under the total by 3.8 PPG. — Evan Abrams
