NBA Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The 76ers are 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six games as an underdog and 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight road games.

Toronto

The Raptors are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games following a win, but 22-7 ATS in their last 29 games playing on 1 day of rest.

Prediction:

The home team has won and covered in both meetings between these two. Each is coming in playing pretty well right now. Philly has struggled with good defensive team as of late, but as a whole they have been playing pretty well without Embiid. Still, their opponents haven’t been the best of the best. Toronto has beaten up on some bad competition as well, but the Raptors have scored at least 122 in four straight and their defense is good enough to force Philly into being an outside shooting team.

NBA Prediction: Toronto Raptors -6.5
