Sixers blast Heat

Philadelphia cruised to a 113-86 home win Saturday night over Miami to improve to 11-5 overall and 7-0 at home. The Sixers led 28-13 after one quarter of play and continued to roll from there. Josh Richardson led Philadelphia with 32 points on 11-of-15 shooting against his former team including 6-of-7 from 3-point distance plus 4-of-5 at the free throw line. He also dished out four assists. Joel Embiid accounted for 23 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocked shots. Tobias Harris had 19 points, eight boards, two assists and two steals. Al Horford added 16 points, six caroms and three assists. 

Raptors win third straight

Toronto picked up a 119-116 win at Atlanta Saturday night to move to 11-4 overall and 5-4 on the road. The Raptors outscored the Hawks 32-26 in the fourth quarter to close out the victory. Pascal Siakam led Toronto with 34 points on 11-of-18 shooting including 4-of-6 from 3-point range plus 8-of-9 at the free throw line. He also notched four rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots. Fred Van Vleet tallied 25 points, nine assists and three boards. Norman Powell registered 20 points and three caroms. Chris Boucher added 13 points and eight rebounds off the bench.

NBA Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The 76ers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Monday games. Philadelphia is 2-5 ATS in its last seven games versus the Eastern Conference.

Toronto

The Raptors are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 home games. The home team is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.

Prediction:

I feel like the wrong team is favored here. Toronto is without Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, plus of course superstar Kawhi Leonard who provided the playoffs dagger six months ago is now in LA. But even so, Siakam and VanVleet have been a two-man wrecking crew as of late with significant contributions coming from role players such as Powell and Boucher. The Raptors haven't lost at home, whereas Philly has struggled away from home. I'll gladly take the Raptors as small dogs here.
