76ers vs Raptors Pick
A lean Sixers squad entertains the Raptors for their first matchup of the season.
The division rivals have both struggled lately with Philadelphia losing two in a row and Toronto losing three in a row. Philadelphia’s losses have largely been attributed to starters contracting Covid-19. Role players like Georges Niang and Andre Drummond have stepped up in recent games but the Sixers will need everyone playing at a top level to fill the void.
The Raptors have the second-best defense in the league, allowing 102 points per game. They’ve struggled offensively though, shooting 43% from the field and 32.6% from deep. Consistent shooting against the Sixers should mean a win for the Raptors.
Until recently, the Raptors were the last undefeated team ATS on the road. Even if Pascal Siakam sits out due to rest, the Raptors have enough talent to overpower the undermanned Sixers and cover the spread.
Pick: Toronto Raptors +2.5
