moneyline

I like the 76ers in the opener but PASS on the bet as a single wager because it is just a little bit pricier than is worth it for a single game.

The Raptors won three of the four matchups between the two teams this season, including both games in Philly. Both teams ended the season playing well.

against the spread

The Raptors performed well against the spread on the road. They were 26-15 ATS on the road and 47-35 ATS overall during the regular season.

The 76ers went 17-24 ATS at home this season.

The Raptors went 4-0 ATS against Philly this season.

However, when it comes to the postseason, the matchup at center is overwhelmingly in favor of the Sixers. The Raptors will struggle to contain Embiid.

Take the 76ERS -4.5 (-120).

Over/Under

Three of the four games between the two teams in the regular season hit the over. Both teams scored 109 or more points in three of the four games.

They both averaged more than 109 points per game in the regular season.

The 76ers averaged 125.3 points over the final six games of the regular season. The Raptors averaged 300 in their last 10.

Take OVER215.5 (-112).
