Point Spread: -5½/-101 Philadelphia
4* Raptors/76ers NBA No Doubt ATS Winner: 76ers -5.5
The 76ers have continued to fight and claw their way to victories this season behind a very stingy defense that is only giving up 90.1 ppg. Philadelphia should have no trouble disposing of the Raptors for a second time this season. The 76ers went into Toronto and came away with a 93-83 win.
This is simply a difficult spot for Toronto. The Raptors played at Boston this past Saturday, flew back home to face Orlando on Sunday and now heads back to the road for their third game in four days. They simply aren't going to have the energy needed to beat a strong defensive team like the 76ers. While Philadelphia is playing their second game in three days, they will be finishing up a five-game homestand. With an overall record of just 6-4 the 76ers have no reason to not come out strong and take advantage of a tired Toronto team that is still playing without starters Kyle Lowry and Landry Fields.
The 76ers are an excellent team to back when they are playing in the middle of homestand. Philadelphia is 30-16 ATS in home games after playing a home game over the last 3 seasons. They are also an impressive 20-7 ATS versus poor teams - outscored by their opponents by 3+ points/game over the last 2 seasons. BET THE 76ERS!
