Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors Betting Picks

The Sixers are 6-4 in their last 10, while the Raptors are 7-3 over the same stretch. These are two teams at the top-10 in NBA future betting, so expect this game to be really competitive. Unfortunately, the Sixers won’t have Joel Embiid in this game since the All-Star center is still recovering from a finger injury.

Moneyline: Cash in on the Raptors at -240. Toronto is playing fantastic basketball now that all starters are healthy. Marc Gasol and Siakam will have a field day inside the paint with Embiid sitting on the bench.

ATS: Pick the Raptors to cover the 6-point spread. Toronto is 3-1 against the spread in their last four games.

TOTALs: Bet on UNDER at 216 points. Scoring wasn’t that explosive in the first meeting between these two teams. The trend will continue on Wednesday.

Score Prediction: 108 – 100 Raptors
