Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors 11/25/2019 – Eastern Conference elites collide on Monday as the Philadelphia 76ers play the Toronto Raptors for the first time this season. The Sixers have collected four consecutive victories at the expense of three subpar teams and one emerging contender in the East. As for the Raptors, they have been winning games despite missing Serge Ibaka and Kyle Lowry for several weeks now. The Sixers will just be 1-point favorites over the home team, suggesting that online bookmakers are anticipating a close game North of the Border.

The Sixers salvaged their most emphatic win ever since their opening night victory against the Boston Celtics. Josh Richardson dropped 32 points against his former team and Joel Embiid tallied 23 points and 11 rebounds to lead Philadelphia to a 113-86 win over the Miami Heat. The Sixers shot 50 percent from the field in that game, and more importantly, limited the Heat’s assists to 12.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (22.8 PPG and 11.7 RPG), Tobias Harris (18.0 PPG and 7.6 RPG), and Ben Simmons (13.1 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 7.9 APG).

Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors Betting Picks
Based on the latest NBA odds, this 76ers-Raptors game will likely wind up as a toe-to-toe contest between teams seeking supremacy in the Eastern Conference.
Moneyline: The Raptors and the Sixers engaged in a seven-game series last season with Toronto moving on to the conference finals thanks to Kawhi Leonard’s iconic fade-away jumper from the corner. Obviously, Toronto no longer has Leonard on the team, but Siakam and VanVleet are showing that they are more than enough to fill the shoes left by the finals MVP. In their next game against the Sixers, I expect the two young players to make an impact and lead the Raptors to another important win.
ATS: The Raptors can improve their ATS record to 10-6 with at least a two-point win on Monday.
TOTALs: The total for this game opened at 216 points. UNDER looks a fine NBA over/under betting pick to me since the Sixers’ defense has been limiting opponents’ production between the 90s and low 100s during this four-game stretch.
Score Prediction: 103-100 Raptors
