The 76ers look to take the lead on the road this evening. Considering that Philly kicked this series off with an away win, it would not be shocking to see them get the job done tonight. Nevertheless, tonight’s odds are still pegging Toronto as a heavy NBA online betting favorite. Albeit it’s not shocking to see the odds favor Toronto over Philadelphia this evening.

And since Philadelphia enters with a clean bill of health tonight, they should have the tools in place to get the upset. If Philly is to take the lead in the series here, they’ll need Joel Embiid to deliver his best game. In games where Embiid hasn’t showed up, Philadelphia has undoubtedly come out losing. And since Ben Simmons has been a now show on offense this series, it’ll be up to Embiid to keep Philly’s playoff hopes alive.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (21.4 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 3.9 apg), Jimmy Butler (18.9 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 5.1 apg), and Tobias Harris (15.6 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 4.4 apg).
The Raptors have the benefit of playing at home tonight and will be vying to take the lead in this postseason series. A big part of their success undoubtedly has come off the backbone of Leonard’s eye-catching performances. In fact, pundits are claiming that we haven’t seen this level of postseason play from a single player since the days of MJ. Undoubtedly the bookmakers are expecting Leonard to show up bigly this evening. One thing you shouldn’t expect this evening however is crisp shooting. This is because both the Raptors and the 76ers have struggled from beyond the arc.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (32.3 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 3.4 apg), Pascal Siakam (21.3 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 2.4 apg), and Kyle Lowry (11.9 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 7.6 apg).
