Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors rebuild is now focused on having Pascal Siakam as the cornerstone for this team. Fred VanVleet is expected to take a bigger role after the departure of Kyle Lowry. Backing him up as the team’s sixth-man is Goran Dragic who came from the Lowry trade with the Miami Heat. Gary Trent is expected to start at shooting guard while OG Anunoby at the three position. Rookie Scottie Barnes is expected to get used to the NBA style of basketball and should be the team’s starting small forward midway through the season. Sharing minutes at center is Khem Birch and Chris Boucher.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Ben Simmons drama continues and a huge shakeup is coming to the team this upcoming season. Whatever happens, Joel Embiid is the cornerstone of the team and he has Tobias Harris helping out at the four. Danny Green will continue to stretch the floor with his shooting alongside Seth Curry. Replacing Simmons at the PG will be Tyrese Maxey who showed shades of his potential when the team lacked players due to pandemic protocols. This team was able to boost their bigs with Andre Drummond and Georges Niang being acquired during free agency replacing Dwight Howard.
