Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers – Tuesday, February 5th

Where: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Stream: Drama on TNT, NBA League Pass
NBA Basketball Betting Odds:
The Raptors enter tonight’s contest sporting a 38-16 record that ranks them No. 1 in the Atlantic Division. And in the Eastern Conference, Toronto is second only to the Milwaukee Bucks. Right now the Raptors are 2 games behind the conference leading Bucks, so it’s safe to say they’re right in the mix of things. However, Toronto is 2-3 in their last 5 so they could certainly use a rebound this Tuesday night. And since the franchise is 7-3 in their last 10 meetings against Philly, it’s safe to assume they get the win tonight. Tonight’s NBA basketball betting odds are pegging Toronto as an underdog on the road, which is pretty surprising. Granted Toronto is 1-2 in their last 3 road games, so that’s probably what the odds are going for. But at the end of the day, these odds make taking Toronto straight up an extremely appealing offer.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (27.4 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 3.1 apg), Serge Ibaka (16.1 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 1.4 apg), and Pascal Siakam (15.4 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 2.8 apg).
The 76ers step into this evening’s matchup sporting a 34-19 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the Atlantic. But in the Eastern Conference, Philly is currently nested at the No. 5 spot. Technically the 76ers are tied alongside Indiana and Boston for the No. 3 spot in the conference. That said, it’s clear that Philly could use a win this evening. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear they’ll have to turn to their offense to get the W. Right now the 76ers are scoring 115.5 per game while Toronto is putting up 113.8. Defensively Philadelphia is at an unsurprising disadvantage since they’re giving up 112.0 while the Raptors are allotting 108.5.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (27.2 ppg, 13.2 rpg, 3.6 apg), Jimmy Butler (18.9 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 3.7 apg), and JJ Redick (18.3 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 2.8 apg).
