Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors Betting Pick
Tuesday Night at 7:30PM EST at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida
Why bet the Raptors?
✅ 76ers still subpar on the road: Looking back at the 2020 season, the Philadelphia 76ers had one of the league’s best home records and one of the league’s worst road records.
While they have cleaned up the road woes to some degree in 2021, they are still not a quality road team. Despite currently holding the number one seed in the Eastern Conference and being nine games over .500 overall, the 76ers are still a losing team on the road this season.
Their pace slows and they see a significant drop in efficiency on both ends of the floor in road games versus that in home games. Included in the 76ers road struggles is a loss at Toronto just two days ago.
✅ Raptors getting into a groove: After a 1-6 start to the season, the Raptors have now eclipsed the .500 mark at 16-15 and are playing at the level we have come to expect from them.
Despite battling through some injuries, they have had an impressive past week, including two road wins at Milwaukee, one of the toughest places to play in the league.
The Raptors have won four straight, are 9-3 in their last 12 games overall and bookmakers have not properly adjusted to the level the Raptors are currently playing at.
Betting Pick: Toronto Raptors +2

There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency. Having the knowledge of which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers Moneyline Predictions
Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play in terms of the wager.
Instead of laying or taking the points on the point spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game, and want the best Raptors vs 76ers Money Line predictions, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Philadelphia 76ers -3 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread bet, the 76ers can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The Raptors can be wagered on to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -150 on the Philadelphia 76ers and expect to get about +125 on the Toronto Raptors.
With the all time series being played to an advantage on the Raptors side history can help towards a determining factor on a money line wager. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The recent history siding with the Raptors is a helpful indicator, but the current form this season is more important in terms of a betting selection.
