Preview

Toronto Raptors will be meeting Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday in Toronto, this will be the third game of the first round of the playoffs as Philadelphia won the first game 131-111 and also won the second game 112-97 and now it's time for the Raptors to try and get back to the series by winning this game.

Philadelphia 76ers have been killing the Raptors on both ends of the floor in both games so far. Embiid had a double double of 31 points and 11 rebounds, he also attempted 14 free throws which is more than the entire Raptors roster in that game! Tyrese Maxey had another good game with 23 points, 9 rebounds and 8 Assists nearly scoring a triple double vs the Raptors. Thybulle is out for this game.

Toronto Raptors had a better game than game 1 but they still got blow out in the end. Toronto shot 42% from the field and 34% from the 3 Pointers but they also got out rebounded 35-41 to the Sixers. Gary Trent Jr. Played last game even though he is injured and he will be probable for game 3, also Scottie Barnes who got injured in game 1 will be doubtful for this game. Anunoby was the best Raptor player in that game with 26 points on 71% shooting from the field.

Head to Head

Last 10 games between the Sixers and Raptors have been 5-5 straight up for each team and also 5-5 ATS wise. Sixers have won and covered first 2 games in this series so far and now it's time for the Raptors to play at home. The O/U record is also 5-5 with the Sixers averaging 110.1 and the Raptors averaging 107.4 points a game.

Prediction

Philadelphia 76ers have won the first game by 20 points and then the second game by 15 points and now it's time for the Raptors to prove that they can beat the Sixers but I'm not sure if they can win this game. Philadelphia 76ers are in a good form on both ends of the floor. Tyrese Maxey went off in the first game then the Raptors couldn't stop Embiid in the second game and only solution was sending him to the free throws line. I like the Sixers to make it 3-0 and potentially winning this series in 4 or 5 games maximum so give me Philadelphia to win and cover.

Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -1.5 (-110)
