Preview

Toronto Raptors will be meeting Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday in Toronto, this will be the sixth game of the first round of the playoffs as the Raptors have beaten the Sixers in Philadelphia in game 5 by 15 points as 8.5 points underdogs. This should be a close game and an exciting one to watch as the Raptors are at home and will try to force game 7 and the Sixers will try to put this series to end tonight.

Philadelphia 76ers had a terrible game at home in game 5 especially shooting the ball as they had only 38% shooting from the field and 27% shooting from the 3 Pointers! Joel Embiid is playing through a Thumb injury and will be probable for this game and Thybulle is still out for this game. James Harden haven't been playing well lately and he needs to step up for this game to finish the series before a game 7.

Toronto Raptors had a perfect game in Philadelphia and they came out on top of it by 15 points. Achiuwa played a great game defensively on Embiid and a really good one offensively as well scoring 17 points on 64% shooting from the field. Fred VanVleet didn't play in the last game due to injury and he is doubtful for this game too but it didn't matter much as Siakam stepped up in that game having 23 points, 10 rebounds and 7 Assists on 59% shooting from the field. The Series is suddenly not looking far from the Raptors as they are 3-2 now after a 3-9 starts and they are playing this is at home so they have a big chance.

Trends

Philadelphia are 4-2 ATS last 6 games.

Philadelphia have gone Under the total in 4 of last 5 games.

Philadelphia are 8-3 straight up last 11 games.

Philadelphia are 1-6 ATS last 7 road games.

Toronto are 2-5 ATS last 7 games.

Toronto are 16-4 straight up last 20 games vs the Sixers at home.

Toronto are 8-2 straight up last 10 home games.

Toronto have gone Under the total in 5 of last 6 games.

Head to Head

Last 10 games between both teams are split 5-5 straight up wins for each team but Toronto are 6-4 ATS in those games. The O/U is 4-6 to the Under as the Sixers are averaging 107.1 and the Raptors are averaging 106 points a game. Series is 3-2 for the Sixers as they Sixers have won the first 3 games just for the Raptors to come back and win 2 games in a row. Each team covered the spread when they win the game so far in this series.

Prediction

Toronto Raptors made this a series again after everyone thought it's done, the Sixers have won 3 straight games to get a perfect 3-0 start but then the Raptors turned the tables and won 2 straight now and one of them was in Philadelphia. Four of the Five games played in the series have went under the total and I like this game to be the same as the Raptors and the Sixers games have been going that way and even before the playoffs in the last few regular season games so give me the Under in this game.

Pick: Total Under 210.5 points  (-110)
