Philadelphia 76ers will be meeting Toronto Raptors on Saturday in Philadelphia, This will be the first game in the first round for those teams this season and a series that should be a close one, They have played 4 times this season and the Raptors won 3 of those games with only 1 win for the Sixers.
Toronto Raptors have been playing great basketball and I think they are a team that can cause troubles for the Sixers and might go to game 6 or even 7 in this series. Coach Nick Nurse had a good season and he will try to stop Embiid to increase his winning chance for this matchup. Raptors have beaten the Sixers 115-109, 93-88 and 119-114 this season. OG anunoby is questionable for this game.
Philadelphia 76ers have beaten the Raptors only 1 time this season (114-109) and they will try to continue their top form at the end of the season as they have won 5 of last 6 games this season and that only loss was to the Raptors! James Harden haven't been playing good for several games now and he should get back to form in the playoffs.
Toronto are 12-6 ATS last 18 games.
Toronto are 8-2 straight up last 10 games this season.
Toronto games have gone Under in 6 of last 6 road games.

Head to Head
Last 10 games between the Sixers and Raptors have seen the Raptors win and cover 6 out of those 10 games with 4 wins and covers to the Sixers, Record is 3-1 to the Raptors this season. The O/U is 4-5-1 to the Under with the Raptors averaging 107.7 and the Sixers averaging 106.3 points a game.
Philadelphia 76ers will play this game to prove something and that is that they are capable of winning the title with Embiid and Harden this season. Both teams are in form right now so that should be a good game to watch, this is a close series and Raptors are very capable to make the upset in this round but I like the Sixers here at home to get it done and get the Win and cover with Embiid having a big game.
Pick: Philadelphia 76ers -4.5 (-110)
