The Raptors have been playing great defense and rank #8 in the NBA allowing 108 points per game and have dominated the 76ers at home winnings 15 of the last 20 head to head games there. The Sixers are still trying to find their way on this season and have lost 3 of their first 3 games. I expect the Raptors to take advantage of their defense and will dominate the 76ers. Take the Raptors.
