The Line: Toronto Raptors -12 -- Over/Under: 193 See the Latest Odds
The Toronto Raptors play host to the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at the Air Canada Center.
The 76ers are coming off yet another loss, this time by 107-95 thanks to the Pistons who led by as many as 29 points before allowing the reserves to play out the rest of the game. Jahlil Okafor led the scoring with 22 points on 10 of 18 shooting, Robert Covington added 18 points while Nerlens Noel had 10 points and 10 rebounds but no other Sixers player finished in double digits but it wouldn't have mattered as the Pistons dominated this one. With the loss, Philadelphia falls to 1-23 on the season and 1-10 at home.

Meanwhile, the Raptors will be going for a fourth straight win after taking down the Bucks in a 90-83 win on Friday. DeMar DeRozan continued his hot form with a game-high 27 points, Cory Joseph added 13 points while Luis Scola and Kyle Lowry had 12 points each as the Raptors locked them game up early with a dominant 49-31 first half performance. After three loss in four outings, the Raptors look to be back in good shape heading into their last of a four-game homestand against the league's worst team.
In ATS trends, the 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five games overall, while the Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following an ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record.
Head to head, the road team is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings and the over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
This seems like a hefty spread, but the Raptors have been playing well lately and should be able to take advantage of these hapless 76ers at home.
