Pascal Siakam is the third double-digit scorer and Kyle Lowry is dishing 9.2 assists. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 80.2 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game. The Toronto Raptors have lost five of their last eight road games.
The Philadelphia 76ers look for a statement victory after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 115.5 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 27.2 points and 13.5 rebounds while Jimmy Butler is averaging 18.9 points and 3.7 assists. JJ Redick is the third double-digit scorer and Ben Simmons is grabbing 9.4 rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 76.7 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.4 rebounds per game. The Philadelphia 76ers have won seven of their last nine home games.
The Raptors are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. Eastern Conference, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 road games. The 76ers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 vs. NBA Atlantic. The Raptors are 26-12-2 ATS in the last 40 meetings in Philadelphia and 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings. The under is 6-2 in 76ers last 8 overall. The under is 6-2 in Raptors last 8 overall.
The home team has won eight of the last nine meetings between the Raptors and 76ers, and they've covered each of the last five meetings. Of course, that includes the 76ers winning by 25 points when these clubs met back in late December. The Toronto Raptors don't look nearly as scary as they did a couple of months ago, and a lot of that has to do with an offense that's dropped off a bit, which includes under 44 percent shooting in their last five games. The Philadelphia 76ers are playing their most consistent ball of the season and are now winning games at home by an average of 10.1 points with an offense that shoots hot percentages fro everywhere on the court. The Raptors have also been horrible against the number on the road. This line is more than reasonable to back the 76ers at home.
