Run It Back – Philadelphia 76ers Vs Toronto Raptors Betting Breakdown
In the first rematch between these two teams since the infamous Kawhi game-seven quadruple-bounce buzzer-beater in last year’s playoffs, the Sixers will look to avenge the game that left Joel Embiid in tears and spawned a thousand memes.
The good news for the Raptors in this one is that they get to relive last season’s miracle on their home-court exactly where the magic happened. Unfortunately, they’ll most likely need an even more miraculous effort after losing their playoff superhero to the sunny streets of Los Angeles and still being without starters Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka. And while Nick Nurse and his Raptors always seem to find a way to win big games, there is little doubt the Sixers will be coming to Toronto thirsting for blood and looking to avenge last season’s heartbreaker, something that the sharps appear to be on board for with the betting line moving from Philadelphia +1 at open to Philadelphia -2 at time of writing.
And with the 76ers also being part of a dataset focused on Conference favourites that has covered 55% of the time over the past 4 years (including 14-9-2 so far this season), I’ll happily pay the -130 moneyline, expecting Philadelphia to win this game more often than the 56% required to break even on that price.
That’s it for today, bet safe and best of luck out there!
