Despite being on the second leg of a back to back, I fancy the Raptors to be come out on top against the Philadelphia 76ers tonight.
Toronto will be without Kawhi Leonard as the team avoids playing him on consecutive nights. However, the team ran out comfortable winners last night against the Cavaliers – largely down to Leonard’s season-high 37 points – without two of their main players.
Kyle Lowry and Danny Green should be fresh coming into the game tonight and the Raptors are actually just as strong a team without Leonard – losing only one of the eight games he’s missed so far this season. Additionally, OG Anunoby had a great game last night. He scored 15 of his 22 points in a red-hot first quarter and should be able to show out again tonight considering his lowered minutes due to foul trouble last night.
Because of this, I think the Raptors to win at 5/2 with Skybet is a very nice price for the best team in the East to get another win on the road.
