Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers CashBet Wagering Analysis

The Philadelphia 76ers are still holding their punches but they should throw a few in Game 2 as the Toronto Raptors look to come back strong. NBA betting lines still see the Sixers coming out on top with a lot of mismatches between them.

Raptors Have to get Their Defense Going

The Toronto Raptors did not do a bad job on offense at all but the defense needs a lot of work as this team gave up as much as 131 points to the Philadelphia 76ers during the first game. There were only four players that reached double figures and this team needs more people to step up. One of the players that need to step up was Gary Trent Jr. who shot only 18% from the field in Game 1. Precious Achiuwa and Chris Boucher would also need to be factored in the series in order to keep the game close against the Sixers.

Sixers Getting More from Harris and Maxey

James Harden and Joel Embiid have always been given to produce every night for the Philadelphia 76ers. Two players who gave the Raptors more problems to focus on were Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris. Maxey had a very impactful offensive night as he tallied 38 points during Game 1 while Tobias Harris was accurate from the field doing an accurate 64% from the field and finished with 26 points. These two were the tandem that took over for the Sixers putting Harden and Embiid on the side a bit combining for 41 points. There are more weapons than the Sixers can unleash with Shake Milton and Mathysse Tybulle still waiting for their chance.

Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers Head-to-Head with Spread

The Toronto Raptors need to play a perfect game including extra pressure on the defensive end to make this a match. This should be closer than Game 1 but the edge still belongs to the Philadelphia 76ers.
