Philadelphia at Toronto

1 unit on Toronto +140 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.4) RESULT: WIN
Philadelphia is 13-2 at home and only 7-8 on the road, including losses in its last three road contests, and the 76ers now play the Raptors, who are riding a three-game winning streak. Toronto somehow pulled out an 86-81 victory at Minnesota in an ugly game on Friday when it shot only 32.9% and held the Timberwolves to 38.6%. The Raptors average 113.2 points and a .450 field goal percentage on the season, and they are shooting .382 on 3-pointers. Toronto wants to avenge a 100-93 loss to the Sixers on Dec. 29 when the Raptors were in the middle of a slow start to the season, but they are much-improved since that game. Philadelphia is 2-8 ATS the last 10 meetings on the road against Toronto and 14-37-3 ATS its last 54 road games overall, 16-33-2 ATS as a road favorite. This is a good spot for an outright win. Play the Raptors on the moneyline.
