Philadelphia at Toronto

1 unit on Toronto -245 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.41) RESULT: WIN
Young Philadelphia is terrific at home but just 4-7 straight-up on the road. The problem is defense, ranked #21 in points allowed overall and this is just their second road game over the last seven contests. Meanwhile, Toronto has it all, fourth in the NBA in points scored, second in field goal shooting, while the defense is eighth in points allowed, seventh in field goal defense and at defending the three-pointer. Toronto owns the best record in the NBA and is in bounce-back mode after its eight-game win streak ended at home the last game to Denver. Toronto took the first meeting 129-112 behind 31 points from Kawhi Leonard, so back the home team to win the game. Play Toronto on the moneyline.
