The 76ers are 14-37-3 ATS in their last 54 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Raptors are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The over is 4-1 in 76ers last 5 overall. The over is 9-3 in Raptors last 12 overall. The 76ers are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Toronto and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers have been the more consistent team this season, but they still have their issues on the road and they've been brutal against the spread on the road dating back to last season. The Toronto Raptors are playing their best ball of the season right now, and that includes winning they last five games by an average of 2.4 points. I'll side with the Raptors here.
