It would help if we knew the status of Fred VanVleet for this contest, as he's now dealing with a hip injury. With that said, the Raptors do have Barnes back in the mix and Gary Trent seems to be recovered from the illness he was dealing with earlier in the series. Embiid wasn't as dominant as he was previously, and that thumb will need surgery at the end of the year. The Philadelphia 76ers are the more talented team, and they're excellent at home where their role players thrive, but the Raptors have enough toughness and defense to hang around and let's not forget this series could easily be tied if they didn't choke away game 3. The Raptors lose in the underdog role by an average of just 2.5 points. This line is a bit too steep. Give me the Raptors.
