The Philadelphia 76ers look for a win after losing their opener to the Bucks. The Philadelphia 76ers look to avoid their back-to-back 0-2 starts to the season. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 117 points on 51.3 percent shooting and allowing 118 points on 50.6 percent shooting. Tyrese Maxey is averaging 31 points and 8 assists, while Kelly Oubre Jr. is averaging 27 points and 4 rebounds. Joel Embiid is the third double-digit scorer and Tobias Harris is grabbing 7 rebounds.

Toronto Raptors Betting Preview
The Toronto Raptors look for a win to get above a .500 record. The Toronto Raptors have won 5 straight home games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 100 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 99 points on 35.7 percent shooting. Scottie Barnes is averaging 19.5 points and 9 rebounds, while Pascal Siakam is averaging 16.5 points and 7.5 rebounds. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and O.G.

The Toronto Raptors are allowing 22.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 50 rebounds per game.
The Toronto Raptors are appealing in the underdog role because of their defensive effort and their ability to wear down teams. However, the Raptors are on the end of a back to back and running into a rested 76ers squad. The Philadelphia 76ers have had time to rest up, practice and despite losing their opener, they took a good Bucks team down to the wire without Harden. The 76ers should feel confident after their opening game. The line is somewhat reasonable. Give me the 76ers in a comfortable road victory.
