The Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors meet Sunday in NBA action at the Scotiabank Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a 76ers vs Raptors prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have been in poor form as they've lost five of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after falling painfully short to the Cavaliers in a 117-114 road defeat on Friday. Kyle Lowry led the team with 23 points and six assists, Tobias Harris added 21 points while Tyrese Maxey chipped in with 16 points and 11 assists. As a team, the 76ers shot 44 percent from the field and 16 of 40 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Cavaliers all the way until midway through the fourth quarter.

Toronto Raptors

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been in terrible form as they've lost 14 of their last 15 games overall and they will be hoping to put an end to a 12-game slide after getting destroyed by the Knicks in a 145-101 loss on Wednesday. Gradey Dick led the team with 23 points on 10 of 18 shooting, Gary Trent Jr added 18 points with six assists while Garrett Temple chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Raptors shot 46 percent from the field and 11 of 31 from the 3-point line as they struggled right from the tipoff, getting outscored by 80-59 in the first half and the margin only got bigger as the game wore on.

  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for steals per game this season (8.3).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.0).

76ers vs Raptors prediction

The 76ers are still missing a couple key players including Joel Embiid and De'Anthony Melton, while the Raptors are still missing Immanuel Quickley, RJ Barrett and Jakob Poeltl already ruled out. You really couldn't back either side with any confidence these days as both have been in terrible slumps. The 76ers were more than competitive in their last defeat and I think they are good enough to get over the hump in this spot against this ice-cold Raptors outfit who just allowed 145 points to the Knicks.
