Although this contest between the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers will not have any consequence when it comes to the upcoming playoffs, this one gives us one last chance to bet on regular-season NBA basketball.
The Philadelphia 76ers are hands down one of the worst teams in NBA history. That’s not an opinion — it’s a fact.
Although this team has a new outlook on its potential following the departure of Sam Hinkie, there’s literally no reason to trust this team during the remainder of the current season. The Colangelo’s should help turn things around beginning next year, but that’s not going to do any good against the Raptors on Tuesday.
As a general recap of what the Sixers have done this season, consider the following:
- 30th in points per game
- 28th in points allowed
- 30th in offensive efficiency
- 23rd in defensive efficiency
- Worst record in the NBA (fewest wins at home and fewest wins on the road
The Sixers winning’ outings have been few and far between, so betting on them to come up with a win straight up is, well, ill-advised at best.
The Toronto Raptors enter Tuesday night’s contest against Philly having won three of their last four.
Their most recent victory against the New York Knicks doesn’t do much to move the needle considering the Raptors’ current situation; however, wins over the playoff-bound Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Hornets give you the feeling that Toronto’s No. 2 overall standing not only makes sense, but gives the Raptors a strong chance to compete with the Cleveland Cavaliers for an Eastern Conference title.
Against Philly, Toronto simply needs to take care of the ball. Philly can’t do much without easy buckets, which means preventing turnovers and transition opportunities is going to be essential for the Raptors.
Unfortunately, if there’s any game Raptors fans should be nervous about, this might be it. And not just because Toronto could potentially be overlooking its lowly opponent.
At this point in the process, Toronto can not move up or down in the standings. There’s too much distance between them and No. 3, and the Cleveland Cavaliers have locked up the conference’s top seed.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
There shouldn’t be much mystery as to who’s going to win this contest. The Raptors are going to be in the midst of the battle for an Eastern Conference championship, while the Sixers are already looking forward to their individual trips to the Bahamas.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers ATS
The catch, of course, comes down to what the spread looks like.
The Sixers have ironically been excellent as of late ATS because they’ve been so awful SU and nobody wants to give them a fair spread. We’ve got Philly narrowly escaping a double-digit loss, but make sure to check the line as we get closer to help make your final decision.
