Wednesday features a match up between two of the more interesting teams in the NBA.
The Raptors come into this game as one of the hottest teams in the NBA. The 76ers have one of the brightest young stars in Joel Embiid.
This is the second match up between the two teams this year. The Raptors won the first meeting 122-95.
The Raptors are giving the Warriors a run for their money for hottest team in the NBA right now. The Raptors have won 9 of their last 10 games and their only loss came at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Not only are the Raptors winning, they are winning big. They have covered the spread in all nine of those wins.
In the first match up between the two teams, they Raptors were led by Kyle Lowry. He had 24 points and 8 assists.
In the first match up between the two teams, Embiid didn’t play so it will be interesting if the Raptors will have a way to shut him down.
The Raptors play a fast paced offense, but also play good defense. They are scoring 111 points a night well only giving up 102.
So far this season the Raptors are 7-3 on the road.
The 76ers come into this game having won their last two games over the Pelicans, and the Pistons.
It’s amazing the difference Joel Embiid has made for the 76ers. It looks like they finally have the star they have been waiting for in the city of brotherly love.
The 76ers are at their best when they are playing a slow pace. They don’t have a ton of great scorers on their team, so a half court game really benefits them.
They are only scoring 97.6 points a night, and only shot 43 percent from the field. They also shoot 36.2 percent from behind the arc.
One thing to watch coming into this game is if Embiid plays. He sat out Monday’s game with a wrist injury but is expected to play against the Raptors.
If he can’t go against them, that changes the whole dynamic of the game and it could get ugly quick.
At home this season the 76ers are 4-11.

Free Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Even though the 76ers get Embiid back in this game, I think the results will be much of the same. The Raptors are playing much better basketball then they were when the teams first met.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Toronto -8.5
I think Toronto’s backcourt will be too much, and they will run away with the game.
