On Wednesday evening, the Sixers and Raptors meet in an Eastern Conference clash featuring two teams that were expected to be around the second and sixth seeds, though the roles have reversed. Let’s get into our Sixers-Raptors betting preview, including odds, boosts, and picks.
This matchup is one that sees an underachieving Sixers squad, one that’s recently been ravaged by injuries, take on a Toronto Raptors team that overachieved in practically every way imaginable.
While the Sixers sputtered to a 39-26 record, which is far from terrible, but given the preseason expectations that the Sixers could contend for the top seed in the Eastern Conference, sitting in sixth place is nothing short of a failure on multiple levels.
The Raptors, on the other hand, lost superstar Kawhi Leonard- who delivered a championship in his lone season in Toronto, as well as sharpshooter Danny Green, who bolted for a better chance at a title with the Lakers. The trio of Pascal Siakam, Kyle Lowry, and Fred VanVleet have been nothing short of incredible while leading their team to a 5-1 record in the bubble, which has them sitting comfortably in second place in the East.
