Toronto Raptors DFS Notes

Pascal Siakam totaled 24 points, seven assists, three rebounds and three blocks in Saturday’s loss to the Sixers. Spicy P was huge for Toronto yet again, though his productive night wasn’t enough to earn the Raptors a Game 1 victory. The big man has been excellent as a rebounder, facilitator and scorer this season, especially after the All-Star break when he averaged 24.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 5.5 assists. Saturday’s stat line shouldn’t be surprising, but we may need to see a bit more from Siakam in Game 2 if he hopes to guide his team to a win and even up this series.

Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes

Joel Embiid collected 19 points (5-of-15 FG), 15 rebounds, four assists and a block in Saturday’s win over Toronto. The NBA scoring champ finished this one with less than 20 points, but it didn’t matter as the 76ers took a commanding 1-0 series lead on the back of a 20-point win against the Raptors. Embiid’s shot wasn’t falling, but his teammates did more than enough to compensate, as Tobias Harris put up 26, James Harden went for 22 and Tyrese Maxey unloaded with a game-high 38.

Raptors vs. 76ers Game 2 NBA Playoffs Betting Prediction

Despite their Game 1 loss, the Raptors have still covered in four of their last five meetings with the 76ers, who are 3-7 at the betting window in their last 10 games overall and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games coming off a victory. Toronto is also 4-1 against the spread in its last five games as an underdog, 26-10 against the number in its last 36 games versus an opponent with a winning record and has cashed in seven of its last 10 road games.
