Why Philadelphia 76ers are a good bet at +7?

The 76ers impressed in the 112-101 Game 6 win. Philadelphia really stepped up the defensive intensity. They held the Raptor to 43.2% from the field. Toronto went 35-of-81.

Philadelphia’s defense was even better against the Raptors’ three-point shooters. Toronto only made 9-of-36 from behind the arc. That’s 25%. If the 76ers play defense as well on Sunday as they did in Game 6, they’ll have a shot at the moneyline upset.

Why Toronto Raptors are a good bet at -7?

Toronto took a backward step in Game 6, but they’re back at Scotiabank Arena on May 12. The Raptors are a much better team at home. They average 35.9% from three. There’s no way the 76ers hold the Raptors to 25% from behind the arc again.

If Toronto just shoots 34% from three, they should take Game 7. The key is for a player to step up and give Kawhi Leonard a hand. That didn’t happen in Game 6, but it should in Game 7.

76ers vs Raptors Game 7 Final Analysis

The Philadelphia 76ers had everything go their way in Game 6. Nothing could go their way in Game 7. One of the reasons why Philadelphia won Game 6 was because no other player in Toronto’s starting five besides Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam stepped it up.

Kyle Lowry had 13, Marc Gasol had 7, and Danny Green had 8. Lowry was 3-of-7 from three. Green was 2-of-8 from three. Even Leonard had a bad night from the three-point line. Kawhi went 0-for-4.

All 3 should shoot much better from behind the arc on Sunday. Not only that, but the last time Marc Gasol played at home, he helped the Raptors force Joel Embiid into 8 turnovers. Toronto will win and cover the spread on Sunday.
