NBA Odds: Toronto Raptors vs. Philadelphia 76ers, Game 6

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 07-May-2019

It was another nail-biter, but the Toronto Raptors have evened their second-round series with the Philadelphia 76ers. Toronto won Game 4 on Sunday, 101-96 as 2.5-point road dogs; they'll be back at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday for Game 6, tipping off at 8 PM ET on ESPN.

First, these two teams will meet in Toronto for Game 5 on Tuesday (8 PM ET, TNT). The Raptors are 6-point favorites at press time with a total of 211.5, holding steady since the open. Each of the first four games in this series went under the posted total, as both teams have struggled from the perimeter – especially the Raptors, who are 31.4% on wide-open threes (with the nearest defender at least six feet away) and 23.7% on open threes (4-6 feet away).

Joel Embiid had a difficult day on offense in Game 4, shooting 2-of-7 overall and 0-of-1 from downtown. He's been dealing with a gastrointestinal issue and reportedly needed an IV before playing Sunday. Meanwhile, Pascal Siakam (right calf contusion) was a game-time decision after being listed as doubtful, got the start, and shot 2-of-10 while missing all four of his trey attempts. Both were expected to play Tuesday.
