Game: Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers Apr 4 2012 7:05PM
Prediction: Toronto Raptors
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: We played on the Sixers last night and they lost but ended up covering in a hard fought game against Miami, a team they desperately wanted to beat but once again came up short. Philadelphia is in must win mode now as it trails the Celtics by a game and a half in the Atlantic Division but must win does not necessarily translate into a cover, especially at this price. The Sixers have been solid following a loss this year and have been good at covering the big number but this is not a good spot for them. Toronto has won two straight games as well as three of its last four and despite sitting well outside the playoff picture, the Raptors continue to fight. They compare very similar to Golden St. which is playing for nothing but continues to compete as the season winds down. Toronto is coming off a five-game homestand following a win last night against Charlotte and while it is 8-18 straight up on the highway this season, it is 15-11 ATS in those games which shows some undervaluation. There should be a lot of extra energy in the tank for the Raptors as they will be out for some payback following a 35-point loss suffered here in January. Obviously road revenge is not a very strong angle because of the big advantage that the home floor usually provides however staying within this number is more than realistic. And let's face it, the Sixers are not playing very good and haven't been for close to two months now, going just 9-15 over their last 24 games. Toronto has fared well against the top teams of late, going 11-3-1 ATS in their last 15 games against teams with a winning record while going 4-0 ATS in its last four road games against teams with a winning percentage greater than .600. The Sixers are 0-5 ATS in their last five games when playing with no rest and they are 0-2 ATS this season when playing with no rest and heading home following a road game. Toronto looks for revenge and winning outright is far from out of the question. 10* (703) Toronto Raptors
