Against the Spread Pick
Philly just got beat up by Milwaukee the night before and as this is being written it is not clear if their reinforcements will be in town just yet. Probably. That helps a little in terms of fatigue but not in terms of cohesiveness. Philly is a strong defensive team that plays best at home. Take the under.
Over Under Pick
The Indiana Pacers have Victor Oladipo back, but it actually hasn’t resulted in many wins. Coming into this game they have lost three in a row, and they were the favorites in two of those. As for the Raptors they have dealt with different injuries but they are still playing well. They have won ten in a row, and covered the spread in six of those. Over their last five games, they have scored 119.6 points per contest and that offense will be the difference. They are shooting 51.1 percent from the field during that stretch. The Raptors are 12-4 against the spread in their last 16 games against the central division.
