The Toronto Raptors fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers while allowing a whopping 144 points, but that can be excused due to the fact they had just eight active players, four of which were 10-day contracts. The latest Raptors odds have them falling once again against a division rival.
Toronto will take on Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers despite the fact that seven players, including Fred VanVleet and Scottie Barnes, remain in the health and safety protocol. Toronto will once again lean on their replacement players in this game.
While this team did beat Philly on the road thanks to the testicular fortitude of VanVleet, they did so without Embiid in the lineup. With everyone healthy, this is a completely different beast.
Will Toronto be able to knock their rivals down a peg and pull off an amazing upset? Will Philadelphia knock the stuffing out of a bunch of replacement players in what could be another dominant victory?
Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under
The latest odds from WynnBET have Philadelphia as -6 favorites against the spread, with this squad -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. Philly is -270 on the moneyline, while Toronto checks at +220 (bet $100 to win $220).
The over-under in this contest is 210, with the under coming in at -110 and the over listed at -110. The over could be worth taking here, as Toronto looked like a complete sieve on the defensive end.

Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction
The Raptors not only have to contend with Embiid in this game, but they will do so without the services of players like Precious Achiuwa to help stop him. Toronto is slightly healthier, but will that make a difference against Philadelphia?
With so many players learning Nick Nurse’s defensive scheme and eschewing practice, it will be very tough for Toronto to slow down a deep Philly team on that end. Expect another loss, albeit a more competitive one than their first shorthanded game against Cleveland.
76ers 121, Raptors 105
