After so much hype and buildup, the Toronto Raptors are finally going to play playoff basketball. This team has been through a lot in the last two years, and they have been rewarded for their troubles with a chance to upset a division rival. Still, the latest Toronto Raptors odds have them positioned as underdogs.

Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers could be a devastating matchup on paper. Not only is Embiid an MVP candidate, but the likes of James Harden, Tobias Harris, and Tyrese Maxey in the supporting cast present an added challenge for the Raptors on defense.

Still, with all of their stars back in the fold and Scottie Barnes ready to remind the league why he is the Rookie of the Year, the squad has as good a shot as any lower seed when it comes to pulling off the upset. After all, they had success against Philly in the regular season.

Will Toronto continue their regular-season success against Philadelphia and grab Game 1? Will they flounder in the spotlight as the 76ers grab Game 1 in such a pivotal series? Setting the tone in what looks like a very even matchup could be extremely important for both sides.

Raptors Injury Report

Toronto has no injuries to report and should be good to go in their playoff opener.

Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

Toronto has proven that they have the skills needed to corral Embiid and limit Harden as best they can. However, both of those two are so talented that they could put up 30 points despite Toronto’s best efforts. That propensity for insane scoring makes them such a deadly combination.

The 76ers have plenty of factors working against them in this series, but it should shock absolutely no one if they take an early lead. Luckily for Nick Nurse and Toronto, they will have more than enough to rebound from what could be a close loss and try to take home a series win.
