Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

After this series between the Toronto and Philadelphia appeared to be wrapped up early, the Raptors have rattled off 2 straight wins, including an impressive 15-point victory on the road. Throughout his tenure with the team, Toronto coach Nick Nurse has shown the ability to make adjustments on both ends of the floor. This appears to be happening yet again, as the team held the Sixers to just 88 points. Now, with the series shifting back to Toronto, the Raptors have an excellent chance to force a game 7. Even still, Philadelphia comes into the game as the 1.5-point favorite. However, look for the Raptors to come up with another big performance, fueled by a home-court advantage that is one of the best in the league.
