Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

The Philadelphia 76ers come into this matchup with an opportunity to close out the series on their home floor. After dominating the free-throw battle throughout the series, Philadelphia attempted just 25 free-throws compared to 35 for Toronto. This advantage helped the Raptors overcome a strong outside shooting performance from the Sixers. The big news heading into game 5, is how Joel Embiid will perform with a torn ligament in his thumb. Despite the injury, Embiid plans to play through the injury. In terms of betting, Philadelphia enters as the 7.5-point favorites. I am anticipating the Sixers to close things out, but I see the Raptors putting up a strong fight. I recommend taking Toronto ATS.
