Everybody loves the Raptors tonight in Philly. Over 70 percent of bettors are backing Toronto in Game 3, despite the Raptors’ home loss in Game 2. I’m just a caveman and don’t understand your modern world, but I don’t get this.
Philly won Game 2 on the road and pretty much controlled the game from the start. They’re back home, where they were 31-10 this season. I think it’s a tossup game but if you’re giving me a talented team at home and I’m getting a point, I’m taking it. You could argue that Philly is too volatile to be trusted in this spot, but I think Toronto is, too.
The pick is Sixers +1 tonight against Toronto.
Other picks tonight are:
Bruins +120 over Blue Jackets
Avalanche -130 over Sharks
Blue Jays +140 over Angels
