Lack of defense, Embiid’s broken finger, and Harden’s bad performance, these things were all part of Philadelphia’s loss. As the series heads back to Toronto for Game 6 people are starting to question Doc Rivers’ coaching abilities. Can the Raptors seize their chance for a Game 7? Find out everything you need to know here, in our Raptors v 76ers Game 6 betting preview.
Raptors v 76ers Game 6 Betting Preview
Some might think Philadelphia is in trouble. They were up 3-0 not so long ago but thanks to Pascal Siakam’s consistency the Raptors won the last two games. The 76ers were dreadful in Game 5 as they lost by 15 points. Embiid’s injury has been confirmed as a torn ligament in his right thumb. Surprisingly the surgery is postponed until the season’s over, which could be sooner than later. James Harden and head coach Doc Rivers take most of the blame for their recent loss. Rivers is the only coach in NBA history to blow three 3-1 leads in the playoffs. Philadelphia’s confidence is slowly fading away. The Raptors v 76ers Game 6 betting preview is also proof of this. As they head back to Toronto, experts favor the Raptors over the 76ers in a close game. If the Raptors win on Thursday, we could be witnessing history.
No team has ever come back from being down 3-0. The 76ers were booed off the court by their fans for their abysmal performance. Toronto has nothing to lose in Game 6 and that’s their advantage. What’s more, 76ers players Matisse Thybulle and Charles Bassey are likely out for the upcoming game. Good news for Raptors fans, it looks like starting point-guard Fred VanFleet has a chance to return. His status is listed as day-to-day. The 76ers need an aggressive Harden right now. If Philadelphia shoots 25% from deep and only 62.5% on free throws again we’ll likely get a Game 7, and the first one in this year’s playoffs. Of course, our Raptors v 76ers Game 6 betting preview also contains odds for the upcoming game. Check out what each team’s odds are below.
