Market Report for Saturday, April 23rd

*Lines are opening numbers

Philadelphia 76ers (-2.5, 214.5) at Toronto Raptors

Game 4: 76ers lead 3-0

After squandering a potential series saving victory in Game 3 the Raptors are back on the floor with a chance to bring this series back to Philadelphia. If they play their game like they did on Wednesday then it is certainly plausible they can force a fifth game in this series. Toronto’s defense finally showed up in Game 3 and limited Philadelphia to 1.108 points per possession while forcing turnovers on 25.8% of their offensive possessions. The Raptors also mucked the game up and finally slowed down the 76ers’ transition offense by holding them to 1.0 point per play. However, missed free throws and bad execution killed their chances at splitting the series deficit in half, and that could hold them back yet again today. Toronto had a 90.9 offensive rating in halfcourt settings on Wednesday which is right in line with a team that finished near the bottom of the league in that category in the regular season. The disjointed effort on offense is why Philadelphia was able to creep back into Game 3 and why Toronto is going to find it difficult to pull away from this team today. Scottie Barnes is doubtful still and there is no reason to rush him back now that the series stands where it does. The number is high on the 76ers but with my series bet on the Raptors waiting to be burned I will not be involved here. Total is down to 213 and if it gets back to 214 that would be worth playing Under given how slow this series has been.
