Before making any Raptors vs. 76ers picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned over $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 4 of the 2021-22 NBA season up over $500 on all top-rated NBA picks this season. It's also on a stunning 110-73 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread that dates back to last season. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows the Raptors are on a back-to-back, but Toronto is playing well. The Raptors are an elite offensive rebounding team, grabbing nearly one-third of their own misses, and Toronto also sports a top-five turnover rate in the NBA. On defense, the Raptors rank in the top 10 in overall efficiency, allowing approximately 1.05 points per possession. Toronto leads the NBA in steals with above-average metrics in limiting assists, and the Raptors rank in the top three of the NBA in points allowed in the paint and fast break points allowed.
The model also knows the 76ers are short-handed, but Philadelphia's offense has been wildly impressive. Doc Rivers' team leads the NBA in offensive rating, scoring 113.9 points per 100 possessions. The 76ers also lead the league in field-goal percentage (47.8 percent), with top-three marks in 3-point shooting (38.0 percent) and free throw shooting (82.5 percent). Philadelphia also takes care of the ball well, turning the ball over only 12.8 times per game, and the full picture is encouraging.
