The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Monday with nine more games, including a battle between the Toronto Raptors and Philadelphia 76ers. The Raptors rank 10th in the Eastern Conference with a 13-17 record, while the 76ers check in fifth with a 16-12 record. This lines up as an intense game.
Toronto is reeling right now as it has dropped each of its last five games. That includes a 126-110 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday. Meanwhile, Philadelphia's 118-106 win over Golden State on Friday marked its fourth victory in a row. Will that dominance continue on Monday night?

Raptors vs. 76ers Prediction & Pick
The Raptors are getting torched on defense this season, which is something head coach Nick Nurse's team has not experienced in past seasons. Toronto is allowing an opponent shooting percentage of 48.9% (No. 29 in NBA) on the year and 123.0 points over its last last three games (T-No. 24 in NBA).
A matchup against a red-hot Philadelphia team on the second night of a back-to-back is not the best scenario for Toronto, either. The 76ers are averaging a whopping 126.3 points over their last four games and rank among the top top 15 teams in terms of both offensive and defensive efficiency.
Toronto as earned just one road win over its last 10 attempts, so give me Philadelphia at home.
Final Score Prediction: Raptors: 110 | 76ers: 116
Raptors vs. 76ers Best Bet
As mentioned above, the 76ers' offense has looked outstanding as of late. Philadelphia has put up at least 118 points in each of the five games since James Harden made his return from an injury. His ability to find the open man (10.6 assists per game) has created more and more scoring chances.
Backing the 76ers to score more than 113 points once again is the best bet on Monday. Toronto has allowed more than 113 points in each of its last three games overall and is allowing a 36.2% three-point percentage on the road. That bodes well for players like De'Anthony Melton and Tobias Harris.
Bet: Philadelphia 76ers Team Total Over 113.5 (-110)
